Front Sight Firearms Training Institute Student a Plaintiff in U.S. Supreme Court Case
December 23rd, 2007
Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, the nation’s largest gun training school, is the impetus for one of the many citizens of the District of Columbia who have forced the U.S. Supreme Court to accept one of the most significant Second Amendment cases to be considered in the last seventy years.Front Sight is the name of the firearms training industry’s biggest asset. Front Sight Firearms Training Institute is the nation’s biggest, most successful gun training school. Training more students annually than all other major shooting schools combined, Front Sight is considered the professional and authority on all matters gun training- and firearms-related. Not only do Front Sight’s students turn to it for information on the firearms training industry, so do other professionals experts across the field of guns and gun training.
Front Sight and its owner and founder Ignatius Piazza have obviously had their attention laser-focused on the recent U.S. Supreme Court case which will have huge ramifications for the Second Amendment rights of individuals throughout the country. And one of Front Sight’s own, George Lyon, is helping push the case right along.
The back story is this: the U.S. Supreme Court accepted for consideration recently the case of District of Columbia v. Heller, a case which challenges the constitutionality of the District’s legislation to prevent all citizens from owning handguns. Citizens may not use them in their homes, or have them on their persons. Heller brought the case to trial, as did Lyon, who has received firearms training at Front Sight.
Being aware of Front Sight’s opinion on gun training and responsibility, Lyon knew that he had to make his move, make his voice heard and stand up for the Second Amendment rights of all citizens. Front Sight holds that as a person receives training – whether job training, driving training or firearms training – one becomes more able, more responsible, more in-control of what it is he’s getting training in, and outside of that area as well. Take Lyon as an example. As a student of Front Sight he received firearms training and self defense training. Because he knew the benefit and value of having gun training to keep himself and his family safe, he knew he had to take action against the District of Columbia‘s law, and now he’s being heard by the U.S. Supreme Court.
The U.S. Supreme Court has not heard a case as important to Americans’ Second Amendment rights as this one in over seventy years, Court scholars say. And many feel that the U.S. Supreme Court accepting it shows the obvious importance which firearms and gun training assume in America. Though you haven’t heard many presidential candidates discussing it, odds are they’ll start talking about it soon – as the expected January date of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision will fall right before presidential elections, and then candidates will have to announce where they stand: in support of the Constitution or in opposition to it.
The Constitution is quite explicit about what it expects from the federal government, state governments and citizens: citizens must be allowed to carry firearms. The Constitution isn’t as explicit about how much firearms training citizens should get. According to Front Sight, gun training is as vital to an American as vehicle training or job training. As the nation’s eyes turn to the U.S. Supreme Court, Front Sight encourages all citizens to make their voices heard.
