NRA sues to block new Washington gun-control measure

SEATTLE (AP) - The National Rifle Association is suing to block a new, voter-approved gun control measure in Washington state.Initiative 1639 passed with 60 percent of the vote last week. It bars the sale of semi-automatic rifles to people under 21 and to people who don't live in Washington, and it requires buyers to pass an enhanced background check and prove they have taken a firearms training course.
