The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), along with partners such as the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus and Firearms Policy Coalition, has responded to Minnesota’s appeal against SAF’s victory in the Worth v. Harrington lawsuit, which challenges the state’s prohibition on young adults aged 18 to 20 carrying firearms. The case was initiated in June 2021 before the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
The central issue is whether Minnesota’s restriction on firearm carry for young adults violates the Second Amendment. US District Judge Kathleen Menendez previously ruled in early 2023 that the state’s law preventing young adults from obtaining carry permits is unconstitutional.

SAF’s founder, Alan M. Gottlieb, emphasized the organization’s confidence in winning at the Appeals Court level, criticizing the state’s persistence in upholding an unconstitutional law. Adam Kraut, SAF’s Executive Director, underscored that the Second Amendment applies to all Americans, regardless of age, referring to precedent-setting cases like Heller (2008) and Bruen (2022).
Minnesota’s declining ranking (38th) in the Guns & Ammo Best States for Gun Owners list reflects its increasing anti-gun sentiment. The article predicts a further negative shift in the state’s ranking due to the growing influence of gun control policies. It suggests that Minnesota might evolve into another staunchly anti-gun jurisdiction unless there’s substantial resistance against these measures.
In conclusion, the Second Amendment Foundation and its partners have submitted a response brief to Minnesota’s appeal in the Worth v. Harrington case, reiterating their stance that the prohibition on young adults carrying firearms infringes on the Second Amendment. They express confidence in prevailing at the Appeals Court level and reference previous legal decisions that support their position. The article also highlights Minnesota’s diminishing pro-gun stance and anticipates a worsening situation unless efforts are made to counteract the trend of stricter gun control.
