The National Rifle Association sued Maryland Gov. Wes Moore after he signed the Gun Safety Act of 2023 along with other gun safety measures into law Tuesday, court documents show.

The Gun Safety Act of 2023, or Senate Bill 1, prohibits “a person from knowingly wearing, carrying, or transporting a firearm in certain locations,” according to its synopsis.

There have been more than 220 mass shootings in the US so far this year, according to the non-profit.

The gun safety bill was one of several firearms-related bills signed Tuesday during a signing ceremony, according to the Democratic governor’s office.

Moore said the gun-control measures “will help keep our communities safe from gun crimes,” and “help get guns off our streets.”.

“We are taking action to build a safer, brighter future for Maryland,” he added in a Twitter post.

The federal suit was brought by the Maryland State Rifle & Pistol Association – the state affiliate of the NRA – along with a regulated firearms dealer. »
