Second Amendment

Supreme Court to Hear Monumental Second Amendment Case:
McDonald v.Chicago
Friday, October 02, 2009

NRA applauds the Supreme Court's recent decision to hear the landmark Second Amendment case ofMcDonald v. Chicago. The case will address the application of the Second Amendment to the states through either the Due Process clause or the Privileges or Immunities clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The case has major implications for the legality of restrictive gun laws not only in Chicago, but also in other cities across the United States. The decision to hear the case, which will be argued early next year, gives Second Amendment advocates across America hope that this fundamental freedom will not be infringed by unreasonable state and local laws.

"The Second Amendment applies to every citizen, not just to those living in federal enclaves like Washington, D.C. In the historic Heller decision, the Supreme Court reaffirmed what most Americans have known all alongthat the Second Amendment protects an individual right and that it applies to all Americans. The government should respect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens throughout our country, regardless of where they live, and NRA is determined to make sure that happens," said NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre.

KN: Let me tell you one thing, if Gore or Kerry had won the presidency there would be no Second Amendment as we know it. And if Obama gets the chance to replace a Conservative on the Supreme Court we won't have one in the future. Mark my word!
