Retired SF Police Officers Join NRA Lawsuit Against 'High Capacity' Magazine Ban

Retired SF Police Officers Join NRA Lawsuit Against 'High Capacity' Magazine Ban

Retired San Francisco police officers, a retired Navy master chief, and other city residents have joined the NRA in a lawsuit against the city’s ban on “high capacity” magazines. 

The suit was filed November 20th. 

According to The San Francisco Appeal, the suit contends that “limiting magazine capacity for law-abiding citizens to ten rounds decreases public safety by giving violent criminals an advantage and thus decreasing the likelihood a victim will survive a criminal attack.”

The ban passed on November 8th and “makes it a misdemeanor to possess ammunition magazines carrying more than ten bullets.” It is scheduled to take effect on December 8th. 

Those joining the NRA in the suit include “the San Francisco Veteran Police Officers Association, retired officer Larry Barsette, retired U.S. Navy master chief Arthur Ritchie, and city residents Rainero Granados and Randall Low.” 

City Attorney Dennis Herrera says the ban will get a “vigorous defense,” after which he believes the ban will stand. 

The NRA is seeking an injunction to prevent the law from being implemented.
