USA -( In January, NRA and CRPA’s attorneys filed a petition with the United States Supreme Court asking the Court to review the case of Peruta v. California, which seeks to confirm that the Second Amendment protects the right to carry a firearm for self-defense.

Last week, a number of important amicus curiae briefs were filed in support of Plaintiffs’ petition urging the Supreme Court to take the case.

These critical briefs come from a number of diverse and influential sources, including state governors, prominent law enforcement officials and organizations, high-profile civil rights groups, and twenty-six states.

Below are the groups and individuals who filed an amicus brief along with links to each brief:
