U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' Statement on the U.S. Supreme Court D.C. Gun Ban Decision
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 rightand Arizona traditionof owning firearms. I commend the Court for ruling in favor of restoring our right to bear arms."
