California’s AG: Gun Owners Who Have ‘High Capacity’ Magazines Are Going To…

Beth Baumann
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra (D) is one of the people pushing to keep “high capacity” magazines, anything that holds over 10 rounds, illegal in the Golden State. For one week, Californians had the opportunity to get their hands on these magazines because of a court ruling that overturned the state’s ban. One week later, the same judge issued a stay, which meant the ban went back into effect while the lawsuit, Duncan v. Becerra, was settled in court. Any magazines obtained during that week-long period were legal.

Although it’s impossible to know exactly how many “high capacity” magazines were sold during that week, we have a few pieces of evidence that show it was in the millions. Gun stores and ranges couldn’t keep the magazines in stock. In fact, some were even having to put limits on the number of magazines a person could buy at one time just to try to keep them in stock for a short period of time.

“Everything was all sold out. I basically took whatever I could get,” Chris Puehse, the owner of Foothill Ammo in Shingle Springs, east of Sacramento, told the Daily Mail“People loved it. It was like we were out of prison and were not treated like bastard stepchildren of the country anymore.”
