HARTFORD - A organization that represents some Connecticut firearms companies is suing the state over gun laws it adopted in response to the Newtown shooting.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation, located in Newtown, filed a federal lawsuit yesterday.

The suit alleges that Gov. Dannel Malloy and Democrats bypassed the approvals process when the sweeping legislation was signed into law.

The group is asking a judge to overturn the law.
