Everytown Law Responds After Supreme Court Denies All Pending Requests to Hear Challenges to Gun Safety Laws
NEW YORK — Everytown Law, the litigation arm of Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund, today released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court denied 10 petitions asking the court to review Second Amendment challenges to city and state gun safety laws.
“Opponents of gun safety laws have again failed in their efforts to get the Supreme Court to adopt their extreme and dangerous approach,” said Eric Tirschwell, managing director for Everytown Law. “In each of the cases, the lower courts correctly determined the Second Amendment is not a barrier to the reasonable, life-saving gun safety policies being challenged. The Supreme Court recognized there is no need to revisit these thorough rulings.”
