SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A judge has upheld San Francisco suburban city's ban on gun magazines that can hold more than 10 bullets, the second similar ruling from a federal court in less than a month.

U.S. District Judge Ron Whyte in San Jose, Calif., said Wednesday that Sunnyvale's ban on high-capacity magazines doesn't violate Second Amendment rights to own guns for self-defense.

Sunnyvale's ban goes into effect Thursday.

Another federal judge last month upheld San Francisco's high-capacity magazine ban on similar grounds.

The National Rifle Association filed lawsuits in both cities to overturn the bans, arguing they violate a seminal 2008 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that said every law-abiding citizen has a right to own a gun inside their homes for self-defense purposes.

NRA lawyer Chuck Michel said he would appeal both decisions.

Start working at home with Google! Just work for few hours and have more time with friends and family. I earn up to $500 per week. It's a great work at home opportunity. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. Linked here Pow6.com
