Looks like Cali residents get to keep their mags.

    I certainly hope the law is upheld, but it seems reasonable to grant an injunction to give time for it to work its way through the court.

    Dumb freaking law. If liberals would fight for better gun control with some sense, they might actually get somewhere.

    :p

    Seriously though. Ammo mags.
    California government can't force the surrender of high capacity magazines.
    Judge ruled it violated constitutional protections on property rights and the 2nd Amendment.

    But can they cap the capacity on new mags?

    Yep.
    But really. Since possession of them is no longer illegal, a ban on selling new high capacity mags moot. Just get them from out of state.

    Translation for Liberals:

    Magazine= High Capacity Clip
    --- Post Merged, Jun 29, 2017 ---

    That's been in effect for a while. The limit has been 10 rounds max per magazine, or in liberal terms "clip."

    I thought magazine = New Yorker

    I don't own any mags. Like any good liberal, I'm afraid of guns :) But cool beans I guess.

    I'm a lifelong Californian ... and relatively aware politically.

    But I don't recall any law that called for the forceful surrender of high capacity magazines.

    Are you saying there was one?

    There actually is a checkpoint on the 10 heading into Cali, right before you get into Blythe. It's only random though.

    That's an immigration check.
    They just check to see if you're 'murkin or not.

    Haha. It's actually an agricultural inspection site. California is very picky about protecting it's crops.

    Grandfather laws. If I remember correctly there was an assault style weapons ban in Cali during the 1990's. However people who had them fell under the grandfather clause and where able to keep them.

    I haven't been asked about fruits and veggies in over 20 years.
    I remember the fruit fly days.

    The law the judge just stopped was slated to go into effect this Saturday.
    It required anyone who owned a high capacity magazine to dispose of them by either surrendering it to the police (no compensation) or sell it to a non resident by July 1st 2017. It made possession a crime.

    Okay. But without getting too lost in semantics, you used the term, "force to surrender," when nobody is forcibly going to be made to surrender their magazines. The cops aren't going on house-to-house searches, and the fine for possession is as little as $100 per magazine.

    Technicality really.
    When something is suddenly deemed illegal to own, you are pretty much forced to surrender it or become a criminal.
