NRA Supports Supreme Court Petition Against Massachusetts Semi-Auto Ban
On Monday, the plaintiffs in the NRA-supported case of Worman v. Healey filed their petition for writ of certiorari before the Supreme Court of the United States. This case challenges Massachusetts’s unconstitutional ban on commonly-owned, semi-automatic firearms as a violation of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, citing the Supreme Court rulings in District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago.

I think this would invalidate many state bans of evil black rifles if we win.

Has the Supreme Court agreed to hear this case?

Chief Justice Roberts has an irritating habit of refusing to hear gun related cases.
I will never apologize for being an American.

They used to say that they avoid them if they don’t think they have the votes

That's what they say, but If the case isn't overturned, the lower court decision stands.
