In an earlier article we had made the announcement that a Federal judge had ruled Californias magazine ban Unconstitutional and not enforceable by law enforcement. This ruling was a HUGE 2A victory for gun owners and shitheads stuck behind enemy lines and essentially allowed them to purchase and possess their High capacity magazines! Well it would appear that the window for California gun owners to purchase any magazine holding over 10 rounds is closing thanks to a motion to stay the court ruling.
The Motion filed by the California Department of Justice aims to stay the court ruling that ruled Californias Ban on Standard capacity magazines Unconstitutional. The ruling allowed for California residents to purchase and possess high capacity magazines.
The announcement was posted to Facebook by Chuck Michel, one of the attorneys in the suit.
The key part of the motion reads
“Defendant respectfully requests that this Court rule on this stay application by April 5, 2019.
To effectively preserve the status quo, and to prevent a sudden influx of largecapacity magazines (LCMs) into the State of California (the “State”), Defendant
respectfully requests that the Court issue an immediate, temporary stay pending its ruling on the application for a stay pending appeal. Even if this Court, or the Ninth
Circuit, ultimately issues a stay pending appeal, the State will suffer irreparable injury if LCMs are permitted to flow into the State in the interim. Defendant
respectfully requests that such a temporary stay be issued by no later than April 2, 2019.”
There may be some hope though as FoxNews has just reported that Republican-appointed judges will soon occupy nearly half the seats on the left-leaning 9th Circuit Court of Appeals — dealing a setback to progressive legal advocates who have long seen the court as a safe bet for favorable rulings.
This motion shows that the court will rule on the stay by Friday April 5th. Which means after Thursday retailers will not be able to ship magazines into California.
If you are stuck behind enemy lines we highly suggest you make your purchases before close of business Thursday!
