NRA-ILA Applauds Attorneys General Amicus Brief Supporting Second Amendment Case Before Supreme Court

Earlier this year, the Supreme Court agreed to hear the NRA-ILA backed case challenging New York’s restrictive concealed-carry-licensing regime. NRA-ILA’s opening brief is located here.

Today, NRA-ILA applauds the 26 Attorneys General who filed an amicus brief supporting this important case. Led by Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich and Missouri Attorney General Eric S. Schmitt, the brief was joined by Attorneys General Steve Marshall of Alabama, Treg Taylor of Alaska, Leslie Rutledge of Arkansas, Ashley Moody of Florida, Christopher M. Carr of Georgia, Lawrence G. Wasden of Idaho, Theodore E. Rokita of Indiana, Derek Schmidt of Kansas, Daniel Cameron of Kentucky, Jeff Landry of Louisiana, Lynn Fitch of Mississippi, Austin Knudsen of Montana,  Douglas J. Peterson of Nebraska, John Formella of New Hampshire, Wayne Stenehjem of North Dakota, Dave Yost of Ohio, Dawn Cash of Oklahoma, Alan Wilson of South Carolina, Jason R. Ravnsborg of South Dakota, Herbert H. Slatery III of Tennessee, Ken Paxton of Texas, Sean D. Reyes of Utah, Patrick Morrisey of West Virginia, and Bridget Hill of Wyoming.

These Attorneys General confirmed that their support of the NRA-ILA backed case stems from “a special responsibility to safeguard their citizens’ fundamental rights, including their right to bear arms in self-defense outside the home.” They argued that “[c]itizens should not have to be murdered, raped, or robbed before they can avail themselves of their ‘natural right of resistance and self-preservation’—by then, it is too late.”

NRA-ILA greatly appreciates the work that these Attorneys General invested into this pro-Second Amendment brief that is now before the Supreme Court of the United States. We commend the dedication these 26 Attorneys General have shown to the Second Amendment and the right to keep and bear arms for all law-abiding citizens across the Nation.

The case is captioned New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. Bruen.
