Constitutional but foolish.

A federal judge upheld Colorado’s controversial new gun control laws Thursday, ruling that limits to the size of ammunition magazines and requirements for universal background checks are not unconstitutional.
In her 50-page written ruling, U.S. District Chief Judge Marcia Krieger took pains to note that her ruling wasn’t an “opinion as to whether a law is ‘good’ or ‘bad,’ ‘wise’ or ‘unwise,’ ‘sound policy’ or a ‘hastily-considered overreaction,’” but merely a ruling on its constitutionality.
“A law may be constitutional, but nevertheless foolish, ineffective, or cumbersome to enforce,” she wrote.
In her ruling, Krieger wrote that the plaintiffs — which included Colorado sheriffs acting in private capacity, several gun-rights and/or shooting organizations and firearms-parts businesses — could not prove that the ban on magazines that hold more than 15 rounds would prohibit gun owners from adequately defending themselves.
