Big news from the Golden State. The National Rifle Association's legal team won a permanent injunction against California's magazine ban.
Here's the decision from MichelLawyers.com. The case is Duncan v. Becarra.
Spoiler: The first three lines from the decision:
Individual liberty and freedom are not outmoded concepts. “The judiciary is – and
is often the only – protector of individual rights that are at the heart of our democracy.” — Senator Ted Kennedy, Senate Hearing on the Nomination of Robert Bork, 1987.1
Folks, pour yourself a beverage and sit down in a comfortable chair and read this decision. Yes, it's 86 pages, but they use really big fonts and you can skip the footnotes. The judge utterly eviscerates every gun control argument. He berates the lazy California Attorney General's office. He crushes gun control. This decision makes a solid foundation for a successful appeal.
Yes, Becarra will almost certainly appeal to the Ninth Circuit. But with the Trump appointments, that's no longer guaranteed to be a circus. And you know what's after the Ninth Circuit…
