1 Million+ Magazines Sent To California During Freedom Week

One million magazines. That’s how many standard capacity feeding devices Golden State residents bought during the one week when sales become legal in California recently.

Reportedly a pallet of Magpul P-Mags for America’s favorite rifle, the AR-15, tallies up to 3,000 magazines. So a million magazines represent… a lot of pallets. In simpler terms, many semi-truck loads of freedom pellet dispensers flooded into California to feed the demand from good guys and gals.

The UK Daily Mail reports what the CBS Evening News will not:

More than a million high-capacity ammunition magazines flooded into California during a one-week window created when a federal judge temporarily threw out the state’s ban, gun owners’ groups estimated on Thursday.

Reform groups said the projections are self-serving as gun rights organizations try to make the case that magazines holding more than 10 bullets are so common now that a ban is impractical.

The magazines aren’t tracked. But there are plenty of anecdotal evidence that the floodgates briefly opened when US District Judge Roger Benitez overturned the state’s nearly 20-year-old ban late last month.

The judge halted sales a week later, but ruled that those who bought the magazines can legally own them while the state appeals his ruling.

‘Everything was all sold out. I basically took whatever I could get,’ said Chris Puehse, who owns Foothill Ammo in Shingle Springs, east of Sacramento.

Oh, it gets even better.

He fielded dozens of telephone calls while buyers stacked up 20 deep in his one-man store to buy the hundreds of magazines that arrived in two shipments last week. He had just six left by the time Benitez reinstated the ban last Friday.

‘People loved it. It was like we were out of prison and were not treated like bastard stepchildren of the country anymore,’ he said.

“It was like we were out of prison and were not treated like bastard stepchildren of the country anymore.”

Well said, sir.

At least until they rule against them again and they have to bury them to keep from going to jail.

At least they got a week to stock up.

It definitely pisses all over the "Not in common use" bullshit that the CA gov likes to prattle about.

Amazing… Californians can horde over a million Pmags in a week but won’t bother to write their congressman or show up for a RKBA rally that might help get them back their rights. Gotta love most gun owners logic... :roll:

Californians are too busy dealing with important stuff!

California lawmakers move to ban single-use shampoo bottles from hotels.

Without a doubt the left will blame and future shootings in hicaps, even if it involves a revolver and a stick of gum.

Showing up at rallies and writing to their congressman is what white people of english descent do.
That is not how people of latin origin think or function. Their approach to the problem is entirely different.

Besides in a multi-cultural society with rapidly rising social tensions like we have now, gun control is unavoidable.
