Lawsuit: Overturn Ban on High-Capacity Magazines
Most people say that these legal challenges are too little, too late, but with the recent appointment of a conservative Supreme Court judge, there is a chance of a legal victory eventually. The problem is that the issue would have to move through several layers of lower courts before it would reach the Supreme Court and that could take years. In the meantime, owners of high-capacity magazines would be in some kind of legal limbo unless a state judge issues some kind of order delaying enactment of the high-capacity ban.
By banning possession—in addition to sales and use—of magazines that were lawfully acquired and are presently lawfully possessed, Section 32310 constitutes a physical appropriation of property without just compensation that is per se unconstitutional.

California Rifle & Pistol Association
A good place for more info on this issue is the CRPA. They are working with the NRA to deal with some of the anti-gun legislation here in California.

YouTube Blocks Adds From Gun & News Channels?
It's definitely a form of censorship and discrimination. Whether it's the government or a private company, squelching free speech should be treated the same.

Judge blocks California's high-capacity magazine ban
This is a big deal! :talk:
A federal judge is blocking a California law set to go into effect Saturday that would have barred gun owners from possessing high-capacity ammunition magazines. San Diego-based U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez said in ruling Thursday that the law banning possession of magazines containing more than 10 bullets would have made criminals of thousands of otherwise law-abiding citizens who now own the magazines.

Federal judge blocks California gun law
Sanity! Amazing! Sanity in California! :thumb2:
"If this injunction does not issue, hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of otherwise law-abiding citizens will have an untenable choice: become an outlaw or dispossess one’s self of lawfully acquired property," Benitez wrote. "That is a choice they should not have to make.”

Federal judge blocks California ban on high-capacity mazaines
In case there is any doubt!
Issuing a temporary injunction, Benitez granted the request of attorneys from the National Rifle Association-affiliated California Rifle & Pistol Association to block the law, according to The Associated Press.

Law set to limit magazine rounds to 10 or under met with opposition
Apparently this was shot before the announcement late yesterday afternoon.

Judge Blocks Law Banning High-Capacity Gun Magazines
What I want to know is if this will simply delay the law going into effect or if it will kill the law completely. I'm hoping for a confirmed kill!

Gun Advocates Hail Injunction For California High-Capacity Ammo Ban
Although I'm against the high-capacity ban, I could see how it could legally go into effect if and only if owners of the banned equipment are fully compensated for the value of their property. This would cost the state hundreds of millions of dollars and could be an insurmountable obstacle to the enactment of this proposition.

District Judge: California ‘High Capacity’ Ban Failed ‘the Simple Test of Heller’
Just because the majority of people in California are fascist idiots who have no respect for our Constitutional right to own guns, doesn't mean that they can vote away our rights!
The California “high capacity” magazine ban was set to go into effect on July 1. But Breitbart News reported that Benitez issued an injunction on June 29 to prevent the ban’s implementation. Although the ban was the result of a majority vote–via the passage of Proposition 63–Benitez indicated that natural rights are not up for a majority vote; that “[The] constitution is a shield from the tyranny of the majority.”
