Chatsworth, IL – The Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA) is hailing the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California decision striking down California’s ban on commonly owned firearm magazines.

Proposition 63 in California was passed by voters. One section of the measure banned the possession of firearm magazines that hold more than 10 rounds and Judge Roger T. Benitez ruled that section was a violation of the 2nd Amendment.

“We just recently learned we won the case against the firearm and magazine ban in Deerfield here in Illinois and now we have a ruling striking down the magazine ban in California,” said Richard Pearson, Executive Director of the Illinois State Rifle Association. “These are some major victories for the 2nd Amendment but the fight is far from over.”

Pearson said lawmakers in Illinois are pushing hard to implement firearm and magazine bans of their own. Senate Bill 107 would ban firearms with the capacity to hold magazines with 10 rounds or more.

“What happened in California is most definitely being tried here,” Pearson said. “Illinois lawmakers should take note of this ruling before enacting unconstitutional laws here.”

For more information on 2nd Amendment issues facing Illinois, the Illinois State Rifle Association offers its own website: www.isra.org.
