A group of students from the University of Colorado filed a lawsuit against the state over its new gun control laws. The plaintiffs, who are over 18 years old, argue that the new measures infringe on their Second Amendment rights. Here’s what you need to know about this colorado gun control lawsuit:
- Two pro-gun organizations represent the plaintiffs: Rocky Mountain Gun Owners and Firearms Policy Coalition.
- The lawsuit argues that the new gun control measures violate the Second Amendment rights of adults over 18 years old.
- One of the plaintiffs, Jeffry Smith, says he “doesn’t feel safe” since the passage of these new laws.
In the wake of the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, gun control has once again become a hot-button issue in America. While some states have tightened gun laws, others have taken a different approach.
The Colorado Attorney General’s office filed the lawsuit on several Colorado residents and businesses. The suit alleges that California’s new firearms regulations violate the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution.
