Chabot Applauds Supreme Court Ruling Upholding the Right of Citizens to Keep and Bear Arms

Congressman Steve Chabot (R-Cincinnati) issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court's decision today upholding the Second Amendment as an individual right:

"I applaud the Supreme Court for recognizing and protecting the right of law abiding citizens to protect themselves in their own homes. The decision reaffirms the intent of our Founding Fathers that the rights set forth by the Second Amendment are not limited to the militia but extend to individual citizens."
