Appeals Court reverses ruling on Tennessee Housing Authority gun ban

The Tennessee Court of Appeals reversed a lower court decision on Friday regarding a Housing Authority gun ban.

The case was supported by the Second Amendment Foundation involving Kinsley Braden.

"(I)n light of the Supreme Court's most recent decision in Bruen and keeping in mind the presumptively unconstitutional status of Columbia Housing's policy based on the Supreme Court's decision in Heller, we conclude that a total ban on the ability of law-abiding residents—like Mr. Braden—to possess a handgun within their public housing unit for the purpose of self-defense is unconstitutional under the Second Amendment," the ruling stated.

"Because Columbia Housing is a government entity acting as a landlord of property it owns, it must establish that its leasehold restrictions on firearms is 'consistent with the Nation's historical tradition of firearm regulation.' The lower court was reversed and the case was remanded for further proceedings consistent with the appeals court ruling," the ruling added.

The reversal offers another case among many in recent months favoring the Second Amendment in the wake of cases seeking new gun limitations.

The case also comes just weeks ahead of the nation's midterm elections, signaling against the importance of upholding constitutional rights.
