It’s unclear whether the NRA-ILA will pursue a legal challenge, or if it’s simply waiting for the NRA to do the right thing.
But even if the association is unable to enforce the law, it’s likely to find itself at odds with the states that have passed similar laws.
The American Kennels Association said it would have no comment on the situation until the Supreme Court rules on the case.
But in an email, NRA-LAWS Executive Director Dan Fleming said that the association’s position is clear: the Second Amendment is about self-defense, not hunting.
“The NRA is the only organization with the power to protect this right,” Fleming wrote.
“NRA-ILA has been clear that it has no intention of interfering with a state law prohibiting hunting or other hunting activities.”
