The NRA has filed a lawsuit against the recent provisions to gun laws made by Governor Rick Scott.

According to the report, the NRA believes that raising the age to purchase a gun from 18 to 21 is in violation of the Second Amendment and hope that a judge will block at least that part of the legislation that was signed by the governor almost two weeks ago.

The new legislation not only raises the age to purchase a gun from 18 to 21, but it also extends the waiting period to purchase a rifle to 3 days, bans bump stocks, and creates a “guardian” program that enables certain teachers and other school employees to carry handguns on campus.

Provisions to the gun laws were made in the wake of the shooting at Stoneman Douglas high school that left 17 people dead.
