26 GOP AGs file brief in support of Second Amendment, concealed carry laws at Supreme Court

A coalition of more than two dozen Republican state attorneys general have filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court urging justices to declare a New York state concealed carry gun law unconstitutional.

Attorneys General Mark Brnovich of Arizona and Eric Schmitt of Missouri are co-leading the group of 26 states filing the legal brief in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Corlett — a case backed by the National Rifle Association (NRA) that deals with a New York law limiting who can carry concealed handguns outside their homes.

“Law-abiding citizens should not require the consent of faceless bureaucrats to exercise their right to keep and bear arms,” Brnovich said in a Tuesday statement. “New York cannot override the Second Amendment or the natural right of self-preservation. I will continue to vigorously protect Americans’ constitutional rights.”
