Bloomfield Press News

Bloomfield Press plans to file an amicus curiae (friend of the court) brief in the Chicago gun-ban case, McDonald v. Chicago. Joining the brief are independent gun-rights groups from Arizona, Texas and Virginia,* and Sheriff Richard Mack, the sheriff who filed and won the original Supreme Court case against the Brady bill.

According to publisher Alan Korwin, "Newly confirmed Justice Sonia Sotomayor said during her Senate hearings that she was unaware of any self-defense cases at the High Court, and that has gone unchallenged. The Court has heard 14 self-defense cases, it has consistently and unambiguously covered all major elements of self-defense law, and state laws are in perfect harmony with the Court's rulings. This had to be brought to the Court's attention." More news soon. *(Arizona Citizens Defense League, Texas Concealed Handgun Ass'n., Virginia Citizens Defense League.) Self-defense summaries:
