9th Circuit Court ends California’s ban on high capacity magazines!

 I logged onto Facebook today and saw a post on one of the citizen defense groups that the 9th Circuit Court has ended the ban on high capacity magazines in CA.  I thought it was relating to older articles or that it was a troll post, but when I searched on it via Google, the below showed:

The article I’m reading was published by the San Diego Union Tribune.  

An excerpt:

A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday threw out California’s ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines, saying the law violates the U.S. Constitution’s protection of the right to bear firearms.

“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.”
