Duncan v. Bonta

admin Firearms Law

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.
