In September, the Supreme Court agreed to consider the McDonald case, on appeal from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. That court incorrectly claimed that prior Supreme Court precedent prevented it from holding in favor of incorporation of the Second Amendment. As we argued at the time, the Seventh Circuit should have followed the lead of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision in Nordyke v. King, which found that Supreme Court precedent does not prevent the Second Amendment from applying to the states through the Fourteenth Amendment’s Due Process Clause.
As a party in McDonald, the NRA is actively involved in this case and we believe the brief makes a clear and strong case in favor of incorporation of the Second Amendment. Read the brief here: http://www.nraila.org/pdfs/NRA08-1521.pdf
