The National Rifle Association applauded an amicus brief signed by twenty-four attorneys general and governors in support of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. New York City, an NRA-backed Supreme Court case challenging New York City's unconstitutional requirements limiting the right of law-abiding gun owners to transport firearms outside of their homes. The effort was led by Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry.
“It's time for the Supreme Court to ensure that all federal courts treat the Second Amendment as a fundamental, constitutional right,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA's Institute for Legislative Action. “Twenty-four of America’s highest-ranking law enforcement and executive officers have come together to support the Second Amendment rights of their constituents.”
