A federal judge denied a request by the city of L.A. to dismiss the National Rifle Association lawsuit. The suit is challenging a new law requiring city contractors to disclose any ties they have to the gun- rights group. City officials say the ordinance doesn’t ban NRA- connected contractors from doing business with the city but the city has a right to know who they are doing business with. NRA officials say the ordinance is the city’s way of silencing the voice of lawful gun owners.
