NRA Working To Preserve High Court Majority

posted on February 9, 2016

By the time the next president is sworn in, four Supreme Court justices—two liberals and two conservatives—will be 77 or older. If all four retire, the effects could go far beyond future gun-rights cases: 123 Supreme Court rulings have been explicitly overruled by subsequent court decisions; 13 percent of those since 2000. Heller and McDonald were decided by one vote, and it isn’t at all unreasonable to think a Supreme Court seeded with anti-gun nominees could reverse those decisions, along with two decades of progress. 

“All the chips are on the table in this election because the impact is who gets the Supreme Court,” NRA President Allan Cors said. 

In advance of this high-stakes election, NRA hopes to raise a budget exceeding $20 million. But we will need your help. To join, renew or upgrade your NRA membership, click here.
