9th Circuit ends California’s unconstitutional gun magazine ban

At long last, the gun owners of California have regained their 2nd Amendment rights.

It was a surprising ruling from the often-liberal 9th circuit, but its true: the court struck down California’s ban on magazines which hold more than 10 bullets.

CBS Bay Area reports:

“Even well-intentioned laws must pass constitutional muster,” appellate Judge Kenneth Lee wrote for the panel’s majority. California’s ban on magazines holding more than 10 bullets “strikes at the core of the Second Amendment — the right to armed self-defense.”

He noted that California passed the law “in the wake of heart-wrenching and highly publicized mass shootings,” but said that isn’t enough to justify a ban whose scope “is so sweeping that half of all magazines in America are now unlawful to own in California.”

We differ from Judge Lee on whether the ban was well-intentioned, but we wholeheartedly agree with the decision.

It is your rights to own and keep your arms. They have no right to pull the stuff they try. I am glad you Californians have someone who finally stands for the OATH they swore to uphold to protect the Constitution that is awesome. Now you all need to stand together and take back your state from the tyrants in the Democratic Party vote them all out they don’t care what you may need they are in you city’s to ruin them they care nothing about the people. So vote out all the tyrants take back you beautiful state of California. That is the only way.

About time someone in the justice department stands up to the OATH they took to uphold the Constitution of the United States Of America. We need more like them. As we know the DOJ has been corrupt for far too long. Keep up the good work for keeping our rights safe from the tyrants. That hold the Democratic Party. We The People elect these criminals and tyrants now seeing the hate they bring it is time to get our voices heard and vote out all tyrants and see they get the punishment they deserve. Trump 2020 all the way.

This is one of the Best Judgements of 2020, and from the 9th Court, it’s astounding. I’m sure Cali will appeal to SCOTUS, but since SCOTUS nixed hearing any 2nd Amendment cases this year, it means the 9ths ruling will stand (as it should). Every High Capacity Ban is on the chopping block now.

What a surprise, 9th circuit court. I’am still glad I moved out of calif. and live in Texas. Just wished those idiots when they move here would wake up and vote right before they turn this great state into another calif.

Some people from California are purposely moving to Conservative states in order to try to turn them into Liberal leaning states.
I recently moved from California to Southern Utah after immigrating to the US, California, many years ago. I love the state, the climate, all the beautiful types of country to see there but the Liberals have ruined it. BTW “progressives” is a subjective word and that’s why I refuse to call them that as I don’t regard their policies nor their beliefs progressive – they are pointing us backwards, racially, morally and financially. I moved to St George because the winters aren’t too bad, and unfortunately, most of the Californians I’ve met here are Democrats and determined to stop Utah from being so Conservative, they are afraid of the Mormons!

I live in Northern California and would love to get out of this State. My wife and I are handicapped, 65 years old, married for 46 years with no family. How’s the fishing and hunting in Utah?

The Constitution would have been rejected if the first ten amendments had not been adopted. Personal beliefs and responsibilities are essential to individual rights independent of the responsibilities and duties of the government to its citizens.

New Jersey is INSANE> It’s impossible to get a hand gun permit unless you can prove you need one. Rifles are very difficult. about the only thing you can get in that CORRUPT GREEDY STATE is a shotgun and that could take months. I moved to Tennessee and was able to get a handgun one the day i got my permanent Drivers License. Leaving NJ was one of the best things i ever did. I bought a brand new house on 2 1/2 acres for $152000 and my taxes are $740 a year. YOU SHOULD MOVE! But don’t you dare move to TN and keep voting Democrat.

Everything else is broken in California too! 9th Circuit needs to tell the governor, the mayors and the Dem politicians to get a brain and a heart and learn how to really govern and legislate. the people of California that they should be thinking of and caring for are those legally there and living like humans not vagrants and those that have crossed illegally and ignoring the proper ways of becoming decent law abiding citizens. Letting criminals out of jail for the virus was a mistake because they are not better protected out of jail but they do continue to break laws and harm innocent Californians. The governors and mayors and prosecutors have been fools!

I truly enjoy your articles but can you please come up with some better headlines for your emails? Everything is always “Breaking” or “Shocking” or someone “ending it”. Surely you can come up with something better that would make me want to actually read the articles!! Take this one for example: “BREAKING: Federal Judge ENDS It – Trump Is Smiling ” ….. why not just use the actual article headline: “9th Circuit ends California’s unconstitutional gun magazine ban”. I would be much more inclined to read the latter. The former headline just sounds like something from a trashy tabloid. Here are some examples that make me want to just delete the email before ever reading the article:
Donald Trump ENDS IT Abruptly – He’s Had ENOUGH
Tucker Carlson ENDS IT – Media In Shock
BREAKING: Nancy Pelosi Says “NO” – Ends It Abruptly
JUST IN: Top Republican ENDS IT Abruptly – GOP In Shock
JUST IN: Shock INDICTMENT Announcement – Bill Barr STRIKES
BREAKING: Shock Joe Biden News – His Cancer….
BREAKING: Shock FIRING Bombshell – Tucker Carlson Just…
BREAKING: Shock Don Jr. Announcement – Positive Test ROCKS…
BREAKING: Trump Shocks EVERYONE – Kanye West Is…
BREAKING: Bill Barr RESIGNATION Shocker – Oh My Gosh
BREAKING: White House SHOCKER – Dr. Fauci Has Been…
BREAKING: Shock Resignation Announcement – Media Stunned
BREAKING: Shock Trump HEALTH Announcement – Physician Reveals.
Your articles are great but your email headlines suck lemons and make you sound like the Enquirer. Please just use the actual article headlines instead.

They need to build a wall around California to keep them in and stop the contamination for the rest of us who are awake. They hate what they created there yet spread the Californicate disease where ever they move to. And by the way, your Escalade, isn’t as impressive as you think it is. You stick out like a sore thumb.

My sentiments exactly. I was speaking with a customer on the phone and he was bragging about living in Colorado, I didn’t mentioned that I had lived in the Denver area for several years, and I noted that the places I talked about he had never heard of. Prior to my phone I saw his profile picture for his email account and it looked like he was shown standing in the Pacific Ocean! I asked him and he admitted that he was from Cali. He finally admitted he had only lived in Colo for 2 months! NOT ONLY ARE THE CALI FRUITS AND NUTS INFECTING OTHER STATES, THEY ARE TRYING TO HIDE WHERE THEY CAME FROM! SO, BEWARE THE CALI INFECTION! THEY KNOW THEY ARE NOT WELCOME! I moved to Colo from Michigan, grew up hunting and fishing, and even I was not welcomed with open arms. What was popular when I lived there were “COLORADO NATIVE” bumper stickers. I, of course, boasted a “COLORADO ALIEN” bumper sticker! I was at least honest about my heritage!

We need to put everyone that wants to take our Constitution writers away and put them on a 747 or bigger with a one way ticket and send them to Russia, or China, or any Muslim countries and see how far they would get doing the same acts their doing in Our Great America
The U.S.A.!
