Louisiana AG joins effort to deem Maryland’s gun restrictions unconstitutional

by Emily Lane  |  published on November 18, 2014

Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell has joined 20 other state attorneys general in opposing Maryland’s Firearm Safety Act of 2013, which Caldwell says restricts gun rights.

Caldwell’s office announced Friday (Nov. 14) that he has joined in filing an amicus brief opposing the law because it “violates citizens’ rights to keep and bear arms protected by the Second Amendment.”

Amicus briefs are legal opinions submitted by those who are not a party to a case but may have an indirect interest in the case’s outcome.

According to The Baltimore Sun, the act is “one of the strictest gun laws in the nation,” which bans the sale of assault weapons, requires fingerprints and license to buy a handgun and limits magazines to 10 bullets.

“These continuing and repeated assaults on our Second Amendment rights have got to stop,” Caldwell said in a statement.
