And in my continuing program of calling attention to interesting briefs in the McDonald case, here’s a link to the brief of Safari Club International. It’s a solid example of a particularly helpful type of amicus brief, in which a group shares its practical expertise with the Court, explaining how the Court’s decision may impact a particular activity. As the SCI brief details, local gun bans such as Chicago’s can significantly interfere with hunting. For example, nationwide, over a million people use handguns for hunting, yet Chicago residents are forbidden to own these hunting arms. The result is harmful not only to humans, but to wildlife; the brief explains the tremendous role that regulated hunting plays in wildlife conservation and management.
