THE BATTLE over guns in the House of Representatives is most likely headed to court.
A group of Republican representatives announced their plans to sue Speaker Steve Shurtleff on Thursday morning, just before the House’s first voting session of the year was about to get underway.
The group’s attorney, former Merrimack Republican Rep. Dan Hynes, on Friday provided a copy of the lawsuit that he said is ready to file in Merrimack County Superior Court immediately after the next voting session of the House, unless representatives vote to revoke or significantly modify the recent rule banning firearms in the chamber and anterooms.
