Supreme Court declines “Injunction Pending Appellate Review” Request from NAGR

May 17, 2023

Naperville, IL – Today, the Supreme Court denied a request from the National Association for Gun Rights to block Illinois’s assault weapon and standard capacity magazine bans, but only after the 7th Circuit expedited review of our preliminary injunction motion.

NAGR had requested the Supreme Court step in and halt enforcement of the ban before the appeals court’s preliminary injunction ruling in order to bring relief to plaintiff Robert Bevis whose business is being severely impacted by the laws.

“Any action the Supreme Court would have taken at this point would only have been temporary and not on the merits of the case itself. Clearly, the Supreme Court is watching the issue closely and we look forward to appealing very soon on the merits if the 7th Circuit rules against us – as the signs currently point to,” said Hannah Hill, Executive Director of the National Foundation for Gun Rights, legal defense arm of the National Association for Gun Rights.  

Plaintiff Robert Bevis and Dudley Brown NAGR President

“Commonly owned weapons are protected by the Second Amendment and banning them has to stop. It will ultimately be decided by the Supreme Court, which will very soon be called upon to enforce their Bruen precedent on a nation full of lower courts determined to ignore both Bruen and the Second Amendment,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights.

“We look forward to taking our case to the Supreme Court where we will prevail,” said Brown.

The National Association for Gun Rights’ legal defense arm, the National Foundation for Gun Rights, works to expand pro-gun precedents and defend gun owners. For more information on the National Foundation for Gun Rights please visit their website at https://gunrightsfoundation.org// .

The National Foundation for Gun Rights is a 501(c)(3) organization that exists to expand pro-gun precedents and defend gun owners in the courts.
