Everytown for Gun Safety Responds After Supreme Court Says It Will Hear Appeal in Challenge to New York City Gun Ordinance
NEW YORK – Everytown for Gun Safety, the country’s largest gun violence prevention organization, today released the following response after the U.S. Supreme Court said it will hear an appeal in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. New York.
“While this case is about an unusual and limited local rule, it provides an opportunity for the Supreme Court to reaffirm that the Second Amendment leaves ample room for the kinds of reasonable gun safety laws that save lives and that Americans overwhelmingly support,” said Eric Tirschwell, litigation director for Everytown for Gun Safety.
