National Group to Challenge Kansas Gun Law

TOPEKA, Kan.  -  A national gun-control group says it is planning to challenge a Kansas law declaring that the federal government has no authority to regulate guns manufactured, sold and kept only in the state.
The Washington-based Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence announced Monday that it would file a federal lawsuit Wednesday against the state law.
The Kansas law was enacted in 2013 and makes it a felony for any U.S. government employee to attempt to enforce a federal regulation or treaty when it comes to Kansas-only firearms, ammunition or accessories.
A similar law enacted in 2009 in Montana was struck down by the federal courts.

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback promised a vigorous defense of his state's law.
