On Wednesday, the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA), in conjunction with the California Rifle and Pistol Association (CRPA), has filed a federal lawsuit challenging California’s ban on “high-capacity” magazines.

 

The lawsuit, known as Duncan v. Becerra, challenges the state’s magazine ban based on three points:

 

  1. The law violates the Second Amendment.
  2. The law violates the due process clause.
  3. The law violates the takings clause of the U.S. Constitution.

 

“Millions of law-abiding Americans own firearms equipped with magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds of ammunition. There is nothing unusual or novel about this technology. Indeed, many of the nation’s best-selling handguns and rifles come standard with magazines that can hold more than ten rounds, and firearms equipped with such magazines are safely possessed by law-abiding citizens in the vast majority of states,” the complaint reads. “The reason for the popularity of these magazines is straightforward: In a confrontation with a violent attacker, having enough ammunition can be the difference between life and death.”

 

In order to help Californians understand the legal challenges they face, the NRA and CRPA will be hosting online webinars. Webinars will go into details on the Department of Justice’s pending “assault weapon” regulations and future regulations.
