California: Preliminary Injunction Sought Against California’s Ban on Possession of Standard Capacity Magazines

On Friday, May 26, a motion for a preliminary injunction was filed in the case of Duncan v. Becerra, a federal lawsuit supported by the National Rifle Association, challenging California’s restrictions against standard capacity magazines.    

California’s new restriction against the mere “possession” of magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds goes into effect July 1, 2017.  If granted, the motion will suspend the enforcement of this restriction while the case is pending.

Duncan is the second in a series of carefully planned lawsuits challenging the package of gun laws passed last year that have collectively become known as “gunmageddon.”  To help NRA's litigation efforts in California, click here
