Re: CA: Fed court strikes down 10 round mag limit

I thought the entirety of section 32310 of the California penal code was ruled unconstitutional and applies to everything, not just grandfathered magazines. https://www.nraila.org/articles/20190329/breaking-federal-court-finds-california-magazine-ban-violates-the-second-amendment https://twitter.com...
