Gingrey applauds Supreme Court decision to strike down unconstitutional Washington, D.C. gun ban

U.S. Congressman Phil Gingrey released the following statement praising the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that a gun ban in Washington, D.C. is unconstitutional:

“I am pleased to see that the Supreme Court sided with the Constitution today and opened the door for residents of the District of Columbia to have the same Second Amendment rights and protections as the rest of the country,” said Gingrey. “As our nation’s capital city, it is especially important that Washington, DC not infringe upon one of our most basic and fundamental rights. Today’s decision is the most significant ruling in favor of Second Amendment rights in history, and sends a clear message that the Constitution plainly guarantees the right to keep and bear arms.”
