ACRU Files Amicus Brief on DC v. Heller
February 11, 2008
Today, the ACRU filed an amicus brief on DC v. Heller, known as the DC Gun Ban Case.
Peter Ferrara, General Counsel for the ACRU, said this,
The Courts cannot treat the Second Amendment as a politically incorrect, disfavored stepchild of the Bill of Rights. Fidelity to the Constitution requires that courts give it the same zealous protection as every other right stated in our founding document. The Amendment is not being read broadly to protect the rights and liberties of the people if it is somehow interpreted to allow the government to adopt a complete ban on handguns and the use of other firearms within the home for self-defense, as in this case.
