Magazine Ban Upheld in 9th Circuit

I’m a little late on this news, because I had originally wanted to read the opinion, but I did not end up finding the time. The magazine restrictions by Sunnyvale, California were upheld in the 9th circuit last week. All these stories are basically the same: a lot of judges hate the Heller decision, because they don’t particularly like the Second Amendment, so they will use any reasoning they can to gut it.

While this case will no doubt be appealed, I’m not certain if I feel comfortable taking a magazine case to the Supreme Court, for fear it’ll lose. I’d rather get more case law first, and at least get lower courts out of the mindset of open resistance to the will of the Supreme Court on the Second Amendment.

  1. That article is misleading (which is not surprising considering it’s Mercury News). The underlying case has not been heard by the 9th Circuit yet. What the 9th Circuit upheld was the denial of an injunction pending appeal (to the 9th).

    1. That’s just pathetically dishonest, wow. And I thought they couldn’t go any lower.

  2. Look, one way or another, there’s going to be a gun or magazine or ammo ban come down the pike, and Americans are going to have to decide if they are going to do like their ancestors and resist such tyranny with armed disobedience, or acquiesce like Frenchmen and surrender all.

    As for me and my family, we will resist.

    1. You completely ignore the middle ground of so-called Irish Democracy: Just ignore the statutory change, and keep on keeping on.
