On this edition of Civil Rights Roundup, NRA Deputy General Counsel Stefan Tahmassebi talks with John Popp about the Chan v. Seattle preemption law case. The lawsuit, filed by the NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund, stops the city and the Mayor of Seattle from creating roundabout ways to ban guns on public property. The state law is clear on the matter, saying, "the state of Washington hereby fully occupies and preempts the entire field of firearms regulation within the boundaries of the state, including the possession of firearms or any other element relating to firearms or parts thereof." Tahmassebi says that there is still a possible appeal on the case, but the NRA feels that the courts will rule in favor of firearms freedom.
