KAUFMAN (AP) - An Army Ranger is suing to have his gun range reopened under an untested state law backed by the National Rifle Association.

An attorney for Adam Morgan says his client’s case is scheduled to go on trial Monday morning in Kaufman, southeast of Dallas.

Morgan says he opened a range on 100 acres of land. The county’s district attorney said residents near the range were at “immediate risk” and obtained a temporary injunction that stopped Morgan from operating the business.

The case, initiated last May and set for trial in September, will be the first test of a 2-year-old state law backed by the NRA that is designed to prevent nuisance suits against gun ranges.
