SCOTUS Reverses and Remands Two NRA-ILA Backed Magazine Cases
One week after our landmark victory in NYSRPA v. Bruen, the Supreme Court issued orders in two other NRA-ILA backed cases. Those cases, ANJRPC v. Bruck and Duncan v. Bonta, challenge New Jersey and California laws that ban magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition.
The Third and Ninth Circuits, over dissents, upheld the bans by balancing the state governments’ safety interests with the restriction on the right to keep and bear arms. And both cases were appealed to the Supreme Court. Today, the Court vacated and remanded both cases back to the lower courts to rehear them and to apply the text-and-history test that it adopted in Bruen—not the interest-balancing tests that the courts applied previously. This is a good result that effectively gives us a second and better shot at winning the cases.
