National Foundation for Gun Rights Sues Colorado Over Magazine Ban

Aug 1, 2022

The National Foundation for Gun Rights, the legal arm of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, mounted a renewed push on Colorado’s 15-round magazine capacity ban.

In light of the NYRSPA v. Bruen ruling, Justice Clarence Thomas’s majority opinion gave warning to states with strict gun control laws.

“In last month’s landmark Bruen decision, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected ‘intermediate scrutiny’ — the cost/benefit analysis framework that allowed lower courts to rule against the Second Amendment — and established that the standard for applying the Second Amendment is the text, history and tradition of the right to keep and bear arms; thereby, invalidating the lower court rulings’ justification for gun control,” Rocky Mountain Gun Owners said in its announcement of the lawsuit.
