9th Circuit ends California ban on high-capacity magazines

SAN DIEGO — A federal appeals court on Friday tossed out California’s ban on high-capacity magazines — those holding 10 or more bullets — finding that it “runs afoul of the Second Amendment.”
“California’s almost blanket ban on LCMs (large-capacity magazines) goes too far in substantially burdening the people’s right to self-defense,” Judge Kenneth K. Lee wrote in the 66-page decision.
Lee also wrote that while he understands the reason behind the law, “even the laudable goal of reducing gun violence must comply with the Constitution.”
