Docket

...

Can the Second Amendment tolerate a lifetime firearm ban on Mr. Mai, a mentally healthy, stable, and law-abiding individual, because of a juvenile involuntary commitment that occurred over twenty years ago?

...

Two decades ago, a Washington state court involuntarily committed petitioner Duy Mai for mental health treatment when he was just seventeen years old. As a result of that commitment, federal law permanently prohibits Mr. Mai from exercising his Second Amendment rights. In other words, Mr. Mai has lost a core constitutional right because of an event that occurred before he had even reached the age of majority. This result is unconscionable and cannot withstand Second Amendment scrutiny.

...

The petition is set for conference on April 23.
