U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' Statement on the U.S. Supreme Court D.C. Gun Ban Decision

Press Release

Date: June 26, 2008
Location: Washington, DC
Issues: Guns

Today the U.S. Supreme Court released a decision to strike down the District of Columbia's ban on handgun ownership as unconstitutional. U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords released the following statement in support of the court's ruling:

"As a gun owner, I am a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. In February, I was proud to sign the Amicus Brief in District of Columbia v. Heller asking the Supreme Court to uphold the lower court ruling that overturned the long standing DC gun ban.

This is a common sense decision that reaffirms the Constitutional right—and Arizona tradition—of owning firearms. I commend the Court for ruling in favor of restoring our right to bear arms."
