Washington – Rep. Claudia Tenney is leading a group of 168 House Republicans who are urging the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a 110-year-old New York state gun law.
Tenney and her GOP colleagues said today they plan to file a legal brief supporting the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association’s challenge to New York’s law that strictly limits who can carry a gun outside of the home.
The Supreme Court agreed in April to hear an appeal to a lower court ruling that upheld New York’s law. It marks the first time in more than a decade that the nation’s top court will decide a major Second Amendment case.
