Good News

from NRA-ILA:
Ohio Attorney General Signs Amicus Brief Supporting Second Amendment Incorporation
Please Thank Attorney General Richard Cordray!

Two-thirds of the nation’s attorneys general have filed an amicus brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to grant certiorari in the case of NRA v. Chicago and hold that the Second Amendment applies to state and local governments through the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. This bi-partisan group of 33 attorneys general, along with the Attorney General of California in a separate filing, agrees with the NRA’s position that the Second Amendment protects a fundamental individual right to keep and bear arms, disagreeing with the decision recently issued by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.

Attorney General Cordray was one of the many who agrees that the Second Amendment is a fundamental individual right and signed the amicus brief.

I was beginning to wonder about the guy

Prosecutor Dave Yost, the Republican candidate for Attorney General, welcomed Cordray's agreement that the Second Amendment applies to the states, but suggested Cordray has changed his position for political purposes.

"It seems obvious that the Second Amendment applies to the states," Yost said. "But this is the same man who argued that the Brady Act was constitutional when he was Solicitor General. His decision today is more about politics and vote-seeking than it is an evolution in his legal thinking."

[The case involving the Brady Act was the appeal of Mack v. U.S., 66 F. 3d 1025 (1995)]
