    San Fagcisco sues over high-capacity ammo gun 'repair kits' intended to skirt California law

    SAN FRANCISCO, June 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera today filed suit against three gun accessories companies and a gun show promoter for selling disassembled high-capacity magazines in California in violation of a state law that prohibits the sale, manufacture, or import of gun ammunition feeding devices that accept more than 10 rounds. Ostensibly marketed as gun magazine "repair kits" in a barely-disguised attempt to skirt a 14-year-old California gun safety law, the disassembled equipment is intended for easy reassembly by purchasers into complete, fully functional high-capacity magazines that dramatically enhance the lethality of otherwise lawful firearms.

    The State of California enacted its prohibition on the sale, manufacture, or import of large-capacity magazines in 1999, declaring the devices to be public nuisances. Lawmakers at the time expressly grandfathered owners of large-capacity magazines possessed before the prohibition took effect on Jan. 1, 2000, allowing for the lawful repair and maintenance of magazines by licensed dealers and gunsmiths. According to Herrera's complaint filed in San Francisco Superior Court this morning, the defendants' marketing makes clear that their sales of disassembled but brand new magazine parts is an effort to evade California law, wrongly informing consumers in some cases that their products are "100% legal repair/rebuild kits."

    Online vendors named as defendants in Herrera's civil action are: Harbor, Ore.-based 44Mag Distributing LLC, which operates www.44mag.com; Dallas, Texas-based Exile Machine, LLC, which operates www.exilemachine.com; and Pitsburg, Ohio-based Copes Distributing, Inc., which operates Cope's Distributing. Herrera also sued Kaysville, Utah-based B & L Productions, Inc., which hosts gun shows throughout California as "Crossroads of the West Gun Show," including at the Cow Palace in Daly City, Calif., where large-capacity magazine "repair kits" are typically available for purchase.

    yea i hear that california is going to ban metal and plastic cause you might be able to make a mag or other firearm part out of it--

    i think some of the " rajneeise da bhagwan" types have infiltrated the governments of some western towns and state governments since the the osho had to flee the US.

    their probably using our own law making bodies to pave the way for their on leftist state --again---

    So that's the way to go about it. Sue a bunch of companies that don't even reside in Kalifornia because they don't support your stupid little feel good laws. Way to pave the way California. Maybe we should sue San Francisco for making the rest of us look bad... It could be done, but I don't think Kalifornia can afford it... literally.

    The Calif. Dept. of Justice said specifically this is ok; buying 'repair parts'.

    You guy on the left coast (well everyone really) better pay attention, I heard on the radio today they are going to introduce a bill to ban all (yes all) mags over 10 rounds, no grand father clause either.
    Just like the bill were they want to class every rifle with a detachable mag as an assault rifle, even 22lr models

    This is how it starts. The Communists (a.k.a. Democrat Party) start off with "we won't ban your guns". After they get a small concession from gun owners and so called Conservatives they next come calling for a ban on something else (like magazines, types of ammo, accessories, etc.). After they get yet another concession then they come back for more all the while say "we won't ban your guns". Of course they are lying - they are politicians - it's their job to lie, cheat and steal. Never ever give an inch to the Communists. They will never ever be satisfied until we are completely enslaved. It's what they do - they cant be reasoned with - they can' be bargained with. They are traitors to The United States of America and should be treated as such. The Peoples Republik of Kalifornia is a lost cause - sorry guys, if you still live in that cesspool then just be well aware that it will only get worse - much worse. Why do you think that people and busiensses are fleeing the state?

    In the grand scheme of things Calfi should be sued for being a,,, "public nuisance" just from being such a economic impediment to business in general!! Especially when they sue out of state corporations that don't even reside there.

    Hell ,,, there annoying me too every time I try to buy something by mail from there,,,, can I sue them too because there a nuisance ??? How about all the acid rain here in VT that destroyed the fisheries in some small high altitude lakes,, much of that can be traced to cali,,,,

    A PUBLIC NUISANCE ,,,, I Tell Ya !!!! Time after time people living there are just putting out brush fires playing all these lib BS games. Always something there by the looks. Poor ,,,, Jrs, and bellson Have pity on them,,,,
