South Dakota has weighed in on a New York lawsuit, challenging the state’s ban on assault weapons and large capacity magazines. Court documents indicate New York enacted the ban in part to deter mass murders such as the shooting of school children and personnel at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. But Attorney General Marty Jackley tells SDPB’s Victoria Wicks that a ban in New York legalizes a ban in South Dakota, and violates the Second Amendment of the Constitution.
