"The 7-4 decision by the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit says that the state's restriction on the size of magazines that may be used with firearms only minimally interferes with the right to self-defense, and there is no evidence that anyone was unable to defend their home and family due to the lack of high-capacity magazines.

The court noted that in the past 50 years, high-capacity magazines have been used in about three-quarters of gun massacres with 10 or more deaths and in 100% of gun massacres with 20 or more deaths.

The judges added that more than twice as many people have been killed or injured in mass shootings that involved a high-capacity magazine compared to mass shootings that involved a smaller-capacity magazine."

I see there's no argument here about this Appeals Court decision, so I'll just assume everyone agrees with it......

But how will the next rightwing incel mow down dozens of innocent schoolchildren if this ban remains in place?

It's not the guns. I want my right to carry anything,left intact. The Second amendment is so vital to our way of Life. Boazo.

a SUV

Ironically, it's harder to get a driver's license than it is to purchase a gun. And it's exceedingly difficult to drive an SUV inside a school building so i don't see how that even applies to what i'm talking about.

You don't have that right now.

The idea that some guns and their parts can't be regulated is just a meme.

and this will continue up to the SC and probably lose, because the 2A isn't about Self Defense.

2.5 hour drive from Sacramento to Reno. If somebody wants one they'd just go buy one. No BG checks for accessories or ammo.

What part of "Well REGULATED Militia" don't these ---------- boofs understand?

Just like you can't buy a machine gun or a bump stock.
