For Immediate Release
December 21, 2008
EFI, LLC is pleased to announce that it will be producing rifles commemorating the 2008 landmark United States Supreme Court decision in the case of District of Columbia v. Heller. The Supreme Court ruled in Dick Heller's favor, finding that the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution protects an individual right to keep and bear arms and that a complete ban on handguns is unconstitutional.
"I'm flattered that EFI, one of the best manufacturers of precision rifles, is working to raise funds for us," said Mr. Heller. Money raised from the sale of the commemorative rifles will help support the Heller Foundation formed after the historic June 26 decision, and the U.S. Bill of Rights Foundation, formed several years ago by Dane von Breichenruchardt. The foundations are raising funds to defray the significant costs of litigation to overturn the onerous firearm restrictions recently passed by the Washington, DC City Council. Both foundations are not for profit organizations.
"Winning the first Heller case signaled the start of a very long race. Fully regaining our gun rights will be a marathon, not a sprint, and we'll need a lot of help and support along the way," said Mr. von Breichenruchardt.
Dick Heller holds a Stiller TAC338 action designated for a commemorative rifle.
