A federal court has struck down California’s ban on high-capacity gun magazines.
The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit said the ban was well-intentioned, but unconstitutional. The ruling said the ban infringes on the Second Amendment right to own firearms.
California banned magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition as a way to help prevent mass shootings. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra’s office is now reviewing the decision to see if it would be able to appeal.
