    In the case of Hanson v. District of Columbia, in the District Court of the District of Columbia, on April 20, 2023, federal Judge Rudolf Contreras issued an opinion holding standard capacity magazines which hold more than ten rounds of ammunition are not protected under the rights which the Second Amendment was written to protect.

  • Federal judge declares "large capacity" magazines not protected by the Second Amendment

    A U.S. District Judge in Washington, D.C. has declined to grant an injunction against the city’s ban on “large capacity” magazines, ruling that while magazines in general are “arms” protected by the Second Amendment, LCMs fall outside of the scope of the amendment because they’re a “poor fit” for self-defense purposes. The challenge to the District’s magazine ban, known as Hanson v. D.C., involves four legal gun owners from D.C. who all say that they would possess and carry “large capacity” magazines in their firearms if they weren’t banned by law. The District’s prohibition comes complete with a potential three-year...

    While speaking to the National Association of Counties Tuesday, President Biden pushed for more gun control and said there is “no rationale…for magazines that hold 50, 70 bullets.” He did not say what he believes to be a rational magazine capacity nor did he note whether 70-round magazines exist. Biden said, “I’m going to say something that’s always controversial, but there is no rationale for assault weapons and magazines that hold 50, 70 bullets.”

    Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) signed legislation Wednesday night banning commonly owned semiautomatic rifles and magazines which Democrats consider “high capacity.” The law took effect immediately with Pritzker’s signature. It allows those who already own the now-banned firearms to retain them, but requires that the owners register the guns with the Illinois State Police. Pritzker’s office released a statement upon his signing of the bill. It said, in part, “The new law also requires existing owners of semi-automatic rifles to register their ownership, ensuring that law enforcement knows the location of these weapons of war and who to hold accountable if...

    An Oregon judge suspended the state's voter-approved gun control measure hours after a federal court judge agreed that a ban on the sale and transfer of high-capacity magazines could soon take effect. The Tuesday ruling from Harney County Judge Robert Raschio essentially puts the Thursday implementation of Measure 114 on hold. However, that could be a short-term decision after Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum pledged to take the matter to the state Supreme Court. "What's next? We will petition to the Oregon Supreme Court ASAP, seeking to align the result in our state courts with the federal court's well-reasoned and...

    A former attorney for Donald Trump condemned a decision by an appeals court to allow the Justice Department to continue examining classified materials seized during the Mar-a-Lago raid in August, alleging court documents contained a “huge revelation” which backed up Trump’s case. According to CNN, Wednesday’s unanimous ruling by a three-judge panel on the 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals overruled a trial judge who had blocked federal investigators from continuing to examine documents marked as classified. Two of the judges on the panel had been nominated by Trump. Subscribe Log In Equipping Readers with The Truth Sunday, September 25,...

    Many people on the right are seeking ways to escape the dumpster fire of Twitter. Since it’s Screen-Free Week, this seems a good time to ponder strategies for reducing our consumption of the propaganda and biased garbage proliferated by leftist corporate media and disseminated on social media. While I still read publications like the Washington Post regularly, I really do try to limit my consumption of such outlets for my mental and emotional health. Actually, my personal rule applies to all digital media, regardless of political affiliation. That’s for good reason, given the ever-growing evidence of how digital media affects...

    On 28 August 2020, Attorney General Becerra of California petitioned the Ninth Circuit to review the case of Duncan v. Becerra. The review would be of the three-judge panel which held the California ban on magazines that hold over 10 rounds of ammunition to be unconstitutional. From the Petition for En Banc: 1 INTRODUCTION AND RULE 35 STATEMENTCalifornia respectfully petitions for rehearing en banc of the panel’s decision, which invalidates a state law restricting large-capacity magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition (LCMs). California voters adopted the current LCM law in response to a spate of mass...

    Teen Vogue is really pushing to indoctrinate young people into the Marxist designs of the Black Lives Matter movement. Forget fashion, it’s about toppling our capitalism-worshipping bourgeoisie. The magazine has apparently dropped its mission as a purveyor of style tips to young people and adopted one of destroying capitalism, abolishing the police, and – no joke – advocating actual tenets of Anarchism. Just take a look at a few of the recent politically-charged headlines from the teeny bopper mag, and you might be shocked at what they’re trying to get your kids to embrace for radical societal change.

    An article at the Daily Signal implodes the lies women have been told for decades in the media — specifically, in women's magazines. Sue Ellen Browder, a former longtime Cosmopolitan writer, 'admits' she spent 20 years pulling the wool over women's eyes by telling them marriage and babies hold women back and that sexual liberation is the true path to fulfillment. For decades now, they've been teaching young women in article after article, image after image, fake story after fake story all the wrong things about men, women, sex, love, marriage — and even America. The propaganda they spread is...

    Concord, NH – Presidential hopeful Joe Biden demonstrated his lack of basic firearms knowledge yet again on Friday, when he declared that citizens should not be able to possess “a magazine with 100 clips in it.” Biden’s latest baffling comment came during a campaign stop in New Hampshire. “I believe in the Second Amendment, but nobody says you can have a round – a magazine with 100 clips in it!” he told the cheering crowd. “100 b-bullets in it,” he stammered a second later, recognizing his mistake. Understanding basic firearms knowledge has been a struggle for Biden in the past....

    The Second Amendment covers magazines holding more than 10 rounds, U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez says, because they are commonly used for lawful purposes. On Friday evening, a federal judge in San Diego blocked enforcement of California's ban on magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, deeming it inconsistent with the Second Amendment right to keep arms for self-defense. U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez concluded that "California's law prohibiting acquisition and possession of magazines able to hold any more than 10 rounds places a severe restriction on the core right of self-defense of the home such that it amounts to...
  • Breaking! Federal Court Finds California Magazine Ban Violates the Second Amendment

    In one of the strongest judicial statements in favor of the Second Amendment to date, Judge Roger T. Benitez of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California determined on Friday that California’s ban on commonly possessed firearm magazines violates the Second Amendment. The case is Duncan v. Becerra. The NRA-supported case had already been up to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on the question of whether the law’s enforcement should be suspended during proceedings on its constitutionality. Last July, a three judge panel of the Ninth Circuit upheld Judge Benitez’s suspension of enforcement...

    Unconstitutional: Whenever we see the Left moving to implement a new rule or law governing the use, handling, or ownership of firearms we are reminded of the very simple language of the Second Amendment, which reads in full: A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. Liberal and conservative scholars and lawmakers have debated the meaning of “militia” and whether or not the founders meant that the Second Amendment applied only to organized state military forces. But others have noted that based...
