What We Can Expect from Gun Law Lawsuit


The first major lawsuit aimed at repealing Connecticut’s new gun law was filed this week, and this Sunday on Face the State, you’ll hear from the lead attorney in the case.

Brian Stapleton represents the interests of the Coalition of Connecticut Sportsmen, the Connecticut Citizens Defense League, two gun shops, and some ordinary citizens. During our taping, Stapleton laid out his argument as to why the law should be repealed, and what will happen if he loses in court. I also asked him what he would say to the parents of the Sandy Hook school shooting victims, who pushed for the law.


Does the lawsuit have merit? How long before the arguments will be heard? For some legal analysis, we are also joined by Hartford Attorney Proloy Das, of Rome and McGuigan.
