Gun activists raising money to fight Conn. law

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Three gun rights organizations, including the National Rifle Association, are joining forces to challenge Connecticut's new gun control law in court.

Scott Wilson, president of the Connecticut Citizens Defense League, said Thursday that his organization, the NRA and the Coalition of Connecticut Sportsmen are raising funds from gun clubs, gun shops and individuals to help finance a legal team.

Last week, the General Assembly passed and Gov. Dannel P. Malloy signed into law a wide-ranging bill that bans the sale of high-capacity ammunition magazines, expands the state's assault weapons ban, and imposes other restrictions on gun owners. Malloy contends package is ``on a strong footing.''

On Thursday, New London resident Scott Ennis filed the first lawsuit challenging the new law. He's the founder of the Disabled Americans for Firearms Rights.
