(From The Washington Free Beacon)
The [National Rifle Association and Second Amendment Foundation] suit represents the latest step in the gun-rights groups’ fight against the collection of new gun regulations imposed by ballot initiative 1639 which passed during the midterm elections. . . .
Initiative 1639 successfully outlawed the sale of semiautomatic rifles to adults under the age of 21, instituted a requirement that those who wish to purchase a handgun sign a waiver allowing police to search their private medical records, mandated a 10-day waiting period for all semiautomatic rifle purchases, and instituted a number of additional gun-control measures.
