Gun Rights Group Sues to Block First U.S. Firearms Insurance Law

  • City’s mayor calls the ordinance first of its kind in the U.S.
  • Association says it strikes at ‘core’ of constitutional rights

A gun rights organization sued San Jose, California, arguing a first-of-its-kind city ordinance requiring gun owners to purchase liability insurance is unconstitutional.

The National Association for Gun Rights filed the suit Wednesday in federal court in San Jose, a day after the law was passed. The group seeks a court order blocking the ordinance.
