Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich: “Our office takes no position on what the proper evaluation criteria or what the specific requirements for issuing a handgun permit in each state should look like,” Anderson said. “But we also don’t believe the government should be in the position of deciding which law-abiding and legally-qualified citizen gets to exercise their Second Amendment right.”
Arizona and 22 other states are asking the highest court in the nation to weigh in on gun rights after a New Jersey resident was denied a permit to carry a firearm outside of his home.
The U.S. Supreme Court has not heard a case concerning the Second Amendment for nearly a decade, according to USA TODAY. However, last week, the court agreed to hear a case concerning the transportation of firearms outside city limits.
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich and 22 other state legal officials are now asking the court to take up this second case, Rogers v. Grewal, out of New Jersey.
