NRA Files Suit Against Another Washington State ‘Safe Storage’ Law

The National Rifle Association and the Second Amendment Foundation have filed a suit against the city of Edmonds, Washington.

In the lawsuit, gun-rights groups claimed that the city of Edmonds violated the state’s preemption law.

The city has passed an ordinance requiring gun owners to store their firearms. Thus, weapons are locked and inaccessible when the owner isn’t carrying or using them.

Gun-rights groups said that the ordinance goes into effect on August 23, 2018. Those who refuse to obey can face up to $10,000 in fines per infraction.
