California Department of Justice Withdraws Proposal of "Emergency" Large-Capacity Magazine Regulations

On Thursday, December 29, the California Department of Justice (DOJ) backed down from its proposed “emergency” regulations on large-capacity magazines, asking the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) to withdraw them from consideration. 

The NRA would like to thank all those who submitted comments and made their voices heard!  This would not have been possible without your efforts. 

Thousands of individuals weighed in despite the suspect timing of the five day comment period opening at the start of the Christmas weekend when few were paying attention. 

The NRA and CRPA submitted a letter to the DOJ and OAL opposing the proposed “emergency" regulations on large-capacity magazines that can be read here.
