NRA-ILA Applauds Sen. Ted Cruz and U.S. Senators’ Amicus Brief Supporting Second Amendment Case Before Supreme Court

Gun Rights

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

NRA-ILA applauds Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and the 24 other Senators who filed an amicus brief supporting the individual, fundamental right of self-defense outside the home.

As detailed in the brief, the Senators explain their support to the Justices in direct terms: because they have “sworn to ‘support and defend the Constitution,’” and support the “Second Amendment against depredations by any or all of the Legislative, Executive, or Judicial branches of the federal or state governments.” Further, they reaffirmed their belief that “[t]he Second Amendment’s guarantee of the right to keep and bear arms cannot be second-guessed by legislators across the country who simply disagree with the choice the Framers made.”
