NRA challenges San Francisco's ammunition law on behalf of local residents and retired officers

 California Gun Control

A group of retired police officers and four San Francisco residents sued the city in federal court Tuesday to challenge a new law banning high-capacity ammunition magazines.

The lawsuit, sponsored by the National Rifle Association, claims the measure violates the constitutional Second Amendment right to bear arms.

"Limiting magazine capacity for law-abiding citizens to 10 rounds decreases public safety by giving violent criminals an advantage and thus decreasing the likelihood a victim will survive a criminal attack," the suit contends.
