[align=center]Washington[size= Attorney General Signs Amicus Brief Supporting Second Amendment Incorporation
Please Thank Attorney General Rob McKenna![/i]
Two-thirds of the nation’s attorneys general have filed an amicus brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to grant certiorari in the case of NRA v. Chicago and hold that the Second Amendment applies to state and local governments through the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. This bi-partisan group of 33 attorneys general, along with the Attorney General of California in a separate filing, agrees with the NRA’s position that the Second Amendment protects a fundamental individual right to keep and bear arms, disagreeing with the decision recently issued by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.

Attorney General McKenna was one of the many who agrees that the Second Amendment is a fundamental individual right and signed the amicus brief. Please call Attorney General McKenna at (360) 753-6200 and thank him for standing up in support of the Second Amendment.[/b]

Thanks for starting this thread, j2l3. I had meant to start one after I read the story on the main board. I sent a letter to Rob McKenna to thank him.

The list of attorneys general is interesting -- two that surprise me are that Tennessee and Texas aren't on the list.Texas??

Our attorney general needs to hear that we support his efforts.
