Ginny Simone Reports On California Ammo Magazine Ruling

posted on September 15, 2017

In June, U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez issued a preliminary injunction blocking California’s ban on ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. In a strongly worded opinion, Judge Benitez made clear that the Second Amendment is not a second-class Amendment and that the ban on standard capacity magazines would take away private property without compensation—and it would turn law-abiding citizens into what he calls “outlaws.” California Attorney General Xavier Becerra has since appealed the ruling.

NRA News investigative reporter Ginny Simone talked to one of the plaintiffs in the case, Virginia Duncan, who stated that the right to self-defense was at stake. “Who are you to tell me that I can’t have that?” she asked. Sheriff Donny Youngblood of Kern County, Calif., concurred. “The Constitution is our roadmap. And when we start writing our own roadmap, we’re in trouble.”
