JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Ron and Lucy Davis, parents to slain teenager Jordan Davis, have filed a brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals over gun control issues.
First Coast News learned from the Davis's attorney, John Phillips, that they planned to file an amicus brief Tuesday.
According to Phillips, the same Court of Appeals struck down an Illinois ban on carrying concealed firearms by a vote of 2 to 1.
"Ron and Lucy value the second Amendment but respect entities such as the Brady Center, who counter the efforts of the NRA and their overzealous attempts to continue the armament of this nation," Phillips said.
The Davis' will also be traveling to Washington D.C. to meet with Congressional leaders about gun control rights. Phillips said details of that trip will be coming soon.
Phillips also said a complaint for wrongful death is currently being drafted and will be filed shortly in the case of Jordan Davis. Davis was killed the day after Thanksgiving after an altercation over loud music coming from a car he was riding in.
Michael Dunn has been arrested for the murder of Jordan Davis. He is awaiting trial.
In the past week, Jet Magazine featured the Jordan Davis story. A billboard was also erected featuring Davis's picture and story.
