WATCH: SCOTUS Protesters Can’t Name Pro-Gun Case They Oppose

Supporters of gun control and firearm safety measures hold a protest rally outside the US Supreme Court as the Court hears oral arguments in State Rifle and Pistol v. City of New York, NY, in Washington, DC, December 2, 2019. - The case marks the first time in nearly 10 …

Protesters who flocked to the Supreme Court of the United States Monday could not give the name of the case they came to oppose.

Members of the NRA’s social media team mingled with the protesters and asked them to name the case they were protesting. They received answers such as, “New York gun club vs. New York State,” “Demand action,” and “I’m sorry but I don’t know.”

One protester said, “I don’t recall, it’s a New York City case.”

The case is actually New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. New York City.

On December 1, 2019, Breitbart News reported that SCOTUS was about to hear the case and we noted that it centered on a NYC gun control that prohibited licensed gun owners from transporting their firearms to all seven city-approved ranges. The protesters interviewed by the NRA were present to protest the possibility of a decision against NYC gun control.
