Congressman Ron Estes yesterday announced his support for the Second Amendment as an important court case rolls on. Estes has signed on to an amicus curiae brief supporting the U.S. Supreme Court case New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. City of New York. The case, brought by the NYSRPA, challenges New York City’s law banning the transportation of firearms by city residents to any location outside city limits.
The case is the first Second Amendment case heard by the nation's highest court in over a decade. Estes is one of over 100 members to have signed onto the amicus brief supporting the case.
