NRA Backs Challenge to Massachusetts Gun Ban

Support NRA-ILA
Fairfax, Va.— The National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action is proud to announce its financial and legal support of a lawsuit challenging Massachusetts's unconstitutional ban on many of the most popular semi-automatic rifles sold and possessed.
“This lawsuit would not have come to fruition without the financial support of the National Rifle Association,” said Jim Wallace, executive director, Gun Owners' Action League (GOAL).
The lawsuit, brought by Dr. David Worman, GOAL, and others, challenges a 20-year ban on what gun control advocates wrongly refer to as “assault rifles.”
Recently, the state’s attorney general expanded that ban to include even more firearms and standard capacity magazines. Because of this expansion, tens of thousands of firearms that were legally transferred in Massachusetts for the last 20 years are now prohibited.
“Banning firearms because of the way they look or operate is unconstitutional and undermines the fundamental, individual right to self-protection," said Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA's Institute for Legislative Action."
The National Rifle Association supports this lawsuit. On behalf of our five million members, we applaud the brave citizens who stepped forward to oppose this attack on our constitutional rights.” The suit was filed Monday afternoon in the United States District Court of the District of Massachusetts.

Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America's oldest civil rights and sportsmen's group. More than five million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services.

  1. The Government under President Obama wanted our guns very badly. Many people who have looked closely at the massacre at Sandy Hook believe that what was reported was a big fib. The picture at Sandy Hook that makes me question the whole event was that of H. Wayne Carver the coroner for the State of Connecticut at the Sandy Hook Elementary School the day before the event.
