Over gun control legislation NRA-backed Pittsburgh residents sue

Following Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto's signing of four gun control laws on Tuesday, Pittsburgh residents filed a lawsuit with the help of the National Rifle Association (NRA) challenging the interpretation of "large capacity magazines" in one of the laws.
The case in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas is styled Anderson v. City of Pittsburgh. The law being challenged is the ban on the public carry of loaded magazines that have more than 10 bullets to be discharged, calling these magazines "large capacity magazines." The NRA claims that the magazines "come standard with many of the nation's most popular firearms and are commonly used in handguns carried for self-defense."
