She opened back up after she was sued. I'm not sure what you mean by a law that doesn't exist. There is absolutely a law that allows for punishing local politicians with fines and even removal from office for passing local gun control laws. It was passed in 2011 to give some teeth to the 1987 law that preempts local governments from passing gun control laws. Fried filed a court brief last year claiming the law is unconstitutional. I'm not sure how that action fits into her duties as the Ag commissioner, so she must have a personal reason for doing it. There is only one reason to fight the law - to give local government the ability to pass local gun control laws that the state will then have to challenge in court.
