Federal Lawsuit Challenging California’s Ban on Standard Capacity Magazines Filed

Today, May 18, the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) announced it is supporting, along with the California Rifle and Pistol Association (CRPA), an important Second Amendment lawsuit challenging California’s ban on the possession of standard capacity magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds. 

The lawsuit, filed by NRA attorneys, titled Duncan v. Becerra, challenges California’s ban on possession of these standard capacity magazines because the law violates the Second Amendment, the due process clause, and takings clause of the United States Constitution. 

Duncan is the second in a series of long and carefully planned lawsuits challenging the package of gun laws passed last year that have collectively become known as “gunmageddon” among gun owners. 

NRA/CRPA will be hosting free webinars on the pending DOJ “assault weapon” regulations, future regulations, along with legal challenges.  Click here to register in advance.   If you would like to view the current webinars on these laws, click here.  If you would like to help our pro-Second Amendment efforts in California with a donation, please click here.  All donations will be spent to specifically benefit California gun owners.
