NEW YORK, NY (June 13, 2024) – Today, Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) announced that it has filed its final brief in support of its motion for summary judgment in Calce v. City of New York, FPC’s lawsuit challenging New York City’s ban on electronic arms like stun guns and tasers. The brief, which also opposed the City’s cross-motion for summary judgment, can be viewed at FPCLegal.org

“Modern arms like stun guns and tasers are protected by the plain text of the Second Amendment and cannot be banned. The Supreme Court made clear that even New York City must abide by the test of the Constitution. We look forward to ending New York City’s abusive and unconstitutional ban on common, constitutionally protected arms,” said FPC President Brandon Combs.

Multiple courts across the United States have found that bans on electronic arms are unconstitutional. But the authoritarians leading the City of New York and its Police Commissioner continue to enforce the City’s unlawful ban on stun guns and tasers. FPC is joined in this case by five individual FPC members and the Second Amendment Foundation. The plaintiffs in this case are represented by David Jensen.
