FORT WORTH, TX (June 18, 2024) – Today, Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) announced the filing of a new federal Second Amendment lawsuit, filed in the Northern District of Texas, challenging the constitutionality of federal gun laws prohibiting firearm possession, storage, and carry at post offices and related properties. The case is captioned Firearms Policy Coalition, et. al. vs. U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland. Case documents can be viewed at FPCLegal.org.

“The Second Amendment protects the individual right to possess and carry firearms outside of their home for lawful purposes, including at post offices. But unlike the USPS, we can promise that Attorney General Garland will receive this message on time,” said FPC President Brandon Combs. Indeed, the U.S. Supreme Court recently agreed to hear one FPC case, and the organization has dozens more strategic lawsuits working their way to the high court. 

The case seeks a declaratory judgment that 18 U.S.C. § 930(a) and 39 C.F.R. § 232.1(l) are unconstitutional under the Second Amendment to the extent they bar the possession and carrying of firearms on United States Post Office property, a preliminary and permanent injunctions enjoining enforcement of 18 U.S.C. § 930(a) and 39 C.F.R. § 232.1(l) to the extent they bar the possession and carrying of firearms on United States Post Office property, costs and attorney’s fees, and any other relief the court deems appropriate.

FPC is joined in the case by FPC members Gavin Pate and George Mandry as well as the Second Amendment Foundation.

Individuals who want to support this and other cases can join the FPC Grassroots Army at JoinFPC.org. For more on FPC’s lawsuits and other pro-Second Amendment initiatives, visit FPCLegal.org and follow FPC on Instagram, X (Twitter), Facebook, YouTube.
