US: IANSA members react to Supreme Court Ruling on 2nd Amendment

On 28 June, the US Supreme Court ruled that the Second Amendment right to bear arms not only limits federal power but also that of state and local governments to regulate guns. According to IANSA member The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, the Court again recognised that the Second Amendment allows for reasonable restrictions on firearms. They added, “The Second Amendment individual right to possess guns in the home for self-defence does not prevent our elected representatives from enacting common-sense gun laws to protect our communities from gun violence."
