WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 21, 2024) – Today, Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) issued the following statement regarding the United States Supreme Court’s decision in United States v. Rahimi:

As we explained in our amicus brief, the federal government has no constitutional authority to impose gun control on peaceable individuals at all, let alone the statute at issue in this case. While we disagree with the Court’s holding and dispute federal authority to enforce this regulation, we are encouraged that the Court confirmed the textual and historical analysis required under its Heller and Bruen decisions. We will continue to eliminate disarmament schemes and restore the right to keep and bear arms through our high-impact FPC Law strategic litigation program and other efforts.

Individuals who wish to help us restore the right to keep and bear arms can join the FPC Grassroots Army at JoinFPC.org or make a donation at firearmspolicy.org/donate.
