"The NRA's lawsuit is a futile and desperate attempt to advance its dangerous agenda to sell more guns.
"In New York, we won't be intmidated by frivolous court actions from a group of lobbyists bent on chipping away at common sense gun safety laws that many responsible gun owners actually support. We have an obligation to protect New Yorkers, and this sham suit will do nothing to stop that.
