Duncan v. Bonta
Today, CLDEF joined Gun Owners of America, Inc., and others in filing an amicus brief attacking the constitutionality of a California ban on standard capacity magazines, which the California law mislabels as “Large Capacity Magazines.” The District Court and Ninth Circuit panel both ruled for that the laws were unconstitutional, and the Ninth Circuit granted rehearing en banc. Our brief defends the decision reached by the courts below, but urges the Ninth Circuit to reject its atextual “two-step” test and simply apply the “text, history, and tradition” of the Second Amendment to reach a decision.

CLDEF Files Brief For Former Attorney General Ed Meese Supporting Gen Flynn
CLDEF joined with former U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese to file an amicus brief today in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit supporting General Michael Flynn. The brief explains that the Attorney General of the United States has responsibility to ensure that no persons are prosecuted for federal crimes which do not exist. We also argue that judges are responsible to obey the requirements of Deuteronomy 1:17, to judge impartially, but they are not responsible for the entire criminal justice system.
Article Discusses CLDEF Brief Filed For Former Attorney General Ed Meese Supporting Gen. Flynn
The article begins: ” Edwin Meese, former attorney general under President Ronald Reagan, filed his own brief along with the Conservative Legal Defense and Education Fund in support of Flynn. The conservatives’ brief highlights an indelible moment between Flynn and Sullivan in 2018, when the judge said to the defendant in open court, “Arguably, you sold your country out.” Meese argued that the motion to dismiss was unusual, but not extraordinary, and that it is Attorney General William Barr’s responsibility to “terminate a baseless prosecution in the interest of justice.”
CLDEF Files Comments Opposing FDA increasing Regulation of Homeopathy
CLDEF’s Center for Medical Freedom joined with The Senior Citizens League to oppose the FDA’s latest proposal to impose new controls over homeopathy. The FDA has statutory authority to regulate pharmaceutical “drugs,” but homeopathic remedies are not drugs. Homeopathy is a highly effective, low cost, and no-side-effect alternative method of stimulating the body to cure itself. Homeopathy has been used world wide for two centuries, and is currently being successfully used by millions of Americans, and increasing numbers of senior citizens.
