Pro-2nd Amendment Organization Sues Washington State For Banning “Assault Weapons”

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.7

On Tuesday Democratic Washington Gov. Jay Inslee signed HB 1240 into law banning “assault weapons,” saying, “No one needs an AR-15.” Immediately following, the Second Amendment Foundation filed a lawsuit against the state.  The organization’s founder and executive vice president Alan Gottlieb said, “…the state has criminalized a common and important means of self-defense, the modern semiautomatic rifle. The state has put politics ahead of constitutional rights and is penalizing law-abiding citizens while this legislation does nothing to arrest and prosecute criminals who misuse firearms in defiance of all existing gun control laws. It is absurd.”
