NRA's quest to expand gun rights takes it to court

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The National Rifle Association is involved in hundreds of legal cases across the country, many in California.

An NRA spokesman says the organization has involved itself in a large number of cases since a seminal U.S. Supreme Court ruling in 2008 that upstanding Americans have the fundamental right to keep guns in their homes.

Since then, the NRA has initiated its own lawsuits and joined other legal challenges seeking to blunt gun-control laws and expand the reach of the Second Amendment. It also helps people embroiled in legal trouble because they own guns.
