WASHINGTON – Everytown Law, the litigation arm of Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund, today released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral argument in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, a case challenging the constitutionality under the Second Amendment of a New York law regulating the concealed carry of firearms in public.
“Today’s argument made clear that even the court’s most conservative justices have hesitations about granting the gun lobby its ultimate goal in this case – the unrestricted right to carry guns in all public places at all times,” said Eric Tirschwell, executive director of Everytown Law. “There are a number of ways the court could ultimately decide this case, and the details of its ruling matter. As the justices heard today, this is ultimately about whether elected officials will continue to be able to make decisions about protecting their communities – including by limiting the carrying of guns in football stadiums, university campuses and shopping malls.”
Everytown filed an amicus brief in September, defending the constitutionality of New York’s law, as did prominent conservative former government officials and legal experts, former national security officials, and faith leaders, among others. Everytown also published an analysis calling into question claims made by the petitioners about a seemingly minor issue of historical fact that they placed significant weight on – whether prominent members of the founding generation carried firearms.
