NRA Sues Sunnyvale Over Gun Law

at 9:00 AM

The National Rifle Association has filed a lawsuit against the city of Sunnyvale in response to a gun control law passed by voters there in November. The city now requires gun owners to quickly report firearm theft and lock up their guns at home. It also bans possession of magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. The NRA says the measure violates the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment.
