Thanks to reader kaveman, we have an exclusive Brady e-mail alert reaction to The Court announcing it will hear Heller.
Just minutes ago, the U.S. Supreme Court decided to take what could be the most significant Second Amendment case in our country’s history.
Thanks to your support, your Brady legal team had already begun preparing for this announcement, but now our lawyers have swung into high gear to prepare our “friend of the court” brief.
We have a tidal wave of work to do in the weeks ahead and we need your help now.
This fight is so critical that we need to raise $50,000 by November 30.Â And since your gift will be going to our Brady Gun Law Defense Fund, it will be fully tax deductible!
We need your help today to build a strong Brady Gun Law Defense Fund to protect Americaâ€™s gun laws.Â Please give today.
Earlier this year, a U.S. Court of Appeals struck down a gun law as violating the Second Amendment for the first time in American history.Â We believe this decision was judicial activism at its worst and was clearly wrong.
This legal case at its very core is the most important battle we have ever waged.Â The U.S. Supreme Court has the chance to reverse a terribly erroneous decision and make it clear that the American people can adopt restrictions on firearms in their communities.
If the Supreme Court does not reverse the federal appeals court decision, gun laws everywhere could be at riskâ€¦
â€¦from the long-standing machine gun banâ€¦to the 1968 Gun Control Actâ€¦to the Brady background check law.
â€¦to your local and state lawsâ€¦like the ones in California and New Jersey banning military-style Assault Weaponsâ€¦ and many more.
If that happens, then your Brady Center will defend these laws in the courts as we have done so many times in the past against the attacks of the gun lobby.Â But now we must focus on the immediate challenge at hand as we prepare for the fight in the U.S. Supreme Court.Â Please give generously.
Friends of The Court briefs are expensive, and the Brady Campaign isn’t exactly swimming in loot these days. The Brady’s definitely understand that this one is for all the marbles.Â The machine gun ban, and the gun control act of 1968 could be in jeopardy?Â I can only hope!
