NAGR Sues Over Massachusetts’s Longstanding “Assault Weapons” Ban

Jun 13, 2023

Last week, the National Association for Gun Rights was heard by a First Circuit U.S. Judge in their attempt to overturn then-Gov. Mitt Romney’s ban on so-called “assault weapons” and standard-capacity magazines.

Since the landmark Bruen ruling came down from the Supreme Court of the United States, states have been instructed to fashion gun laws that are in line with the history and tradition of the Second Amendment.

The National Association for Gun Rights believes this gives them enough of a chance to overturn Massachusetts’s so-called “Assault Weapons” Ban, as well as their ban on standard-capacity magazines.

Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights said this about the lawsuit:

“Massachusetts has been directly violating the Second Amendment for decades. Under Bruen, there is no doubt in my mind the days of Romney’s Assault Weapons Ban are numbered. The National Association for Gun Rights will see to it that the rights of the people of Massachusetts are restored.”

NAGR is asking the judge for a preliminary injuction against the law while the case carries on.

This case is accompanied by many other lawsuits filed nationwide by the National Association for Gun Rights to “end gun bans once and for all.”

Brown also added:

“If the court disagrees and refuses to grant us a preliminary injunction, we look forward to appealing to the First Circuit Court of Appeals and on to the Supreme Court if necessary. Bans on commonly owned weapons fly in the face of both the Constitution and the Supreme Court’s Heller and Bruen rulings, and they cannot be allowed to stand.”
