Sen. Cruz Issues Statement Praising the Supreme Court for Guaranteeing the Right to Carry a Firearm


"This case’s vindication of the right to carry a firearm for self-defense outside the home is an ever-present reminder of our duty as citizens to defend our constitutional rights from brazen attacks from the left.”

Texas Insider Report: AUSTIN, Texas – (WASHINGTON, D.C.) – U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on The Constitution of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today issued the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen case:

“Today, the Supreme Court upheld our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms by striking down a New York law that effectively prohibited a citizen from carrying a handgun outside the home.  The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that New York’s law was unconstitutional because it unquestionably infringed on our Second Amendment and Fourteenth Amendment rights.

"I was proud to lead an amicus brief on behalf of 24 of my Senate colleagues making these exact arguments. This case’s vindication of the right to carry a firearm for self-defense outside the home is an ever-present reminder of our duty as citizens to defend our constitutional rights from brazen attacks from the left.”
