Statement of Jeff Perry on the Supreme Court’s Decision Extending Second Amendment Rights

(A major win for civil liberties.  h/t to Riich Bastien as well.

Coverage of decision here – promoted by Paul R. Ferro)

I applaud today’s Supreme Court ruling that builds on the Heller case and confirms constitutional protections for Americans who own firearms.

The Second Amendment provides every American important guarantees which are designed to make our democracy stronger. These protections enhance personal freedoms and also permit our citizens to defend themselves from tyranny. And they are protections that no individual state should be allowed to dilute.

I strongly support strict interpretation of the Constitution, including strong support for the protections offered by the Second Amendment. In a society where constitutional protections are constantly being eroded, it is refreshing that the Supreme Court chose today to reaffirm such important guarantees for firearm ownership and to extend them to the states by way of the Fourteenth Amendment.
