23 Attorneys General Support NRA-Backed Magazine Case Before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Wednesday, April 6, 2022

23 Attorneys General Support NRA-Backed Magazine Case Before the U.S. Supreme Court.

In February, NRA-ILA, in partnership with the California Rifle & Pistol Association, petitioned the United States Supreme Court to hear Duncan v. Bonta, a case challenging California’s ban on magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds.

On April 1st, 23 Attorneys General filed an amicus brief supporting the case.  Drafting was led by:

  • Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich,
  • Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry,
  • Oklahoma Attorney General John O’Connor, and
  • West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey.

 Nineteen other Attorneys General joined the brief:

  • Steve Marshall of Alabama,
  • Treg Taylor of Alaska,
  • Leslie Rutledge of Arkansas,
  • Chris Carr of Georgia,
  • Lawrence Wasden of Idaho,
  • Todd Rokita of Indiana,
  • Derek Schmidt of Kansas,
  • Daniel Cameron of Kentucky,
  • Lynn Fitch of Mississippi,
  • Eric Schmitt of Missouri,
  • Austin Knudsen of Montana,
  • Doug Peterson of Nebraska,
  • Dave Yost of Ohio,
  • Alan Wilson of South Carolina,
  • Jason Ravnsborg of South Dakota,
  • Herbert Slatery III of Tennessee,
  • Ken Paxton of Texas,
  • Sean Reyes of Utah, and
  • Bridget Hill of Wyoming

As the chief legal and law enforcement officer in their respective states, these Attorneys General offered critical support in defense of the Second Amendment. “Calling Standard Magazines ‘large-capacity’ is a misnomer,” the brief argues. Standard magazines “often hold only in the range of eleven to fifteen rounds (in no way a large absolute number) and come standard with many of the most popular firearms.” The brief further argues that “There is nothing sinister about citizens bearing Standard Magazines. Law-abiding citizens bearing Standard Magazines with lawful firearms benefit public safety, counter-balance the threat of illegal gun violence, and help make our streets safer.”

NRA-ILA commends the hard work and dedication that these Attorneys General invested into their SCOTUS brief and the Second Amendment.
