On April 23,2021 a federal judge in San Diego enjoined California from mandating background checks for ammunition purchases. The preliminary injunction removes the requirement for a background check of anyone who wants to purchase ammunition.
Unfortunately, the 9th Circuit has put a hold on that injunction, and we are back to the background check rules. Let's hope the 9th Circuit finally get's it's head on straight and rules in favor of the Constitution.
However, on Friday, August 14th, 2021 the Ninth Circuit ruled on high capacity magazines.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — 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.”
It didn't take long for the full panel of 9 justices of the 9th Circuit to jump into the fire and overturn the three judge panel. Therefore, we are back to the high capacity magazine limits and there is ow a chance that the court may be able to rule on the AR-15 issue again. Time to contact your representatives and urge them to use common sense in all gun legislation with respect to the Second Amendment.
