NSSF applauded the decision of a three-judge panel from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit that affirmed the decision of U.S. District Court Judge Roger T. Benitez in Duncan v. Becerra that California’s ban on possessing firearm magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds violates Second Amendment protections. NSSF submitted an amicus brief in support of the plaintiff’s challenge to the state law. “This is a tremendous victory for all who value the rule of law and preservation of individual liberties protected by the U.S. Constitution,” said NSSF’s Larry Keane.

While the holding in Duncan is a tremendous victory for the Second Amendment, members of the industry should continue to refrain from selling or shipping magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds into California until after the appeal proceeding is concluded. NSSF will update you on developments, including when standard-size magazines can be sold in California.
