Major Victory in 4th Circuit

Kolbe v. Hogan (4th Cir. 2016): Ruled that Maryland's ba on magazines above 10 rounds and most semiauto weapons violates Second Amendment and applies strict scrutiny.  Emphasizes these are weapons "in common use" for lawful purposes.
 For perspective, we note that in 2012, the number of AR - and AK-style weapons manufactured and imported into the United States was more than double the number of Ford F-150 trucks sold, the most commonly sold vehicle in the United States.
 A major victory.
