Supreme Court Denies Emergency Appeal in NAGR Case to Overturn Illinois’ Gun Ban

Dec 14, 2023

The Supreme Court denied an emergency injunction today filed by the National Association for Gun Rights, to stop enforcement of a ban on AR-15s and standard-capacity magazines.

Today’s ruling does not impact the case itself. NAGR asked for an emergency stay of the Illinois gun ban while the case was at the 7th Circuit and through future appeals on the merits to the Supreme Court.

“A right delayed is a right denied, and every day these gun bans are enforced is a travesty to freedom. We will be back to the Supreme Court as soon as our legal team finishes drafting our cert petition, and they will have to decide if they really meant what they said in Heller and Bruen,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights.

Emergency relief is always a long shot and the Supreme Court has preferred, since Bruen, to wait until gun rights cases are appealed on the merits before taking them up.


“Most emergency appeals don’t even get in the door. Ours got the attention of the Supreme Court, and a demand for explanation from Illinois – twice. This is a very encouraging sign that the Supreme Court is waiting for the moment of maximum effect to step in and rule on the unconstitutionality of gun bans,” said Hannah Hill Executive Director, National Foundation for Gun Rights (legal arm of the National Association for Gun Rights.)


         The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation’s largest “no compromise” pro-gun organization, with 4.5 million members nationwide.
