The NRA is declaring that two-thirds of the state attorneys general have signed an amicus brief in support of the U.S. Supreme Court hearing the case of NRA v. Chicago. In that case, the NRA contends that the Seventh District Court of Appeals erred in its declaration that the Second Amendment does not apply to states and cities; that those entities can create their own gun laws by disregarding the Second Amendment. (This is the same position that Obama’s Supreme Court appointee, Sonia Sotomayor has taken.)

The NRA believes that the Seventh District should have ruled as did the Ninth District recently in California saying that the “Due Process” clause of the Fourteenth Amendment incorporates the Second Amendment, therefore forcing the states to apply the Second Amendment and not create gun laws that supersede federal law.
