Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett is considering granting an emergency injunction to stop the implementation of a prohibition on AR-15s and standard-capacity magazines, following a ruling by the 7th Circuit panel that AR-15s are not protected by the Second Amendment.
The National Association for Gun Rights has filed the injunction, referencing the 2022 Bruen decision and expressing confidence in Justice Barrett’s stance on the issue.
The organization emphasizes the importance of fighting for gun rights across various arenas. (Trending: Greta Thunberg Caught on Video Going Full Anti-Semite)

“The 7th Circuit just said that ARs are not guns entitled to Second Amendment protection. It doesn’t get much more outrageous than that – and Justice Amy Coney Barrett appears to agree. She just sent a huge signal that lower-court defiance of Bruen and Heller will not be tolerated,” wrote Hannah Hill Executive Director of the National Foundation for Gun Rights.
“Justice Barrett has been watching this case closely, and last time we asked her for an emergency appeal the 7th Circuit only dodged a SCOTUS smackdown by expediting the case. Well, the 7th Circuit has ruled now – and they got it wrong, big time,” explained Dudley Brown, President of NAGR.
“We look forward to reading Illinois’ attempts to explain why gun bans are consistent with the Second Amendment, and we are confident that this unconstitutional law won’t fly with Justice Barrett,” concluded Brown.
