Multiple Attorneys General and Gun Control Groups File Amicus Briefs in Duncan Magazine Case
September 10, 2020- Multiple States Attorney Generals and Gun Control Groups Seek to Influence the Ninth Circuit Consideration of En Banc Review
Don’t think that this case is over. Not by a longshot.
Just this week Attorney Generals from some of the most liberal gun-control states answered the call to file “friend of the court” briefs in the Duncan v. Becerra case which challenges California’s magazine capacity laws. The purpose of this brief and additional briefs from gun control groups like Brady, Gays Against Guns, Gifford’s, and physicians groups is meant to convince the Ninth Circuit to take up the case in an en banc hearing.
Remember we won at the lower court and in the initial Ninth Circuit panel, but they do not want to accept the sound constitutional analysis from both of these courts.
These public officials and groups claim that states have the authority to enact these types of restrictions in the name of “public safety” and that both courts have made grave errors in finding in favor of gun owners.
We understand that they may not like the Constitution, but that does not mean that they get to skirt around it in the name of “public safety” when the courts found that these laws do nothing to improve public safety are severely hinder the constitutional rights of the people.
These groups are attempting to influence the Ninth Circuit to take up the en banc review and get a ruling that favors their agenda. CRPA is willing to fight this battle all the way to the Supreme Court because your rights matter and because we know that sound constitutional analysis wins the day.
