The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) filed suit against California’s “assault weapons” ban on November 29, alleging it violates California’s Administrative Procedures Act.
Moreover, SAF claims the new “assault weapons” regulations “are invalid and unenforceable (because) they far exceed the scope, content, and purpose of the legal authority on which they are purportedly based.”
Breitbart News obtained the SAF release, which says, “California lawmakers have incrementally tightened regulations on the ownership of so-called ‘assault weapons’ over the past several years while expanding the definition of what constitutes such a firearm. The new regulations have done likewise with no oversight.”
SAF founder and Executive President Alan Gottlieb said, “The state’s relentless effort to crush the rights of law-abiding gun owners has gotten completely out of hand. In this particular case, the new regulations not only exceed the scope of the law, they are in conflict with the law, and are contradictory in some cases.”
