Supreme Court Rejects Gun-Ban Challenges

posted on June 21, 2016

The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected to hear a challenge to Connecticut’s “assault weapons” ban. With Monday’s decision to let the ban stand, the high court left in place a lower court ruling from January 2014 that found the law constitutional. The Connecticut measure passed in April 2013 along with other sweeping gun-control measures.

The Connecticut Citizens Defense League (CCDL), one of the plaintiffs in the case, had hoped the court would “step in and reaffirm that the Second Amendment is not a ‘second-class’ right.” But they vowed to continue fighting.

In a statement from President Scott Wilson, CCDL promised to “renew our challenge to Connecticut’s blatantly unconstitutional ban as soon as there are five Justices sitting on the Supreme Court committed to the proper understanding of the Second Amendment.”

The Supreme Court ruling also applied to a similar ban in New York.
