Second Amendment Lawsuit
As you are aware Governor John Hickenlooper signed three anti-second Amendment bills into law on March 21, 2013.  The Independence Institute will lead the civil rights lawsuit against these unconstitutional laws.  The lawsuit will be based on the Second and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution, among other grounds.  The lawsuit will be brought on behalf of 37 Sheriffs (as of April 12, 2013), gun safety organizations, civil rights organizations, and others.
