High court rejects NRA appeals

WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court has turned away appeals from the National Rifle Association, which complained about resistance by governments and judges to the high court’s recent rulings declaring that Americans have a constitutional right to own a gun.

The justices on Monday let stand rulings that upheld a federal law that prevents young adults ages 18 to 20 from purchasing a handgun or ammunition from a licensed federal firearms dealer and a Texas regulation that prohibits most 18- to 20-year-olds from carrying a handgun outside the home.

The NRA said the laws make it difficult, if not impossible, for young adults to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

The court did not comment in denying the appeals.
