In response to the United States Supreme Court’s decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Asso­ci­ation Inc. v Bruen, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) issued the following statement:

“The Constitution protects the right of law-abiding Americans to own a firearm for self-defense through the Second Amendment. While states like New York have tried to restrict that right through burdensome laws and regulations, the Supreme Court has, on multiple occasions, recognized it, and today strengthened it. Today’s ruling rightfully ensures the right of all law-abiding Americans to defend themselves without unnecessary government interference.”
