NRA Files Lawsuit Against California Officials For Closing Gun Shops During Coronavirus Outbreak

• https://needtoknow.news, Gateway Pundit

The NRA is suing California officials for closing gun stores during the coronavirus outbreak, accusing them of "promoting a gun-control agenda that suffocates your self-defense rights when you need them most." The Second Amendment Foundation, California Gun Rights Foundation, and Firearms Policy Coalition are also involved in the lawsuit.
A federal agency, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, listed gun stores as "critical infrastructure" in response to states shutting down firearms retailers as "non-essential" businesses during the coronavirus lockdowns. The agency advised that all workers supporting the operation of firearm or ammunition product manufacturers, retailers, importers, distributors, and shooting ranges" are to be considered essential. -GEG

Gun shops have been listed as "critical infrastructure" by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency on Saturday.
The move comes as states have been shutting down the retailers as "non-essential" businesses during the coronavirus lockdowns.

The agency advised that all "workers supporting the operation of firearm or ammunition product manufacturers, retailers, importers, distributors, and shooting ranges" are to be considered essential. They were not listed on an advisory from the same agency previously.
