Robinson v. US
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.

Peruta v. California
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.
