Featuring a keynote by New York Attorney General Letitia James, legal experts discuss New York State Rifle & Pistol Association (NYSRPA), Inc. v. Bruen, the NRA-backed Supreme Court lawsuit seeking to gun America's gun safety laws.
On November 3, the New York affiliate of the NRA asked the Supreme Court to invalidate New York’s long-standing “good cause” requirement to be granted a permit to carry loaded handguns for use in armed confrontation in public spaces. This case, called NYSRPA, Inc. v. Bruen, presents the new conservative majority on the court with an opportunity to radically expand the scope of the Second Amendment, threatening to roll back common-sense gun safety laws across the country. The stakes for the gun violence prevention movement have never been higher.
The conversation includes a keynote address by New York Attorney General Letitia James, followed by a panel featuring Anisha Dasgupta, New York deputy solicitor general, Jon Lowy, Brady Legal chief counsel and vice president, Joseph Blocher, Duke Law, Dahlia Lithwick, Slate, and Kate Shaw, Cardozo Law.
