Burr Statement On Supreme Court Ruling On Second Amendment Rights

U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) released the following statement today in response to the Supreme Court's ruling on District of Columbia v. Heller:

"I applaud the Supreme Court's decision today. The Second Amendment right to bear arms is a fundamental right of law-abiding citizens. The Court made the right decision today because federal, state and local governments should not be able to arbitrarily take away freedoms that are reserved for the people by our Constitution."
