Gun group promises to protect Trump’s concealed carry permit after conviction

A Second Amendment group known as the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) has announced their intention to sue the New York Police Department in defense of former President Donald Trump’s concealed carry license. Trump’s license was revoked in April 2023 following his felony conviction in the hush money trial, yet SAF is determined to challenge this law. They argue that Trump should not lose his Second Amendment rights, as he has no history of violent crime. SAF believes that someone should not lose their gun rights due to a conviction of a non-violent crime and plans to defend Trump against any further prosecution regarding firearm ownership.

Despite New York law mandating that convicted felons are not allowed to possess firearm permits, SAF is prepared to take on the state’s court system to protect Trump’s gun ownership. Possessing a firearm as a convicted felon is a federal crime, but SAF maintains that Trump should not lose his Second Amendment rights. The group is ready to file a lawsuit against the NYPD if they attempt to confiscate Trump’s guns following his conviction. SAF has a history of litigating challenges to restore gun rights for individuals convicted of non-violent crimes, and they are prepared to do so again in defense of Trump.

The Second Amendment Foundation’s stance on gun rights legislation emphasizes the need for reform in existing laws to protect individual’s gun rights. They argue that laws should have some historical connection to the regulation at the time the Constitution and Bill of Rights were written, as outlined in the Supreme Court’s 2022 Bruen ruling. Trump’s situation highlights the inadequacies in current gun control laws, according to SAF, and they are willing to meet New York State or the federal government in court to defend and protect gun rights. SAF has experience litigating challenges to restore gun rights for individuals convicted of non-violent crimes and currently has 60 cases in progress.

SAF’s Executive Director, Adam Kraut, confirmed that the organization has litigated challenges in the past to restore gun rights for people convicted of non-violent crimes and will continue to do so. They have experience in dealing with cases related to gun rights and have successfully navigated legal challenges that have reached the U.S. Supreme Court. With their motto of “Winning Gun Rights One Lawsuit at a Time,” SAF is committed to protecting and securing gun rights for individuals like Donald Trump. The group’s determination to defend Trump’s gun rights despite his felony conviction showcases their dedication to fighting for Second Amendment rights in the face of legal challenges.
