A federal appeals court ruled unanimously on Wednesday that Sunnyvale can enforce its ban on large-capacity gun magazines. The decision states that city officials did not violate the Second Amendment by adopting the ban, and further opens the door for other cities to pass similar regulations. Meanwhile, more handguns were sold in California in 2014 than during any other year on record, according to recently released figures from the state Department of Justice. We look at impact of the ruling and whether other communities may take Sunnyvale's lead.
