    Second Amendment Foundation (SAF)

    BELLEVUE, WA - A Federal District Court Judge in Massachusetts...granted summary judgment in a Second Amendment Foundation case challenging that state's denial of firearms licenses to permanent resident aliens.

    U.S. District Court Judge Douglas P. Woodcock concluded that "the Massachusetts firearms regulatory regime as applied to the individual plaintiffs, contravenes the Second Amendment."

    The case involves two Massachusetts residents, Christopher Fletcher and Eoin Pryal, whose applications for licenses to possess firearms in their homes for immediate self-defense purposes were denied under a state law that does not allow non-citizens to own handguns. SAF was joined in the case by Commonwealth Second Amendment, Inc. and the two individual plaintiffs. The case is Fletcher v. Haas.

    "This is our fourth court victory this month in our campaign to win back firearms freedoms one lawsuit at a time," said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb. "It is one more step toward repairing decades of Second Amendment erosion."

    In his 41-page ruling, Judge Woodcock wrote, "The Massachusetts firearms regulatory regime, as applied to Fletcher and Pryal, does not pass constitutional muster regardless of whether intermediate scrutiny or strict scrutiny applies The possibility that some resident aliens are unsuited to possess a handgun does not justify a wholesale ban."

    Today is April 1st isn't it?
    RIGHTS don't exist without RESPONSIBILITY!
    If one is not willing to stand for his rights, he doesn't have any Rights.
    I will strive to stand for the rights of ANY person, even those folks with whom I disagree!
    As said by SVG--- "I am not anti-COP, I am PRO-Citizen" and I'll add, PRO-Constitution.
    If the above makes me a RADICAL or EXTREME--- So be it!

    I sent $50.00 to the SAF this month. I'd suggest we all send them something at least once a year.
    Be safe, be prepared, and carry on!

    Saf

    When I needed help with my lawsuit, the SAF was the only organization to help out. Though a lifetime member of the NRA, they never called back. GOA and Wyoming Gun Owners blew me off....

    Yeah, SAF gets my 2A money now.

    I see what the judge did here in talking about the proper level of scrutiny. Just trying to cover all the bases. But it was really improper of him to discuss 2 levels of review. He should have just gone with strict which is the proper method. SAF is the only true friend to gun owners.
