Today U.S. Congressman Dean Heller (R-NV) made the following statement on the United States Supreme Court's decision to overturn the City of Chicago's regulations on firearms and reaffirm that all Americans have a fundamental right to bear arms.
"As a gun owner and sportsman, I am a strong advocate of our Second Amendment rights. Today's Supreme Court decision reaffirms that that every law-abiding citizen has the right to keep and bear arms in our country. The basic premise of this ruling is that the Constitution does in fact guarantee our right to bear arms no matter where you live in the United States. This decision is a major victory for gun owners and all Americans," said Heller.
