Duncan v. Becerra Update on NRA and CRPA’s Opposition to California’s Request to Halt “Large-Capacity” Magazine Ruling


On Tuesday, April 2, CRPA, with the support of NRA, filed a comprehensive opposition to California’s request seeking an immediate stay of enforcement of Friday’s decision in the case of Duncan v. Becerra, which found California’s restrictions against so-called “large-capacity” magazines unconstitutional and unenforceable.  

This is the second opposition filed in response to California’s request for a stay.  As reported yesterday, DOJ filed a request seeking an immediate stay while the court considered an additional request to stay the judgment while the case gets appealed. 

The opposition illustrates how California has not shown a strong likelihood that it will succeed on the merits of its case, or that any of the other factors courts consider when deciding to issue a stay weigh in California’s favor.  Palmetto State Armory also provided evidence to counter California’s arguments requesting a stay.

At this time, the Court has yet to issuing a ruling on California’s request to stay the enforcement of its judgment pending appeal.  It is critical that California gun owners stay up-to-date on developments in Duncan to ensure they do not inadvertently violate California law should a stay be issued.
