Large-capacity gun magazine possession law on pause while Supreme Court petitioned

A federal appeals court has agreed to put on hold a law that makes it illegal to possess a gun magazine holding more than 10 bullets, to see if the U.S. Supreme Court takes up the case.
An en banc panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the law in a 7-4 ruling on Nov. 30. However, gun rights advocates who sued the state over the law in San Diego federal court said they plan to petition the Supreme Court in the case.

The 9th Circuit agreed on Monday to the advocates’ request to stay the possession part of the law for 150 days to allow time for the writ of certiorari to be filed.

If the petition is filed during that period, the stay will be extended until the high court makes a determination on whether it will consider the case.

The state Attorney General’s Office, which is defending the law in court, did not oppose the request.
