Butler Applauds Supreme Court Ruling for Upholding the Second Amendment

Statement by Assemblyman Marc W. Butler (R,I,C – Newport)
June 28, 2010

The Supreme Court of the United States made history today by upholding the fundamental right of all Americans to bear arms as provided for us in the Second Amendment. As the Assemblyman who represents Remington Arms, I could not be happier that the Supreme Court made this ruling. We need to follow the Supreme Court’s lead here in New York by stopping further attempts to pass egregious anti-gun legislation, such as microstamping, which not only restricts our constitutional freedom but poses a detriment to our economic recovery.
