Massachusetts “Assault Weapon” and Magazine Ban Lawsuit

The National Foundation for Gun Rights is suing the state of Massachusetts to overturn their so called “assault weapon” and magazine ban. With the decision handed down in Bruen, laws like this one will now need to find their justification in the history, text, and tradition of the Second Amendment. These laws ban firearms that are in common use throughout the United States in violation of the rule set forth in Heller. Massachusetts is in the 1st Circuit of the US Court of Appeals. A victory here will establish good legal precedent throughout the entire circuit, including Maine, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island.
