25 AGs join amicus brief in support of 2nd Amendment

The Attorneys General of 25 other states have now joined an amicus brief filed by the State of Nebraska asking the US Supreme Court to overturn a San Francisco ordinance which infringes upon Second Amendment rights. The brief was filed in the case of Jackson v. San Francisco in opposition to a city ordinance requiring that guns be stored in a locked container, or with a trigger lock, at all times inside the home except when the homeowner is actually carrying the firearm.

The locked-gun storage requirement ordinance was upheld by the Ninth Circuit Court.

The States joining Nebraska in the amicus brief are Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

Note that Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood has not joined the fight, in spite of his election-year claims to be “pro-Second Amendment.”
