NRA Update on Second Amendment Legal Cases

The NRA-ILA has announced a new online newsletter, the NRA-ILA Legal Update.

The pace of litigation has only increased since the Court’s 2010 decision in McDonald v. City of Chicago, holding that the right to keep and bear arms is fundamental and protects all Americans.

Many have been brought by other organizations or individuals, or raised by defendants in criminal cases. NRA-ILA’s goal in every case is to consider to strategically advance the rights of gun owners, while not creating bad precedent.

Depending on the situation, NRA's involvement can range from being a named plaintiff in a suit, to funding and supporting a suit, to intervening and becoming a party, to participating as an amicus, or in some instances to being designated by one of the parties in a suit to lead the oral argument.

In addition to news and updates on current cases, future issues of the NRA-ILA Legal Update will include short, plain-English articles explaining some of the key legal concepts that affect legislation and litigation on gun issues.

I have to say that is an excellent page with a wealth of info.

It's basically a simplified highlights report on current RKBA litigation, emphasis placed on simplified. There's no legalese to cipher through, just regular American English. Finally, a RKBA legal site for people who haven't been through law school!!!

Thanks guys!
