    WAGC news Bulletin: WAGC S VS L AB


    Women Against Gun Control is honored to submit an Amicus Curiae Brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to hear an appeal from the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals' decision that the Second Amendment does not guarantee an individual right. That case was Silveira vs. Lockyer, 312 F.3d 1052 (9th Cir. 2003).

    Howard J. Fezell, Esq. of Frederick, Maryland (a former NRA Board Member) graciously volunteered his time to write this amicus brief. It is very concise, clear, and poignant in detailing reasons why women, in particular, should have access to firearms for self-defense. The data he cites from the FBI and Bureau of Justice Statistics show how restrictions on gun ownership have a disparate effect on women.

    WAGC's brief was filed on Wednesday, July 30, 2003. This amicus brief is of the HIGHEST caliber. That's why Women Against Gun Control wanted to share it with you. Please feel free to circulate it to as many people as possible. It is in PDF Format.

    On Friday, August 1, 2003 we were informed that the NRA has decided to file a brief in support of Silveira's Petition For Writ Of Certiorari. The Court will rule on the cert petition in or around October.

    Best regards,

    Women Against Gun Control
