[…] Jacob’s reporting a lawsuit is in the works by NYSRPA and NRA. I do hope this is a carefully considered lawsuit that asks narrow questions rather than broad questions. I’ve been wary of taking assault weapons cases forward, but a) New York’s is pretty draconian, and b) circumstances have largely forced this issue. Someone is going to take cases forward, and I’d rather it be with responsible plaintiffs and not a defense attorney taking bad cases with bad plaintiffs because someone got busted with a gun that had more than 7 rounds in it. Will the federal courts help the good people of New York? I’d be a liar if I told you I think the odds are better than not that they uphold the law. What will the Supreme Court do beyond that? I wouldn’t hazard a guess, because by the time any case gets there, we could be looking at a different court. […]
Read the statement at the NRA site that mentions the possibility of a lawsuit and was not comforted by it. It seems wishy-washy at best. I’ve seen others forming a class action suit here in NY. Obviously there are the petitions. What out of this stands a chance and what is a waste of time? … and why?
There’s no NRA lawsuit. This was leaked out to stop massive emails and calls to NRA/NYSRPA. If you recall, the injunction was set for Tuesday / Wednesday the latest per NYSRPA/NRA. They since removed that from the website.
