ALR289 – It’s Not About Sensitive Places

On November 3, 2021, the Supreme Court heard arguments in New York Rifle & Pistol Association vs. Bruen — a case that could make “shall issue” the law of the land around the nation. In this episode, Lloyd and Pastor Bennett review a hysterical amicus brief, filed by a group of Leftist religious organizations, supporting New York's “may issue” concealed carry permit law.

An even more in-depth analysis of the brief is available exclusively for Reformation Gun Club members. Click here and come join us for as little as $12/year.
