REP. CALVERT PRAISES SUPREME COURT DECISION TO PROTECT SECOND AMENDMENT GUN RIGHTS
Today Congressman Ken Calvert (R-CA) issued the following statement on the opinion by the U.S. Supreme Court that the Second Amendment is an individual right of all Americans and not reserved only for state militias. The decision overturns the District of Columbia gun ban.
"The Second Amendment is rooted in the integral right of the individual to protect himself or herself from a tyrannical government. Today the Supreme Court reaffirmed that right which will now be extended to the residents of the District of Columbia. I commend the five Justices of the Supreme Court who strictly interpreted the U.S. Constitution and returned the right to bear arms to the Nation's Capital."
