Second Amendment challenge to New York state stun gun ban


Avitabile v. Cuomo, filed over the weekend in federal district court, claims that the New York state ban on stun guns violates the Second Amendment; I'm pleased to say that I'll be consulting a bit on this litigation. For more on recent developments in stun gun law, see this post; for more on the general Second Amendment issue, see this article and, of course, the Supreme Court's decision in Caetano v. Massachusetts.
