Judicial Education Project Files Amicus Brief Urging Supreme Court Review of Drake v. Jerejian

Yesterday the Judicial Education Project filed an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to hear Drake v. Jerejian, an important case about the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. We argue that New Jersey has continued to deny its citizens their Second Amendment rights by woefully misinterpreting the Supreme Court’s holdings in District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v.
