Duncan v. Becerra Update from CRPA President Chuck Michel

CRPA lawyers filed an opposition brief to the state’s appeal of the trial court ruling whereby Judge Benitez blocked enforcement of the ban on possessing 10+ round magazines.
As you know, the ban on importation was blocked for a week, during which time approximately 1 million of the magazines were lawfully purchased in California. The importation ban is now back in effect.
This week a slew of amicus / friend-of-the-court briefs will be filed supporting our position. We have been working with a variety of groups wanting to assist in that effort.
Then the state will be able to file a reply brief.
As these briefs are filed we update the back page showing the case history at HERE.
You can read all of the briefs there.
We are closely watching what the Supreme Court does in the NYSRPA v NYC case, and are hopeful that the Court will give us a ruling (most likely in June 2020) that we can use to file a lot more 2A lawsuits in California.
Thank you for your continued support of this effort, and all the other efforts of NRA and CRPA to fight back and take back our freedoms in California.


  • Thank you for all the hard work you folks do for us in california, instead of fleeing the state I choose to fight and support folks like you. Thanks

  • Keep up the fight! With out your concerted efforts the rest of us would be completely unarmed and fearing the rest of the fanatic Left populace. We appreciate all you guys do on our behalf.

  • The magazines that were purchased during Freedom Week, are we allowed to use them right now or do they have to remain locked away? Every forum you turn to has a variety of responses and most seem to be shooting from the hip! Clarification would be great!

  • Thank you guys for all you do ensuring the constitution is upheld by radicals who want to destroy this country. When the s cons amendment falls the first shall follow and I’m glad to see so many making sure that doesn’t happen. A magazine ban is unconstitutional and the right to preserve ones life is above all others.

  • Thank you for all that you are doing and have done. I’m a proud member of CRPA, and donate when I can. I am currently composing a letter to all the city council members in regards to the bill being proposed by Paul Koretz, (5th district, Los Angeles City Council) banning the possession of “assault rifles” in Los Angeles county.
    Any advice or assistance you can give would be much appreciated. I’m not much of a talker, or writer, but I am a gun owner and an American citizen, so I will do my best. I know you are all very busy, so I get it if you can’t help.
    Thank you,

  • California can attempt to dismantle the 2nd Amendment all it wants. I will never, ever comply with any laws that are counter to the rights clearly defined in the 2nd amendment. I see it now to be my duty as an American first and lawful (though Sacramento’s attempt to make me and fellow firearms owners criminals) to disobey every idiotic law. I will do so from here on secretly, discreetly and consistently.
