Federal judge finds Brady lawsuit against Kansas gun laws without merit

Chris Eger for reports:

A federal judge last week tossed out a lawsuit from a gun control group challenging Kansas over what has been called the strictest Second Amendment protection law in the nation.

The suit, filed last year in U.S. District Court by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, aimed to take Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback (R) and the state to task over the Sunflower State’s controversial Second Amendment Protection Act.

The law at the center of the suit provides state residents protection of their gun rights by providing an exemption from federal gun control laws, including bans or restrictions on certain guns, magazines or ammunition, for all guns and accessories within the state’s borders.

Signed by Brownback in 2013, the law also prevents any federal agent from enforcing federal gun control laws within the state, as well as allowing prosecution of federal officers who try to enforce such laws within the state’s borders. Further, it includes strict penalties for both appointed and elected officials in the state who assist federal authorities in enforcing Washington’s gun laws.
