Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes joined with 15 other attorneys general in a lawsuit by the National Rifle Association that seeks to block New York from disbanding the nonprofit organization.
“The New York AG cannot be allowed to wield the power of her Office to discriminate against the NRA simply because she doesn’t like its members’ political views, advocacy, and defense of a fundamental constitutional right,” read the brief.
“The New York AG campaigned for office on a platform of taking down the NRA by any means possible. And both her campaign rhetoric and statements since taking office leave little doubt that she has targeted the NRA because she disagrees with its political speech and zealous defense of the Second Amendment,” the brief continued.
The lawsuit was swiftly denied by the U.S. Supreme Court.
