Gun rights groups sue over Seattle firearm storage law


Gun rights groups are suing the City of Seattle over its new law requiring gun owners to lock up their firearms.

The National Rifle Association, Bellevue's Second Amendment Foundation and two Seattle residents are behind the suit challenging the city's gun storage law.  Mayor Jenny Durkan signed the legislation earlier this month, introducing fines ranging from $500 to $10,000.

Bill Radke speaks to Robert Spitzer, distinguished service professor at The State University of New York Cortland. He's the author of five books on gun policy, including The Politics of Gun Control
