NSSF Condemns Washington Gun Ban, Files ChallengeThe U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois granted a Motion for Preliminary Injunction to block Illinois from enforcing the state’s ban on Modern Sporting Rifles and standard capacity magazines. NSSF is the lead plaintiff in Barnett v. Raoul. NSSF’s case was combined with three other cases. Judge Stephen McGlynn wrote in his opinion granting the preliminary injunction, “More specifically, can PICA [Protect Illinois Communities Act] be harmonized with the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and with Bruen? That is the issue before the court. The simple answer at this stage in the proceedings is ‘likely no.’” The judge further noted that the law appears to have been written in spite of Heller and Bruen and not in light of those U.S. Supreme Court holdings.
