TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is joining with 21 other states that support a National Rifle Association effort to overturn a federal gun law.
Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange late last week filed a brief supporting the NRA's attempt to have a federal court strike down a law that restricts handguns to people under the age of 21. Florida and 20 other states co-signed the brief.
The lawsuit-- which is now before the U.S. Supreme Court -- seeks to end a federal prohibition on the sale of handguns by federally licensed dealers to people aged 18 through 20.
Strange maintains that many states already allow young adults to purchase guns legally.
A federal appeals court upheld the law in October 2012.
