Wayne LaPierre — the National Rifle Association honcho who doesn’t believe any court in the land should ever have jurisdiction over those who own, carry and use guns — has one use for the legal system: He intends to use courts to fight any gun control laws that pass Congress.
Said LaPierre when Field & Steam magazine asked him about how the pro-gun organization might react to any new laws:
There will definitely be legal challenges. The Second Amendment is one of our most basic freedoms and we’re going to stand up for this freedom in every way possible, whether it’s fighting the legislative fight, whether it’s fighting the courts.
So what will NRA fight in court? On, things like an assault weapons ban, universal background checks on gun purchasers and limits on the number of rounds allow in magazines — items not guaranteed by the Second Amendment.
