Kansas and other states ask Supreme Court to consider gun rights case

Brief challenges restrictions on accessories

The Kansas attorney general and seven other attorneys general are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to hear an appeal of a U.S. District Court ruling that held firearms accessories fall outside the scope of the Second Amendment.

The attorneys general asked the Supreme Court to review the 10th Circuit Court’s decision in a case that arose from Kansas involving an individual who possessed a sound suppressor.

The brief claims the 10th Circuit’s decision is so sweeping that, under its logic, “Congress could ban all ammunition without violating the Second Amendment.”

Kansas was joined in its brief by Arkansas, Idaho, Louisiana, Montana, South Carolina, Texas and Utah.
