California's "Large Capacity Magazine" Ban Struck Down by Federal District Court

Posted by Keith Langer | Mar 30, 2019 | 0 Comments

The Federal District Court for the Southern District of CA has permanently enjoined the State of California from enforcing its confiscatory "Large Capacity Magazine" ban. The decision is Duncan v. Becerra, a lawsuit brought by the NRA and California Rifle & Pistol Association. It is detailed by David Kopel in Reason Magazine here:

This is, of course, only a District Court decision, and the State of California will not spare any expense of its taxpayers' dollars to appeal this decision. However, the court was quite thorough in its reasoning, which should stand up under any objective scrutiny.

We hope the logic spreads to Massachusetts, New Jersey, and similar, benighted states.

Your Time May Be Limited!

If you are a defendant in a civil suit, you have a specific period of time in which to file an answer. Failure to do so can result in a default judgment being issued against you. Failure to timely submit responses to discovery requests can also negatively affect your case. Those named as defendants in criminal cases via clerk magistrate or “show cause” hearings must appear, or the complaint will issue against them. Those seeking to appeal a negative action, such as a firearms license denial or revocation, denial of a permit, or losing a case at trial, all have specific time periods in which to act. Do not lose your rights by inertia or delay.

Act Now!

The law is an area in which inertia can have very negative consequences: The loss of rights and remedies. It is unlikely that your problem will just “go away” - act now to protect yourself and preserve your options.
