President Biden is “deeply disappointed” with a Supreme Court gun decision that struck down a New York law restricting access to concealed carry permits Thursday.

Biden released the statement hours after the Supreme Court released its decision. The New York law had required permit applicants to provide specific reasons for needing a firearm.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Since 1911, the State of New York has required individuals who would like to carry a concealed weapon in public to show a need to do so for the purpose of self-defense and to acquire a license,” Biden wrote. “More than a century later, the United States Supreme Court has chosen to strike down New York’s long-established authority to protect its citizens.”


He said, “I urge states to continue to enact and enforce commonsense laws to make their citizens and communities safer from gun violence. As the late Justice Scalia recognized, the Second Amendment is not absolute. For centuries, states have regulated who may purchase or possess weapons, the types of weapons they may use, and the places they may carry those weapons. And the courts have upheld these regulations.”

Biden added, “I call on Americans across the country to make their voices heard on gun safety. Lives are on the line.”

Justice Clarence Thomas wrote in the Court’s opinion, “In this case, petitioners and respondents agree that ordinary, law-abiding citizens have a similar right to carry handguns publicly for their self-defense. We too agree, and now hold, consistent with Heller and McDonald, that the Second and Fourteenth Amendments protect an individual’s right to carry a handgun for self-defense outside the home. Because the State of New York issues public-carry licenses only when an applicant demonstrates a special need for self-defense, we conclude that the State’s licensing regime violates the Constitution.”

  1. Over hundred years, the New York did not protect its citizens, and gun violence still rampant. And I should say most if not all the guns are illegal. So, how did this NY law protect citizens? If the states control and reduce crimes, citizens will be safe.

  2. joejoe is such and uninformed creature.

    Strict gun laws encourage criminals in their bad behavior.

    A law-abiding person carrying a gun can help deter crime, especially in areas where the illogical government has stopped police from effectively doing their jobs.

  3. Maybe with the SCOTUSs decision on NYs law, the House/Senate will ditch the Gun Legislation they are trying to pass. That would be a win win for the 2nd Amendment. LETS GO BRANDON

  4. Part of Biden’s strategy is to remove guns from law abiding citizens, so we will have no protection. Trying to remove all of our freedoms. He is lying when he talks about the people having guns, with no guns the lawlessness continues and the people have no protection.

  5. I’m calling for Joe Biden to be recalled and his administration on the grounds he just told the government of New York to not obey the Supreme Court ruling. The president cannot over rule the highest court of the land.

  6. All I can say is BOO F*^%ng HOO. So sorry (not sorry) you are disappointed…..you have been disappointing people since 1972. DEAL

  7. So the leftist loony demnuts will back abortion that kills over 300k innocent children a year but won’t stand behind lawful citizens the right to protect themselves from criminals with guns that own them illegally. Talk about the biggest hypocrisy known to an American. These legislative asswypes have armed security 24/7 but the American citizens have to take a back set and risk being killed by criminals.
