    Not such good news, especially in comparison to the "May Issue - vs - Shall Issue" ruling.

    Federal judge affirms San Fran's confiscatory magazine ban

    "A federal judge, in response to a lawsuit brought by a veterans police association, sided with San Francisco, affirming the city’s 2013 retroactive ban on magazines that hold more than 10 rounds."

    "The suit, brought by the San Francisco Veteran Police Officers Association (SFPOA) and supported by the NRA, challenged the city’s ban on ‘large capacity magazines’ to include even those considered ‘pre-ban’ under state law."

    No...ex post facto Law shall be passed.
    Art. 1 Sec. 9 Clause 3

    In The Federalist No. 78, Alexander Hamilton noted that "the subjecting of men to punishment for things which, when they were done, were breaches of no law" is among "the favorite and most formidable instruments of tyranny.
    Thomas Jefferson noted in an 1813 "the sentiment that ex post facto laws are against natural right."

    Of course our Supreme Court feels this only pertains to criminal law, not civil.
