A federal judge has refused a request by a California man to dismiss part of a lawsuit in which the National Rifle Association’s longtime Florida lobbyist alleges she received harassing and threatening emails in the aftermath of the February mass shooting at a Broward County high school.

Florida is one of a handful of states supporting the National Rifle Association’s challenge of a federal law that restricts young adults from buying guns, according to the Times/Herald Tallahassee Bureau.   Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, along with 22 other attorneys general, said she will sign onto the brief.  Currently, federal law restricts people between the ages of 18 and 21 from purchasing guns.
