Speak Up: Gun clubs file lawsuit regarding assault weapons ban


The Delaware State Sportsmens Association and various gun clubs challenged the constitutionality of the state’s recently passed gun-control measures recently, as outlined in a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court.

The litigation, awaiting action in the court’s District of Delaware, seeks “injunctive and declaratory relief” for the passage of House Bill 450, which banned the sale of assault weapons following Gov. John Carney’s signature last month.

The association was joined in the suit by the Bridgeville Rifle & Pistol Club, The Delaware Association of Federal Firearms Licensees and the Delaware Rifle & Pistol Club, as well as individual members of each organization.
