NRA Takes Case Against Obama’s ATF to Supreme Court
Someone needs to keep Obama in line.
Check it out:
The National Rifle Association (NRA) sued the Obama administration’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) over a federal law denying law-abiding young adults their Second Amendment right to own a handgun. After fighting it out in the lower courts, the NRA has now petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to take the case.
The case is NRA v. BATFE, and the lawyers representing the NRA are the best in the nation on this issue.
Federal law allows all law-abiding adults (meaning ages 18 and over) to purchase a rifle or a shotgun. But that same federal law mandates that you must be 21 or over to purchase a handgun. Law-abiding adults who are 18, 19, or 20 can buy a rifle or shotgun, but are regarded by the federal government as too “irresponsible” to buy a handgun.
