Gun Owners of America v. Raoul — Petition for Certiorari

Jeremiah Morgan Constitutional Law, Firearms Law, Litigation, U. S. Supreme Court

Today, our firm, with Stephen Stamboulieh, Esquire, filed a Petition for Writ of Certiorari, seeking review of the Seventh Circuit’s holding that the Illinois ban on so-called “assault weapons” does not violate the Second Amendment. Our petition explained how the Seventh Circuit resists the Supreme Court’s decisions on the Second Amendment, instead creating a dichotomy between civilian and military weaponry. The question presented in our petition is:

Whether Illinois’ categorical ban on millions of the most commonly owned firearms and ammunition magazines in the nation, including the AR-15 rifle, violates the Second Amendment.
