Yesterday, the NRA, Governor Phil Bryant, and a coalition of 80 pro-Second Amendment state legislators each submitted separate "friend of the court" briefs in support of the Combined Petition for Interlocutory Appeal and Motion to Vacate Permanent Injunction filed by the state Attorney General's Office with the Supreme Court of Mississippi last week. That appeal and motion asked justices to overturn the previous ruling of the lower court and allow NRA-backed House Bill 2 to take effect.
A copy of the NRA’s brief, challenging the notion that House Bill 2 contains unconstitutionally vague language, can be found here. A copy of the state lawmakers' amicus curiae brief, laying out their response to this misguided challenge to their legislative and constitutional authority to enact pro-self-defense laws such as HB 2, can be found here. To view a copy of the brief filed by Governor Phil Bryant seeking the permanent injunction be vacated, click here.
We will report to you on any future action the state high court takes affecting implementation of HB 2. For more information on the provisions of HB 2, please see NRA-ILA’s previous alerts here.
