ILA | California Gun Rights Lawsuit: Part II

NRA, along with coalition of gun rights groups, files second lawsuit in California to fight Constitutional violations 

Fairfax, Va. – The National Rifle Association (NRA) joined other individuals, retailers, and gun rights groups in filing a federal lawsuit on Tuesday challenging local policies and enforcement practices that violate Second and Fourteenth Amendment rights. 

“Local governments aren’t promoting safety or “common sense” by targeting gun stores for closure; the closures only serve to disarm law-abiding families while criminals roam free,” said NRA-ILA Executive Director Jason Ouimet. “Because these closures violate our Second Amendment rights when we need them most, the National Rifle Association continues to fight such infringements in court alongside fellow Second Amendment groups.”​​

This is the second lawsuit the gun rights coalition has filed in California after a number of counties deemed firearm and ammuntion stores, as well as indoor and outdoor ranges, “nonessential.” The gun rights groups includes the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), the California Gun Rights Foundation (CGF), and the Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC).  A copy of the lawsuit can be found here.

Individual arms applicants/purchasers and retailers affected by ‘stay-home’ or shutdown orders can report potential civil rights violations to  the NRA-ILA COVID-19 Contact Form.
