NY Gun Owners Group Plans to Sue State

A gun owners' group has filed a notice of its intention to sue New York State in attempting to overturn the restrictive gun law passed two weeks ago. 

In a notice filed this week, the New York Rifle & Pistol Association says passage and enforcement violate the constitutional right to bear arms and the right to privacy, and unconstitutionally criminalizes guns and magazines that were previously legal and restricts the ability to do business.

The law bans certain semi-automatic guns and large magazines, requires owners to register within a year any once-legal guns banned under the law's tighter definition of "assault weapons" and outlaws bringing them into New York from elsewhere.
