Bianchi v Frosh is JUST an AWB case. They did not challenge the magazine capacity ban.
look at page 19 of the Petition for Cert.
this will have an indirect effect on the magazine ban
However, Duncan v Bonta and ANJRPC will still effect MD.
But keep in mind. MD isn’t required to change their Mag Ban law until a court mandates that the law is invalid and enjoins enforcement.
Until that time, any enforcement or lack of enforcement is pure voluntary on the states part.
When the circuit court rules and issues their opinion and hopefully their mandate. They could invalidate the entire code, in which it would invalidate both the AWB and the mag ban. Or they could invalidate only the AWB. Then enjoin enforcement.
However we won’t know till that happens. If MD refuses to follow SCOTUS it can still be appealed back to SCOTUS and they meaning the SC could then issue the mandate themselves.
The lawyer for Bianchi should be filing motions on or before Monday.
this case could end in the next 90 days, or it could drag out a bit with motions upon motions each allowing a reply and each motion and reply getting 21-30 days each. So could drag out much longer.
So we will see.
hopefully MD goes along voluntarily
