Gun Owners Defending Suppressors in Court
On August 25, Gun Owners of America and its foundation, Gun Owners Foundation filed an amicus brief in support of a petition to the Supreme Court, challenging Maryland’s 2013 ban on so-called “assault weapons” and “large capacity magazines.”
GOA and GOF filed an earlier amicus brief in this case on November 12, 2014, when the case was known as Kolbe v. O’Malley.

On July 24, Gun Owners and Gun Owners Foundation filed a brief in the U.S. Supreme Court in the case Robinson v. United States.
This brief urges the High Court to review a court of appeals decision that authorizes the police to search and disarm a gun owner at a traffic stop — even if the firearm is being lawfully carried under state law.
On June 26, 2017, the Supreme Court denied the petition for certiorari in Peruta v. California. We filed amicus briefs on your behalf in both the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and on petition to the Supreme Court.
In our most recent filing with the Supreme Court, we had taken the controversial position that our “friends” litigating the case in California had bartered away Second Amendment rights in an attempt to appear reasonable to judges. We had gone back and forth about whether we should even file a brief and, if we did, whether it in fact should oppose the granting of the petition.
On June 30, 2016, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit issued its unanimous (attached) opinion in Hollis v. Lynch, upholding the federal machinegun ban, the same as the Third Circuit did in Watson v. United States.
In a horrible, poorly reasoned decision, the Fifth Circuit claimed that the federal machine gun ban does not violate the Second Amendment. It came to this conclusion based on several blatant misreadings of the Supreme Court’s decisions in Heller and Miller.
Soto v. Bushmaster
May 30, 2017
Gun Owners of America and Gun Owners Foundation filed an amicus brief in the Connecticut Supreme Court in support of gun manufacturers Bushmaster and Remington, who had been sued by the families of the Sandy Hook shooting victims.
