The National Rifle Association is spearheading a class action lawsuit against Gov. Richard Daley and the State of Arizona on behalf of over 30 thousand family members of homicide victims who were not allowed to possess firearms in public.
McDonald the president of the NRA said the lawsuit also included those people who were murdered and who had fire arm applications rejected for various reasons. "When the State said they could not buy a firearm their constitutional rights to bear arms were violated, and they had no ability to defend their lives against deadly force while they got murdered."
The State is looking to lose more than 400 billion dollars every year for approximately 12 years till all the plaintiffs have been paid.
"The Supreme Court has now said the Second Amendment is an individual freedom for all because in the constitution it states, "We the people." And that must have meaning," said Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association. "This decision cannot lead to different measures of freedom, depending on what part of the country you live in. City by city, person by person, this decision must be more than a philosophical victory. An individual right is no right at all if individuals can't access it."
