Amy Coney Barrett an Apparent “Strong Choice” for the Supreme Court

Springfield, VA – GOA Senior Vice President Erich Pratt released the following statement after President Donald Trump nominated Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court:

“From a Second Amendment perspective, Judge Amy Coney Barrett appears to be a strong choice.  She has indicated a willingness to examine and apply the Second Amendment as written, by looking at its text and using history as a guide, instead of engaging in the judge-empowering interest balancing that has run rampant in the lower courts.  Gun owners will relish seeing a new addition to the Supreme Court who is ready to hold lower courts accountable for failing to uphold the Constitution and for refusing to follow the Heller and McDonald precedents.”

Erich Pratt, or another GOA spokesperson, is available for interviews. Gun Owners of America is a nonprofit grassroots lobbying organization dedicated to protecting the right to keep and bear arms without compromise. GOA represents over two million members and activists. For more information, visit GOA’s Press Center.
