California judge strikes down standard capacity magazine ban

Power LineYesterday, Judge Roger Benitez of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California handed down an 86-page decision holding that California’s ban on magazines that contain more than ten rounds violates the Second Amendment. Judge Benitez’s decision is closely reasoned and unsparing in its dismantling of the feeble evidentiary case made on behalf of the state. It is premised largely on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in District of Columbia v. Heller.

This will likely end up at the Supreme Court itself. 9th Circuit will strike it down, almost inevitably. The Supreme Court, with new presumably pro-gun members, will see the district court opinion pointing out how California's laws are in direct conflict with Heller.
