Local Bans on High-Capacity Magazines Draw Lawsuits from NRA

Explore:  Firearms Gun Laws NRA

With federal gun legislation post-Sandy Hook off the table for the foreseeable future, The Sacramento Bee More Confusion Over the Right to Bear Armsreports that two local governments in California have turned to enacting their own local gun control measures banning ownership of high-capacity magazines. While neither city can report any compliance with the surrender provision of their respective laws, they can report lawsuits by the National Rifle Association challenging the validity of the bans. With California’s strict approach to gun control coming under fire (see BB&K Police Bulletin on Peruta concealed carry case and BBKnowledge.com 3/4/14 blog post and 2/28/14 blog post), the state of local regulation remains very much in flux.
