Daines Statement on SCOTUS Decision to Defend Second Amendment Rights

U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today issued the following statement after the Supreme Court announced its decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen to uphold Americans’ right to keep and bear arms without having to prove a specific need to exercise their constitutional right.

“The United States Supreme Court’s decision today reaffirms what we already knew: the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. This decision puts an end to government intrusion into the lives of Americans looking to defend themselves and their families, and this is a huge win for law-abiding gun owners across America,” Daines said. “Americans should never have the burden to prove why they should be allowed to exercise their constitutional rights.”
