I've said it before and I'll keep saying it... THIS ^^^ RIGHT HERE...is why folks in Oregon and Washington need to a) be paying VERY close attention to what is going on in California and b) support the legal challenges that come out of California.IP17 will be on the ballot in Nov where we will lose ability to buy standard capacity mags and they will create tons of new hoops to jump through to buy guns (probably all without funding to do it which will mean a huge backlog/ClusterF).
My guess is they will also do an ip18 type assault weapons ban next year. It looks like dark times are looming.
I don't know but I'm guessing it will take years for a challenge to get to the Supreme Court to overturn this BS (if it passes).
EVERYTHING coming to Oregon and Washington already exists in CA. So the good news here is that there's a really good chance that CA has already initiated the legal challenges for you.
The case is Duncan v. Bonta and it challenges the constitutionality of high capacity magazine bans. Bonta is the petty tyrant California Attorney General (fyi). And the case was initially decided in our favor. Judge Roger Benitez wrote an absolutely beautiful and scathing decision...which, of course, was subsequently overturned in an 11 judge en banc hearing by the 9th...just like always.
The "good guys," however, have since filed a Petition for Certiorari, which is a request for judicial review by SCOTUS. This was as of March 1st and the case is sitting en-wait until SCOTUS reviews it...and they're currently closed for the summer so nothing is going to happen for a bit.
However, in light of the recent decision in Bruen, things look particularly good for this case. Judge Benitez's initial decision was in accordance with the judicial review process outlined in Heller and upheld in Bruen. The 9th Disctrict Court's overturning of that decision was based on their typical ridiculous two step evaluation process where the basically make up whatever they need to in order to declare a law constitutional. But there's no way that can be upheld by SCOTUS, given the recent Bruen decision.
What will likely happen is SCOTUS will either a) say outright that Judge Benitez's initial decision will stand or b) SCOTUS will remand the case back to the 9th and tell them to knock off the crap and use the Bruen method.
The point, however, is that case has been going on for years as cases do, but we are a whole lot closer to the end at this point than we are to the beginning. It's not like Oregon has to start from scratch and whatever gets decided in this case should absolute apply to Oregon since all three states are under purview of the 9th. You can follow the case status at the Calguns linky below...as well as the status for several other cases that will likely be relevant to WA and OR.
So please do what you can both in deed and financially to support these cases. Most of them will have a direct impact on what happens in both WA and OR.
