BREAKING: Calif. DOJ Issues “High-Capacity” Magazine Ban Regulations

Under the new law, gun owners have six months to dispose of or permanently alter their large-capacity magazines.…/calif-doj-issues-high-ca…/…


At 8:52 a.m this morning, we received from the California Department of Justice new “emergency” regulations on “large-capacity” (so-called “high-capacity”) firearm magazines.
  1. Notice of Proposed Emergency Action (12/15/16)
  2. Text of Regulations
  3. Finding of Emergency
  4. Large-Capacity Magazine Permit Application (adopt)
  5. Large-Capacity Magazine Report (adopt)
  6. STD 399 Economic and Fiscal Impact Statement
  7. Large-Capacity Magazine Permit Application (repeal)
As stated in the Notice (link above):
Under the new law, gun owners have six months to dispose of or permanently alter their large-capacity magazines. Pursuant to Penal Code section 32310, subdivision (c), a person who legally possesses a large-capacity magazine shall dispose of that magazine by any of the following means prior to July 1, 2017: (1) remove the large-capacity magazine from the state; (2) sell the large-capacity magazine to a licensed firearms dealer; (3) destroy the large-capacity magazine; or (4) surrender the large-capacity magazine to a law enforcement agency for destruction.
Alternatively, gun owners may permanently alter large-capacity magazines by reducing their ammunition capacity so that it no longer meets the definition of a “large-capacity magazine.” [ ] By providing this information to the public in a timely manner, through the emergency process, the Department will avert serious harm to public peace, health, safety, or general welfare.
We will have further analysis on this development soon. In the meantime, please take our short magazine ban poll and let us know where you stand on this outrageous infringement of Second Amendment rights:
