California Lawmakers Send Defiant Message to NRA After Taking Major Action on Gun Control

It wasn’t immediately clear if the NRA planned to fight the magazine ban via the legal system.

Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously on Tuesday to make it illegal to be in possession of high-capacity ammo magazines, likely setting up a new Second Amendment battle in the Golden State.

After passing the measure with a 12-0 vote, Councilman Paul Krekorian reportedly challenged the National Rifle Association.

“If the NRA wants to sue us over this, bring it on.” he said.

Even though California law already prohibits the manufacturing of high-capacity magazines, lawmakers argued the so-called “loophole” that allowed people to own them has become a public safety issue amid recent shootings.

People who own magazines that hold more than 10 rounds will have 60 days from the time the law goes into effect to destroy, legally sell or surrender them. Violators will face a misdemeanor charge, The Los Angeles Times reported.
