Guaranteeing the Right to Keep and Bear Arms

The natural right to self-defense – codified in the Constitution’s Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms – is fundamental to a free people. As a group focused on the future and representing the interests of young Americans, the Millennial Policy Center has a keen interest in the long-term viability of the constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms. The MPC conducts research, publishes policy reports, and files amicus curiae briefs on this important issue.

Amicus Briefs MPC Engaged in the Courtroom

Millennial Policy Center Fellow Joseph Greenlee, Esq., a Second Amendment attorney, is doing yeoman’s work in the courtroom on behalf of the MPC. Joseph has thus far filed one amicus curiae (“friend of the Court”) brief in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals case of Duncan v. Becerra, and additional filings will be on the way soon. Ronald Reagan once said that freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We take this seriously, and we will engage in policy debates for freedom, including in the courtroom.
