NRA-ILA :: U.S. Supreme Court Grants NRA Motion For Divided Argument In McDonald v. City of Chicago


Vol. 17, No. 4***** 01/29/10

U.S. Supreme Court Grants NRA Motion For Divided Argument In McDonald v. City of Chicago

On Monday, January 25, the U.S. Supreme Court granted NRA's motion to allow it to participate in the upcoming oral argument in McDonald v. City of Chicago.

"We are pleased with the Court's decision to grant our motion," said NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox.* "NRA's solitary goal in McDonald is to ensure that our fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms applies to*every law-abiding American in every*state.*

We are hopeful that the Court will share our view that the Framers of the Fourteenth Amendment clearly intended to apply the Second Amendment to the states."

Last September, the Court agreed to consider the McDonald case, on appeal from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.

That court incorrectly claimed that prior Supreme Court precedent prevented it from holding in favor of incorporation of the Second Amendment.*

NRA believes the Seventh Circuit should have followed the lead of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals' decision in Nordyke v. King, which found that Supreme Court precedent does not prevent the Second Amendment from applying to the states through the Fourteenth Amendment's Due Process Clause.*

As a party in McDonald, NRA looks forward to participating in the upcoming oral argument.**
