Today, the Supreme Court ruled that the Second Amendment’s right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed by public safety bureaucrats and affirmed what Congresswoman Boebert argued in the amicus brief she signed.

Congresswoman Lauren Boebert stated, “I am so grateful that Justice Thomas led a 6-3 majority in ruling that New York bureaucrats do not have the power to arbitrarily deny someone the right to defend themselves. This case struck down New York’s gun laws in which Americans are only allowed to carry handguns outside of their homes if government bureaucrats are persuaded that they have a proper cause. This is the biggest legal victory for the Second Amendment in over a decade, and I’m proud to have been a part of it. For the first time in my lifetime, millions of Americans trapped in may issue states will finally have access to their Second Amendment right to self-defense.”

Background:

Congresswoman Boebert signed an amicus brief to the United States Supreme Court for this case in July of 2021.
