CCRF contributes to Big 2nd Amendment win as Federal Court Tosses California’s Ban on High Capacity Magazines.


The California Constitutional Rights Foundation with other organizations had filed an Amicus Brief in the appeal of the case Duncan v.s. Beccera.  Virginia Duncan, et al, had originally sued Xavier Beccerra, California’s Attorney General on the basis that California’s High Capacity magazine ban was a violation of 2nd Amendment Rights.   On March 29, 2019 US District Court Judge Roger T. Benitez originally ruled in favor of Virginia Duncan that The large Capacity magazine ban was unconstitutional and a violation of 2nd Amendment Rights. Shortly after, Beccera appealed for the State of California.  Last Friday, August 14, 2020, A 3 Judge Panel, in what may become a landmark ruling, affirmed Judge Benitez original ruling that The large Capacity Magazine Ban was unconstitutional.
