U.S. Court Upholds Strict Gun Control Law

Published on 23 Mar 2016, 7:59
A federal appeals court on Tuesday ruled that plaintiffs lacked standing to bring a lawsuit challenging gun control laws approved by Colorado in the wake of a movie theater massacre in a Denver suburb ordering the lower courts to dismiss the case.
The legislation came about as a result by the July 2012 shooting rampage at a midnight shooting of a "Batman" movie in Aurora that killed 12 people and the slaying later that year of 20 children and six adults at an elementary school in Newton, Connecticut. The laws, which banned ammunition magazines with more than 15 rounds and required universal background checks for gun buyers, prompted a fierce backlash from critics that led to voters recalling two key Democratic members of the state legislature.
