A judge ordered New York State to pay almost a half-million dollars to the National Rifle Association after it lost the Bruen court case in front of the US Supreme Court last summer. Here’s a hint though: The money didn’t come out of the wallets of the politicians who fought against Constitutional rights.
That’s right: it’s not their money and they don’t care.
In a case decided last summer, the Supreme Court ruled that a New York public carry licensing law was unconstitutional and that the ability to carry a pistol in public was a constitutional right guaranteed by the Second Amendment.
The NRA was a party in that case, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, and last week a New York judge ordered the state to pay $447,700.82 in legal fees.
“The NRA regards the $447K award in the NYSRPA V. Bruen case as a pivotal victory, a symbol that justice is definitively on our side,” Michael Jean, NRA’s director of the Office of Litigation Counsel, told Fox News Digital in a statement.
