ISRA Response to Supreme Court Orders

December 15, 2023

ISRA Response to Recent US Supreme Court Orders

In the last two days, separate cases dealing with the Illinois ban on common firearms petitioned the US Supreme Court for injunctive relief (immediate stay of the ban). These cases, Caulkins v Illinois and National Association for Gun Rights v Naperville, are not part of the ISRA legal strategy to get the constitutional issues surrounding this law to the Supreme Court, but we have been getting asked if it affects our progress. As a result, the ISRA has released the following statement. 

“While the US Supreme Court chose not to intervene immediately on the two State level cases that have advanced to them recently, they did not make any rulings on the merits of those cases. Additionally, there are multiple Federal lawsuits likely headed to the Supreme Court regarding Illinois’s ban on commonly owned firearms. The ISRA is a proud plaintiff in one of those suits and looks forward to having the Supreme Court weigh in on the multiple constitutional issues surrounding Governor Pritzker’s banning and registering of commonly used firearms
