NRA Sues California Over Magazine Ban

On Thursday, the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action announced that it, along with the California Rifle and Pistol Association, is supporting an important Second Amendment lawsuit challenging California’s ban on the possession of standard capacity magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds. 

“Legislators in California routinely enact laws that only affect the law-abiding and do nothing to enhance public safety,” said Chris W. Cox, NRA-ILA executive director. “This lawsuit, and others that will follow, is an effort to ensure the rights of law-abiding gun owners are respected in California.”

The lawsuit, Duncan v. Becerra, challenges California’s ban on possession of standard capacity magazines as it violates the Second Amendment and the due process clause of the United States Constitution. Duncan is the second in a series of carefully planned lawsuits challenging the anti-gun laws passed last year, which have collectively become known as “gunmageddon” among gun owners.
