Owens in 2nd Amendmentbatavianewsnotify.
District Federal Judge, Roger Benitez late last June when he blocked one of the most horrific laws yet to damage the 2nd Amendment of the Bill of Rights—even in California dominated by one political party and one political ideology.
A California referendum, potentially making thousands, perhaps millions, felons, was to go into effect July 1, In California gun magazine sales have been limited to ten rounds for the last 17 years but persons already in possession of magazines exceeding this number could keep them as grandfathered in.

Neither condition is met in the case of magazine confiscation. A militia then was the people and an armed populace was understood to be necessary for a free country in two ways: Certainly, when enacted, there was no thought of restricting the type of firearm, amount of ammunition, or where, or who could carry.
So its placement as the second most valued freedom in the Bill of Rights had nothing to do with personal safety, or hunting, these were already assumed.

Imagine how restricting magazines, ammunition and etc. Our Founders did not deny future generations the same means of resisting tyranny that they themselves used. Any referendum or legislation, state or federal, cannot constitutionally undermine or destroy an amendment to the Constitution.
Unfortunately the radicalized, infamous 9th Circuit will likely reverse his decision. If the Supreme Court chooses not to take the case its judgment will stand.

What documents are we analyzing to answer the question? The winds of our atmosphere blowing and liquid water moving tends to knock the sharp edges off fairly quickly of rock and glass particles.
