Gun association intends law suit against New York State

New York Rifle & Pistol Association has filed a notice of intent to sue New York State in attempting to overturn the restrictive gun law passed two weeks ago, saying the laws passage and enforcement violate the constitutional right to bear arms, the right to privacy, unconstitutionally criminalizes guns and magazines that were previously legal.

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
