Rep. Estes Supports Second Amendment Supreme Court Case
WASHINGTON—Congressman Ron Estes (R-Kansas) has signed on to an amicus curiae brief supporting the U.S. Supreme Court case New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. City of New York. The case, brought by the NYSRPA, challenges New York City’s law banning the transportation of a lawfully owned firearm by city residents to any location outside city limits, even if it’s a second home or shooting range.
“This case has the potential to impact not just New Yorkers, but Kansans and Americans nationwide in exercising their right to keep and bear arms,” said Rep. Estes. “By joining this amicus brief, we are sending a strong message that the constitutional right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
The case marks the first Second Amendment case heard by the Supreme Court in nearly a decade. Rep. Estes joined more than 100 Members of the U.S. House who have signed on to the amicus brief supporting the case.
Ron Estes is a 5th generation Kansan and represents Kansas’ 4th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. He serves on the House Committee on Ways and Means.
