NRA Vows To Challenge Maryland Gun Law

April 09, 2013  | 

The National Rifle Association's president told a Washington, D.C. radio station Tuesday the organization will "absolutely" challenge Maryland's strict gun control law awaiting the governor's signature.

The NRA has already filed a legal challenge to New York's assault-weapon and high-capacity magazine ban, David Keene told WTOP.

"We are already in court in New York and we will be in court and aiding those in Maryland—and I'm myself a Maryland resident—who want to challenge the constitutionality of this and other provisions here in Maryland," Keene said.

In April, the state's legislature passed the Firearm Safety Act of 2013, which would ban magazines that hold more than 10 bullets and ban 45 types of semiautomatic rifles classified as assault weapons. It's set to go into effect Oct. 1.

Gov. Martin O'Malley does not plan to sign the law until May, reports the Baltimore Sun. The Maryland Attorney General's Office reviews every law for constitutionality before it is signed.
