Supporting Pennsylvania’s restrictions on 18-to-20-year-olds carrying firearms in public.
Court: Third Circuit
Issues at Stake: Public carry; Age Restrictions
Summary: Everytown filed this brief in the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, urging the court to affirm the district court’s decision upholding Pennsylvania’s restrictions on open and concealed public carry for those under 21.
Everytown’s amicus brief argues that restrictions on the transfer of firearms to individuals under 21 are consistent with historical understandings of the Second Amendment. It explains that individuals under 21 were historically considered minors, and that laws curtailing minors’ access to and use of firearms have existed for more than 150 years.
