Just Made My Day

 Someone asked me to write an article about a case that I have not been following.  

They cited me: Duncan v. Becerra (9th Cir. 2021) 25 n. 7.

While the en banc appeal has reversed this today, the opening of the deicision was veery nice:

In the wake of heart-wrenching and highly publicized mass shootings, the state of California barred its citizens from owning so-called “large capacity magazines” (LCMs) that hold more than ten rounds of ammunition. But even well-intentioned laws must pass constitutional muster. California’s near-categorical ban of LCMs strikes at the core of the Second Amendment — the right to armed selfdefense. Armed self-defense is a fundamental right rooted in tradition and the text of the Second Amendment. Indeed, from pre-colonial times to today’s post-modern era, the right to defend hearth and home has remained paramount.
