The gun lobby wasted no time.
Just as we suspected, the National Rifle Association has filed its first lawsuit using the Supreme Court’s new interpretation of the Second Amendment to attack gun laws.
Within minutes of the decision, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre announced a challenge to gun laws in San Francisco and Chicago.
The Brady Center needs your help now. We cannot let the gun lobby get even one step ahead of our efforts to defend gun laws.
Have no doubt, there will be more attacks on gun laws. As Mr. LaPierre said, “this is the opening salvo.” The NRA is pushing more guns, in more places, in the hands of more people. We disagree. We should do all that we can to keep dangerous guns out of the hands of dangerous people.
If you have not yet made a gift to the Brady Gun Law Defense Fund — or if you can make an additional gift — I urge you to do so today.
We have our work cut out for us, but I know we can beat the gun lobby in court. All nine Justices agreed that most gun laws should be found constitutional — like laws banning guns in schools, laws that regulate the sales of guns, and bans on “dangerous and unusual” weapons.
We have common sense on our side. And, with the Brady Center’s legal expertise and years of experience, we can and will help defend gun laws that protect you, your family and your community.
Thank you for your support today.Sincerely,
Sarah Brady, Chair
And note the Paulie doesn't mention just what those lawsuits are against. Gun Bans. Yet he opposes those suits. But they aren't a "gun ban organization" in no way, shape, or form.
