From the Firearms Policy Coalition . . .
Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) announced today that it has filed a new Second Amendment lawsuit challenging Delaware’s ban on so-called “assault weapons.” The complaint in Gray v. Jennings, along with other case information, can be viewed at FPCLegal.org.
“In this case, the analysis is straightforward,” argues the complaint. “The Plaintiffs may not be prohibited from exercising their right to keep and bear arms. The Second Amendment’s text covers the conduct the Plaintiffs wish to engage in and the arms they wish to acquire and possess. The arms the Plaintiffs wish to acquire and possess are not dangerous and unusual today. Moreover, there is no analogous history supportive of Delaware’s Ban. Thus, under the Supreme Court’s precedents, the constitutionally relevant history, and the proper analysis, Plaintiffs must prevail.”
“Today’s filing is yet another in FPC’s aggressive national litigation campaign targeting those states that elect to implement immoral and arbitrary restrictions on bearable arms,” said FPC Director of Legal Operations Bill Sack. “Despite their apparent belief otherwise, Delaware lawmakers are not exempt from the demands of the Constitution.”
FPC is joined in this lawsuit by the Second Amendment Foundation.
