May 29, 2014: On Friday, the National Shooting Sports Foundation, Inc. (“NSSF”) and five other groups filed amicus curiae briefs in the pending appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in June Shew et al. v. Dannel Malloy et al. NSSF’s brief, which was prepared by Renzulli Law Firm, supports and expands on the appellants’ Second Amendment and Due Process challenges to Connecticut’s 2013 gun laws (Public Act 13-3, as amended by Public Act 13-220). The brief (which is available here) included NSSF compiled statistics demonstrating that modern sporting rifles and magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds are “typically possessed” and addressed the improper procedure by which the laws were enacted.  The brief also argues that the cosmetic restrictions of the laws will not improve public safety,  and provides the Court with insight as to how the vague provisions of the laws negatively impact FFLs.
