However, the ruling may not stand long and gun rights activists and gun grabbers alike are gearing up for what will almost certainly turn into a prolonged back and forth battle of ever-escalating judiciaries, looking for a final answer to the question of whether Americans are guaranteed under the Second Amendment to not be refused basic carry rights without just cause by their state.

9th Circuit upholds injunction vs. California ban on mags over 10 Rounds

Published Wednesday, July 18, 2018

The Ninth Circuit upheld the ruling of an appeals court yesterday in a 2-1 decision, though mainly by simply deferring to the lower court's judgement.
