Aderholt takes stand for gun owners against ‘leftwing activists’ in landmark NRA case

Second Amendment

U.S. Rep. Robert Aderholt is joining several of his Republican colleagues in fighting back against what he believes is an attempt to infringe on the free speech rights of gun owners.

Aderholt (R-Haleyville) joined an amicus brief led by U.S. Sen. Ted Budd (R-N.C.) and U.S. Rep. Richard Hudson (R-N.C.) in the Supreme Court case NRA v. Vullo.

The case involves Maria Vullo, the Superintendent of the State of New York’s Financial Services, and her formal guidance issued to every bank and insurance company in the state urging them to “sever their ties” with the NRA.

She also promised leniency to insurers that stopped doing business with the NRA, and announced consent orders with longtime NRA insurers that imposed multimillion dollar fines on these insurers and barred them from engaging in future lawful business partnerships with the NRA.

“I was proud to join this amicus brief led by [Sen. Ted Budd] and [Rep. Rich Hudson],” Aderholt said. “Gun owners and groups don’t just have to defend our Second Amendment rights, but also our First Amendment rights from leftwing activists.”

The brief argues that it not only infringes on the rights of gun owners, but also is an attack against states’ rights.

“This case presents other constitutional problems,” the brief states. “In their pursuit of the NRA and gun rights advocates, Cuomo, Vullo, and DFS used New York’s insurance laws to project power outside the State’s boundaries. Their agenda raises federalism concerns.”

U.S. Rep. Barry Moore (R-Enterprise) also signed on to the brief, making it 18 Senators and 62 Representatives who signed it.
