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.

One thought on “MAKE IT HURT A LOT MORE: Court orders New York to pay almost half-mil in legal fees for [i]Bruen[/i]”
  1. Wouldn’t it be interesting? Any politician who voted for a bill, or signed a bill into law later found unconstitutional must:
    pay the legal fees of the petitioner/plaintiff
    forfeit their pay for the length of time the unconstitutional law was in effect
    be barred from holding ANY public office elected or appointed for life
    if their position has a pension or any other retirement benefits those are revoked

    Chilling effect ?
