Cuccinelli files friend-of-the-court brief on behalf of Virginia and 13 other states to protect Second Amendment rights

RICHMOND (August 7, 2012) - Today, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli announced that on August 6, 2012, the commonwealth filed a friend-of-the-court brief on behalf of Virginia and 13 other states in Woollard v. Gallagher. This case is an appeal by Maryland from the decision of a federal district court overturning a law that grants handgun carry permits only to persons who can prove a specific, imminent threat greater than that which can be shown by ordinary citizens. Three out of five states in the Fourth Circuit joined this bipartisan effort.

"I am pleased and gratified by the response of the other states. My office is committed to the never-ending necessity of protecting Second Amendment rights," said Cuccinelli.

Cuccinelli only chooses those issues that have no political negatives. I am so disappointed in his refusal to address the illegal immigrant issue in Virginia.

We have gun grabbers in VA, too, so you cannot say the issue has NO POLITICAL NEGATIVES!

Cuccinelli is our AG....it is the Governor that must address illegal immigration, not the AG!
