June 30, 2014: Colorado’s magazine capacity restrictions and universal background laws are constitutional according to U.S. District Judge Marcia Krieger. In a 50-page ruling handed down on Thursday, the judge held that these laws did not infringe the Second Amendment rights of Colorado citizens. In upholding the laws, the judge made clear that it was not her place “to determine the wisdom or workability of legislation,” and that laws which are “foolish, ineffective or cumbersome to enforce” may still be constitutional. Echoing these thoughts, the Colorado Attorney General stated that his office never claimed that the laws “are good, wise or sound policy.” The Colorado State Shooting Association, one of the plaintiffs in the action, has said that it will likely appeal the case to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit.
