Cardin Responds to SCOTUS Conceal-Carry Decision: More Guns on Our Streets Are Not the Answer

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.) issued the following response to the Supreme Court decision in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, Inc. v. Bruen that strikes down New York State’s conceal carry law, which is similar to Maryland’s law.

“Sadly, the conservative justices of the Supreme Court continue to chip away at public safety. Clarence Thomas’ decision in NYSRPA v. Bruen will unnecessarily put more guns on our streets. More guns are not the answer.”
