The state Rifle and Pistol Association today is set to file a notice of claim over the state’s new gun-control law, the first step toward a lawsuit over the measure.

The group’s executive director, Thomas King, confirmed to Gannett’s Albany Bureau this morning that the notice would be filed today in Albany. The notice of claim would give the group 90 days to file its lawsuit.

“There are no grounds listed on the notice of claim. Obviously, we are going to be looking at constitutional as well as other issues,” King said.

A lawsuit against Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s gun-control law was expected, and it will likely add to the divisiveness over the issue.

Gun-rights supporters have derided the law, which was hastily passed Jan. 15, as a violation of the Second Amendment.
