Chicken Little Meets The Federal Court

posted on June 9, 2015

A tidbit of good news: The Brady Campaign got hammered flat in their lawsuit against Kansas Governor Sam Brownback over a 2013 measure.

The law made it a felony for federal officials to enforce federal regulations on Kansas firearms and ammunition. Unlike so many, the Kansas statute is abundantly clear: “A personal firearm, a firearm accessory or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately and owned in Kansas and that remains within the borders of Kansas is not subject to any federal law, treaty, federal regulation or federal executive action.” The Brady folks tried to extrapolate this to an “unacceptable risk of future gun violence on the organization’s Kansas-based members.”

But in dismissing the suit, U.S. District Court Judge Julie Robinson described the Brady arguments as “wholly conjectural.” That’s court-speak, by the way, for made up—like virtually everything else the Brady Campaign claims.

Well done, Your Honor.
