Courts Refuse to Stay Sunnyvale Ban on Magazines of More Than 10 Rounds

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Sunnyvale voters, misled by falsehoods and inflamed left-wing rhetoric concerning standard ammunition magazines, approved Measure C which made the possession of magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.  In an attempt to delay implementation of the law until challenges are heard in court, the NRA filed a request with the U.S. District court.

Judge Whyte denied the request saying there would be virtually no bearing on the Second Amendment.  A further appeal to the U.S. Supreme court for an emergency stay was denied by Justice Anthony Kennedy.  Kennedy did not issue and comment on the denial.

The NRA will be filing a challenge to the law, known as Measure C, with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.  They have vowed to take it to the Supreme Court, if necessary.  A similar law passed in San Francisco has also been challenged, and a stay has also been denied in that case, too.

Measure C has no grandfather clause, so all magazines with capacities greater than 10 rounds must be either turned in to the police for destruction or taken out of the city.  We will have to see if Sunnyvale residents follow the citizens of other areas that have refused to turn in such magazines.
