CIR Files Motion for Preliminary Injunction Against Massachusetts Stun Gun Ban

Yesterday the Center for Individual Rights filed a motion for preliminary injunction in the Federal District Court for the District of Massachusetts that asks the court to suspend Massachusetts’s ban on electric weapons as our case proceeds.

The motion asks Federal Judge Douglas Woodlock to bar Massachusetts authorities from enforcing the ban while the lawsuit is pending on the grounds that the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms is being violated every day the statute remains on the books, that the harm to clients Chris Martel, Donna Majors, Lyn Bates is ongoing and potentially irreparable, and that the likelihood of success on the merits is quite high.
