The Supreme Court has reportedly ruled in favor of gun owners, marking the decision to be one of the most controversial rulings to date.
According to local media reports, the verdict has many gun owners celebrating but the country’s citizens are in mourning after the decision was announced today.
President Joe Biden has reportedly slammed the verdict given by the Supreme Court, which has also gone about striking down the old decision of New York whose restrictions were related to concealed carry permits.
Biden added how the new ruling not only contradicts common sense but is also stated to be against the country’s Constitution.
Clearly, Biden and many other people are not happy because they felt this was a chance to get a law passed after the number of gun violence incidents have increased significantly in the recent month.
The most notable one is related to the elementary school shooting in Uvalde where innocent kids lost their lives after a teenage gunman shot them down using a rifle that he had bought on his 18th birthday.
The decision was a 6-3 and it meant that it would now be struck down the age-old New York State law too.
So many citizens took to social media to express their disappointment on the matter that came in the form of a shocking court ruling.
Similar laws are going to be on the books for various other states including California as well as New Jersey, explained reports.
The news was announced by Justice Clarence Thomas who said the decision was in favor of the majority’s rulings. He also mentioned how the old law prevented so many citizens from practicing their rights that were mentioned in the Second Amendment.
The decision comes at a time when the Senate had been poised for a vote on Thursday to move forward with an advanced bipartisan gun control bill.
