Shelby: Today’s Ruling is a Great Victory for the American People

U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today made the following statement after the Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling to strike down the District of Colombia’s 32 year old ban on handguns:

“The right to keep and bear arms belongs to every law-abiding American and I applaud this landmark decision,” said Shelby.  “I have always been a firm believer in an individual’s right to own firearms and today’s ruling is a great victory for the American people and the Second Amendment.”
