Several states have signed onto an amicus brief filed in support of a lawsuit by the National Rifle Association against a federal law that restricts the sale of handguns to young adults between the ages of 18 and 20. The amicus brief was filed by the Attorney General for Alabama. 21 states have co-signed the amicus brief including Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Montana and Oklahoma. The case in questions is the National Rifle Association of American vs. the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
