America Needs To Hear Judge’s Words in Pro-High Capacity Magazine Decision


Reported By Ben Marquis | Published April 4, 2019 at 3:51pm

A federal district judge in California recently knocked down that state’s ban on firearm magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition as being an unconstitutional infringement of the Second Amendment. The liberal media hasn’t really said too much about the ramifications of this ruling, and for good reason, as it undermines a major argument put forward by the anti-gun crowd in support of their confiscatory gun control schemes.

NBC News reported U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez struck down the ban on possession of “large capacity magazines” that hold more than 10 rounds, in large part due to the commonality of such ammunition feeding devices. Benitez also slammed the lawmakers who think they know what citizens need to defend themselves and their families or protect their homes and property from common armed criminals.

The judge’s 86-page ruling began by declaring “Individual liberty and freedom are not outmoded concepts,” and compared three stories of home invasions in which a woman used a firearm to defend against her assailants. In two of those cases, the victim ran out of ammunition prior to the end of the criminal assault against them, while in the third case, a woman dressed in only pajamas with a large capacity magazine managed to fend off three attackers because she had the extra ammunition in the large capacity magazine.

Benitez wrote that the woman “held a phone in one hand and took up her pistol in the other and began shooting. She fired numerous shots. She had no place to carry an extra magazine and no way to reload because her left hand held the phone with which she was still trying to call 911. After the shooting was over and two of the armed suspects got away and one lay dead, she did get through to the police.”

California first instituted a ban on so-called large capacity magazines in 2000 but allowed those who already possessed such magazines to keep them. However, the law was changed in 2016 to no longer grandfather those previously possessed magazines. Benitez had issued an injunction in 2017 to block the implementation of that law, which would have required all such magazines be turned in or else risk a felony charge for unlawful possession. The reasoning behind the added confiscation and penalties for possession was to reduce death counts in mass shootings. However, Benitez noted that while incredibly tragic, mass shootings were also “extremely rare,” and the law-abiding citizenry shouldn’t be infringed upon with a “solution” to a relatively small problem.

Citing the prevalence of common crimes versus mass shootings — and the fact that it wholly depends on each individual incident to know how many rounds will be needed to defend oneself — the judge decried the limit of 10 rounds to be a significant burden on the Second Amendment-protected right of all law-abiding Americans to possess “arms” necessary for self-defense. The ruling cited the Supreme Court’s monumental District of Columbia v. Heller decision in 2008, as well as other cases similarly couched on that precedent, which guaranteed the right of Americans to possess “common” arms. Benitez ruled that standard magazines that hold more than 10 rounds fell into the category of being arms in common use. He also gave a nod to the “militia” clause in the Second Amendment later in the ruling by noting that, in the unlikely but still possible event a citizen militia would need to defend the country in the future, they would likely have to do so with firearms and magazines holding more than 10 rounds.

“Constitutional rights stand through time holding fast through the ebb and flow of current controversy. Needing a solution to a current law enforcement difficulty cannot be justification for ignoring the Bill of Rights as bad policy. Bad political ideas cannot be stopped by criminalizing bad political speech,” Benitez wrote.

“Crime waves cannot be broken with warrantless searches and unreasonable seizures. Neither can the government response to a few mad men with guns and ammunition be a law that turns millions of responsible, law-abiding people trying to protect themselves into criminals. Yet, this is the effect of California’s large-capacity magazine law,”he added.

The judge also took on the leftist trope that firearms holding more than 10 rounds were “too lethal” for the average citizen to possess. After noting that all firearms of any capacity are “dangerous” and “lethal,” he followed the faulty logic to conclude that, if the 10-round limit were allowed to stand, it could eventually be reduced by the state to as few as one allowable round — a ridiculous notion that would completely undermine the entire premise of armed self-defense.

Judge Benitez concluded that California’s ban on magazines that hold more than 10 rounds could not survive any level of legal scrutiny, nor was it historically acceptable prohibition, and thus was unconstitutional as it placed an unfair and severe burden on law-abiding citizens.

This judge is exactly right. Nobody knows how many rounds will be necessary to defend against an unknown number of assailants, and arbitrary limits imposed by the state — with criminal liability for non-compliance — only serve to burden law-abiding citizens while having no effect on criminals who are already violating existing laws.

Booker Makes Up NRA Gun Buying ‘Loopholes’ During CNN Townhall


Written by Wes Walker on March 29, 2019

Hey kids, today’s Secret Word is ‘loophole’. Can you count all the times he says it in this clip? Every word he says here is wrong… including ‘and’ and ‘the’.

Who needs to actually ‘know’ any ‘facts’ when you have an audience who hates gun rights and is more than ready to buy any lie you sling at them?

What he lacks in knowledge, he more than makes up for in righteous indignation. And emotion — rather than facts — seems to be the coin of their realm.

It that long ago that AOC who said: “I think that there’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually and semantically correct than about being morally right.”

The ‘morally correct’ position (as they see it) is to oppose gun ownership, lawful or otherwise because they are convinced that gun ownership endangers lives.

Here’s his speech…

The townhall question was “how can we talk about being free when we live in fear of gun violence; what is your plan to ensure our safety?”

He set his sights (so to speak) directly at the ‘evil’ NRA, showing himself as the clown that he is. The only things missing from this over-rehearsed performance were a single glistening tear (like Obama’s) and maybe some jazz hands.

We are going to bring the fight to the NRA who wants to represent corporate gun owners … corporate … gun corporations… uh… manufacturers more than they want to represent the people because this is what they’re doing to Americans. They are defending loopholes, like that loophole that if a man who is convicted of beating his wife he can find a loophole to go out and find a gun and murder her. They are defending not their membership, but loopholes like the loophole that says [voice trembling] that someone on the terrorist no-fly list in our country can still go to a gun show and buy weapons. Somebody who’s convicted of a violent crime can still find a loophole to go and buy a weapon.”

Thanks for that community theatre performance there, Spartacus. But your delivery and content both need some work.

First off, the NRA is not ‘in the pocket’ of manufacturers. They don’t need to be. They are funded by millions of citizens, thank-you very much. It’s called a ‘grass-roots’ movement. Democrats used to pretend to care about such things.

The NRA is doing work that no liberal will do — they are defending the Constitution as written.

If you look carefully at the American founding documents, you might notice there is this thing called the Bill Of Rights. On that document, you will find a list of enumerated points that are pretty important to the American system of government, including a particular phrase on there that says ‘shall not be infringed’.

The NRA (and similar groups) are standing up against morons like Booker who don’t think American citizens can or should be trusted with such rights. They also think that teens too young to walk into an R-rated film should be entrusted with the right to vote… but that’s a subject for another day.

The fact that Leftist activists are putting the squeeze on gun manufacturers as a way of making lawful gun ownership more difficult means that defending gun manufacturers is part of protecting the right to gun ownership.

Don’t think we haven’t noticed AOC gleefully bullying banks into who and what they can lend money for: Occasional-Cortex Wants YOUR Gun – She’s Cool With CONFISCATION or how she’s already seen how that power relates directly to the battle over gun ownership. “Not everything has to be done through legislation explicitly,” Ocasio-Cortez

But Booker is picking a fight with NRA’s advocacy. Let’s look at the ‘Loopholes’ he’s talking about.

Man convicted of beating his wife can find a loophole to go out and find a gun and murder her.

If you are registered as a felon, you cannot legally buy a gun.

What gun advocates want is precisely the opposite. They want the woman facing a threat of violence to have the right to own a gun for her own protection without an unreasonable waiting period that further endangers her safety, something gun-grabbers directly oppose.

Let’s look at the terrorist no-fly list.

Have there been any problems with that list? Has the ACLU railed against it as being unconstitutional? Have people been wrongly barred from travel?

A Muslim family of 11 from the UK was barred from flying to Disney because of a no-fly list.

Two days after the family was stopped from boarding their flight, another British traveller, Ajmal Masroor, an imam and lecturer based in London, was turned away from boarding a flight to New York.

“USA has the right to issue and revoke visa – I fully understand that,” Masroor wrote in a Facebook post. “However not forwarding any reasons infuriates ordinary people. It does not win the hearts and minds of people, it turns them off. I am amazed how irrational these processes are but does USA care about what you and I think? I don’t think so!”
Source: Guardian

Spartacus would be outraged by those people being barred from flying — but not American citizens being stripped of their Second Amendment rights without due process, without their knowledge, and without any recourse of having those rights restored if they had been wrongly stripped of him.

Someone convicted of a violent crime can buy a weapon?

If you mean the lawful purchase of a firearm, (as opposed to a machete or a bat) you’re wrong. But we’re not expecting serious answers about gun safety from the party that objected ICE being notified if an illegal alien tried to purchase a firearm, are we?

Even Sutherland Springs — the killer was legally disqualified from owning guns, but the government screwed up the paperwork and he wasn’t added to the FBI database. The NRA actually WANTS these problems fixed, and violent felons stopped from purchasing firearms.

For a detailed look at the loopholes themselves, you can check out The Federalist, which gave it the dragging it deserved.
