Gun industry group sues Conn. over gun law
Quote:HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A national gun industry group on Monday filed the latest lawsuit challenging Connecticut's new wide-ranging gun law, passed in the wake of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation Inc., which is based in Newtown a few miles from Sandy Hook, claims the emergency legislation was illegally passed in April without proper public input, time for adequate review by members of the General Assembly, or a statement of facts explaining why lawmakers needed to bypass the usual legislative process.

"There was no emergency and so there's no statement of facts as to why this is an emergency," Lawrence G. Keane, the foundation's senior vice president and general counsel, told The Associated Press, arguing the public's federal and state constitutional due process rights were therefore violated. "There was truly no emergency other than a political one."

Keane said the foundation wants a U.S. District Court judge to strike down the law as invalid, prohibiting it from being enforced. Many parts of the legislation have already taken effect, such as an expanded ban on guns considered to be assault weapons and a ban on large-capacity ammunition magazines.

"The correct, legally required process was not followed," Keane said.
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
So... is NRA-ILA not actually sending their own lawyers or have no specialists in CT actually on the ground fighting this; it's just NSSF by its lonesome with its couple-million dollar budget?
I remember a while back a story that stated NRA would be providing financial support, etc. for the suit.

Sorry, no link.
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile
