    Irish Times - Irish gun owners attack new gun laws in court - 200 hundred cases filed

    http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/...289076773.html

    THE STATE is facing a serious legal challenge to the ban on handguns and restrictions on other firearms, with almost 200 gun enthusiasts lodging judicial review cases against new gun laws.

    The large number of cases represents an unprecedented level of challenge to any legislation introduced in recent years.

    According to the Department of Justice, a total of 175 judicial reviews had been lodged at the end of last year arising from the refusal of the Garda to grant gun licences.

    That figure is now believed to be closer to 200 cases.

    . . .

    Mr Crofton said he expected "hundreds more" cases.

    Go Ireland go! Hopefully citizens of other countries see this and fight back as well.

    I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few politicians. - George Mason (father of the Bill of Rights and The Virginia Declaration of Rights)
