Turning BRUEN On Its Head
The Firearms Policy Coalition and the Second Amendment Foundation are suing Washington over its “high capacity” (10+ rounds) magazine ban. That’s old news in itself. What is new is that the Aliiance for Gun Responsibility joined the case as “intervenor-defendant.”
Yes, someone petitioned the court to be sued. Odd, but not unprecedented. More often if someone thinks they have valid points to bring to the court’s attention they would file an amicus brief. But actually being a party to the case gives them more leeway to file motions and responses and potentially call more witnesses.
But I couldn’t help wondering exactly what the AGR, the primary backers of the ban, expected to bring before the court that the existing governmental defendants couldn’t or wouldn’t.
I’d sanction that idiot attorney.
