New York State Rifle & Pistol Association (NYSRPA) applauds the SCOTUS decision incorporating the 2nd Amendment to the states in the case of McDonald v. Chicago.

The right to keep and bear arms, like the right to self-defense itself, is a right that is deeply rooted in this nation’s history and traditions, and it is implicit in the Anglo-American concept of ordered liberty.

While the ramifications of this case will be played out in courts for years to come, one thing must be made perfectly clear: Laws pertaining to the 2nd Amendment must be held to the same standards of strict scrutiny as laws pertaining to the 1st Amendment. Nothing less is acceptable.
