Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Bill Owens released the following statement praising today's ruling by the Supreme Court in the case McDonald v. Chicago, a challenge to the city of Chicago's gun control law:

"I applaud this decision by the Supreme Court to uphold the federally protected right of every American to keep and bear arms. I am a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and I am glad to see that it cannot be infringed upon by state and local governments," said Owens.

Congressman Owens is a member of the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus and recently signed on to a bipartisan amicus curiae brief urging the Supreme Court to overturn Chicago's unconstitutional ban on firearms.
