Since the federal court decision last Friday that prevents California from enforcing the “large capacity” magazine procurement and possession ban, Californians have once again been able to legally obtain +10rd magazines.
The orders are flying in, and companies from within California and around the country are stepping up to service California gun owners who have been denied this liberty for two decades, however this window of opportunity can quickly close as the state has every intention of appealing this decision to a higher court to have it stayed. Attorney General Becerra has stated he will appeal it to the 9th Circus if the judge does not stay the decision by 5pm today.
***BREAKING: Judge stays injunction on procurement of large capacity magazines, effective 5pm Friday April 5th. GET THOSE ORDERS IN!!!***
The CEO of one such company which is fulfilling orders, Charles David Wylie, Jr of Palmetto State Armory, has even gone so far as to sign a declaration and agreed to testify on behalf of the plaintiff in the case Duncan v. Becerra should he be called to do so in the event that this case gets appealed, as the state has argued that there is “no evidence” +10rd magazines have been sold to California gun owners.
I, Charles David Wylie, Jr., make this declaration of my own personal knowledge and, if called as a witness, I could and would testify competently to the truth of the matters set forth herein.
I am the President and Chief Executive Officer of Palmetto State Armory, LLC, a limited liability company organized in the State of South Carolina. Palmetto State Armory is a manufacturer and retailer of firearms and firearm accessories, including firearm magazines with a capacity greater than ten (10) rounds.
I am generally aware of an order issued by the United States District Court for the Southern District of California styled as Duncan v. Becerra, Case No.: 3:17-cv-l017-BEN (JLB), Order Granting Plaintiffs’ Motion/or Summary Judgment, Declaring California Penal Code § 32310 Unconstitutional and Enjoining Enforcement (S.D. Cal. March 29,2019) (“Order”).
Since the issuance of the Order, Palmetto State Armory has received, accepted, processed, and shipped orders from thousands of residents of the State of California for firearm magazines with a capacity greater than ten (10) rounds.
There are current estimates of 300,000 to over a million +10rd magazines having been sold to California gun owners in just under a week’s time. Some companies are halting all other orders until the needs of good Californians are met (and there are plenty of us here, we’re just in the political minority).
California gun owners thank all those companies and people who are helping us regain our rights and liberties, one lawsuit at a time, one order at a time. Please take the time to donate to whatever gun rights group you prefer, including the one who made this possible (CRPA), and continue to support the business who stepped up when we needed them.
