Hagerty Statement on U.S. Supreme Court’s Decision Affirming Americans’ Second Amendment Right

June 23, 2022

WASHINGTON—United States Senator Bill Hagerty (R-TN) today released the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen:

“The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear: Americans have a right to keep and bear arms without government infringement. This decision today rightly makes clear that a law-abiding citizen does not have to provide a special reason deemed good enough by a government official to obtain a concealed carry permit. I will always fight for the Second Amendment right of Tennesseans to protect themselves and their families.”
