The National Rifle Association Filed a claim over firearm control enactment by Florida Gov. Rick Scott, saying it disregards the Second Amendment by raising the age to purchase firearms from 18 to 21.
The claim came hours after Gov. Scott, a Republican, signed the bill into law Friday evening.
Legal counselors for the NRA need a government judge to obstruct the new age confinement from taking effect.
The new enactment raises the base age to purchase rifles from 18 to 21, expands a three-day wait period for handgun buys to incorporate long weapons and bans bump stocks that enable firearms to emulate fully automatic fire. It likewise makes a supposed “watchman” program that empowers educators and other school representatives to carry handguns.
The new measures come in the wake of the Feb. 14 shooting frenzy at Marjory Stone man Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that slaughtered 17 individuals.
