Expansion

The US Supreme Court on Thursday struck down a New York law restricting gun rights. The Court ruled that Americans have a fundamental right to carry a gun in public, and limiting this right violates the 14th Amendment to the Constitution. At the same time, after this decision, Joe Biden has expressed disappointment over the court’s decision.

Joe Biden very disappointed with the verdict

President Joe Biden said in a statement that he was deeply disappointed by the Supreme Court’s decision in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. He said that this decision is against both common sense and the Constitution and has caused a lot of trouble to all of us. Also in the statement, Joe Biden also urged states to implement so-called commonsense gun laws.

A ruling by court judges will eventually allow more people to legally carry weapons on the streets of major US cities and elsewhere, including New York, Los Angeles and Boston.

Recent shootings in several US cities

The court’s decision comes at a time when the US Parliament is actively working on weapons legislation following the recent mass shootings in Texas, New York and California. However, the Biden administration also had to face opposition regarding the arms law.

More than 390 million guns are held by civilians in the US. In 2020 alone, more than 45,000 Americans died in shooting-related incidents, including homicide and suicide. The decision comes at a time of heightened support for gun control after major mass shootings.

Let us tell you that on May 24, there was a major shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, in which 19 children and two teachers were killed. After which the voice started rising that a law should be made on the ban of guns in America.
