Gun Owners’ Action League has joined a team of organizations to file action in federal court against the closure of firearm and ammunition retailers. The team is comprised of Comm2A, Second Amendment Foundation, Firearms Policy Coalition, and GOAL.
The suit was filed against several Massachusetts officials and police chiefs within the Commonwealth. The Commonwealth’s actions effectively prevent Massachusetts residents from engaging in constitutionality protected conduct at a time when the need for personal protection could become most acute.
The complaint seeks a declaratory judgement that COVID-19 Executive Orders 13 & 19 violate the Second and Fourteenth Amendments to the US Constitution. We further seek to enjoin defendants from enforcing provisions of the executive orders that prohibit the purchase and sale of firearms and ammunition.
The partners in this action are represented by attorneys Jason Guida, Steven J. Foley, and David Jensen.
