The National Foundation for Gun Rights filed an amicus brief in U.S. Supreme Court case New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen – the first major Second Amendment case the Supreme Court has agreed to consider in over ten years.

The case challenges New York’s permit laws, which prohibit concealed carry permits unless there’s a “special” reason to carry a gun (which does not include general self-defense, according to state courts).

NFGR’s amicus brief argues that the Second Amendment is NOT a second-class right — as state legislatures, lower federal courts, and even the Supreme Court itself have treated it — and that the right to public carry is protected by the Second Amendment as understood by the Founders.
