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

“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.

  1. Having these sort of bans declared unconstitutional is so appealing I think I can actually taste it and feel myself biting into them. Oh what a time we live in.

    • I’m gonna send them a birthday present. Thank God for the NRA. If it wasn’t for them we would all have been disarmed. Decades ago.

  2. Nancy Pelosi steps down as leader of House Democrats after two decades >

    The democrat spin…

    She isn’t stepping down as the house democrat leader. She was the house democrat majority leader only because the democrats had control of the house thus she was the house democrat leader. Now the republicans have control of the house. She doesn’t have the option of ‘stepping down’, she was fired from that position the moment that 218 seats for the republicans became reality.

    • She has been the leader of the Democratic Caucus in the House of Representatives for 20 years. During that time, she was Speaker of the House – which is reserved for the leader of the majority caucus – for something like 8 years (non-consecutive).
      She is withdrawing her name from “Minority leader” contention. Which is what Kevin McCarthy had been on the Republican side.

      It’s not spin….

      Spin is she is stepping down to allow the next crop of Democratic Leaders lead. The reality is she is old, fragile, and isn’t as “progressive” as the Democrats seem to want, and her husband has put her in multiple negative spotlights in the past year. This takes her “out” of the spotlight….

  3. Here’s to the SAF and FPC!

    They’ve really been rolling these out at an impressive rate post-Bruen. I just hope they have enough good staff to handle the case load they’re taking on.

    • Max Mueller, Time for you to wake up and smell the coffee. Where do you think the Heller, McDonald and Bruen decisions came from? Trust me, they did not just drop out of the sky.

      • Bruen was from an NRA affiliated group, the NYSRPA in NYSRPA v. Bruen, not the NRA themselves. The NRA who mostly only served as a coat tails riders/hangers on.

        • William, news for you, while the NYSR&PA was the initial riving force, the NRA chipped in as well with money and attorneys. No, it was a lot more than “coat tails.”
          As it stands, when NYS passed their law restricting concealed carry, it took four months for NYSR&PA to get off their lead ass and file a case and then rather than asking the Federal Court to find the State in Contempt, they went willy nilly and jugst asked to find that law unconstitutional. What is really needed is finin NYS in Contempt of thee Bruen decision.

  4. After a few more of these bans are overturned, it should be obvious to everyone (not already tuned-in gun rights activists) that the 2A means what is written, and further and/or continuing bans will not be tolerated.

    At that time, FPC needs to to after the “conspiracies to deprive civil rights under color of law.” Dragging city council members, members of congress, and – gleefully – executive directors of anti-gun lobbies, who are all conspiring to deprive citizens of their civil rights, into court for criminal charges would be a great deal of fun/justice.

    • You think the fascist progs will give up that easily? They will slightly “tweak”, and then issue, a new round dictates before you even get your party hat to celebrate the end of the last round. They have NO interest in what the Constitution says.

  5. I suspect that some states, unfortuately, will fight to keep every last infringements, and keep trying to add new ones, to the bitter end. (I’m looking at you, California!) If there is an end to it.

  6. Pretty sad state of affairs when some one has to sue .gov to get them to abide by the rights set forth in the constitution.
    Shall not be Infringed.
    Hide and watch.
    When I’m waiting 5, 10, 20, 30 minutes or 3 days to get permission to exercise a Constitutional Right its not a right, its permission from a government.
    So, We Have A Constitution a Bill of Rights, as long as the .gov plays it.
