NRA Files Lawsuit To Block New Florida Gun Law

When the NRA files lawsuits against the Republican Party, you know we're in the End Times.

Via USA Today:

The National Rifle Association filed a federal lawsuit this afternoon against the state to block a law that had just been signed by Gov. Rick Scott that prohibits gun sales to anyone between the ages of 18 and 21.

“We filed a lawsuit against the state for violating the constitutional rights of 18 to 21 year olds,” said Marion Hammer, lobbyist for the NRA in Florida. NRA lawyers in Tallahassee and Washington D.C. were working on the complaint this afternoon, and filed the complaint moments before the court’s deadline.

It was also filed more than an hour after Scott signed the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act into law. The lawsuit names Attorney General Pam Bondi and Rick Swearingen of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
