WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today applauded the Supreme Court decision protecting the Second Amendment rights of Americans.

 

Graham had signed on to an amicus brief to the United States Supreme Court in the case of the District of Columbia v. Heller.  The brief was signed by Vice President Dick Cheney, 55 U.S. Senators, and 250 members of the U.S. House of Representatives.

 

Graham said:

 

“The Supreme Court decision reinforced what many of us have always believed – the District of Columbia law went too far in restricting the right of citizens to keep and bear arms.  The case involved nothing more than the right of law abiding persons to keep common handguns and usable firearms for lawful self-defense in the home.

 

“This is a historic ruling and I’m very pleased by the Supreme Court’s decision in support of the Second Amendment rights of all Americans.”
