The Bellevue-based Second Amendment Foundation is getting some heavyweight support in its petition to the Supreme Court for a Writ of Certiorari in a case challenging the gun permitting statute in the State of New York; a case that will have national impact because it could affect every concealed carry statute in the nation.
Supporting the motion are 20 state attorneys general, and gun owners in the other 30 states are wondering why their attorney general has not signed on. Washingtons new Democrat Attorney General Bob Fergusons name is not on the list.
Attorneys general who have signed onto an amicus were led by Virginia Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli. They represent Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Michigan, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah and West Virginia.
In addition, supporting amicus briefs have also been filed by the Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence represented by former Attorney General Edwin Meese III, the National Rifle Association represented by former Solicitor General Paul D. Clement, plus the American Civil Rights Union, Academics for the Second Amendment, Cato Institute, the Second Amendment Preservation Association, New Jersey Second Amendment Society and Commonwealth Second Amendment, Inc.
The case is Kachalsky v. Cacace, filed by SAF and five private citizens in the Empire State who are challenging New Yorks arbitrary and capricious permitting system. They are represented by Alan Gura, the attorney who won both the Heller and McDonald cases before the Supreme Court in 2008 and 2010, respectively. The McDonald case was also filed by SAF.

Good to see the usually AWOL National Rifle Association is involved this time.
I suspect that may have to do their latest membership drive and fund raising activities. Perception is everything they say. Speaking of membership drive I need to re-new my membership this month I see.

I need to pay mine too. We need to support what we believe in.
I am amazed,(not really),that the MSM has failed to mention-Feb 15 and Obama’s joke for a birth certificate, his unbelievable selective service forgery, and, his SSN from a CT man are being heard by Supreme Court. The Lord knows, I hope he is waterboarded to the point he tells us who his real handlers are.
My great, great, great grandfathers weren’t required to unload their guns and carry them in lock-boxes when leaving their homes. This would have been ludicrous.
Nothing better than a little gun porn on VD!
