Reid Statement On U.S. Supreme Court 2nd Amendment Ruling

Washington, DCNevada Senator Harry Reid today made the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on the case of McDonald v. Chicago:
“With today’s ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court has helped ensure that the 2nd Amendment rights of Americans will be protected in all corners of our country.  The right to bear arms is one of the essential freedoms on which our country was founded.  I am pleased that the high court has taken steps in both the Heller and McDonald cases to guarantee this fundamental right.  I supported individual gun rights in a bipartisan congressional amicus brief to the court, and I am glad they agreed with my position.”
