Despite two horrific mass shootings in May, the court sided with advocates who said the US Constitution guarantees the right to own and carry guns in public places.

The US Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that Americans have a fundamental right to own a gun in public. Let us tell you that the decision of the US Supreme Court has come at a time when the incidents of gun firing are increasing in America. Often common people become victims of this in schools and markets.

The court’s decision came 6-3. The decision struck down a more than a century-old New York law that required a person to have a valid reason to obtain a permit to own a gun for self-defense. This decision of the court will allow legal arms to be carried in major cities and places of America.

Democratic President Joe Biden expressed his dismay at the decision, saying it was contrary to both common sense and the Constitution. This has bothered all of us a lot. Joe Biden said we should do more as a society, not less, to protect our fellow Americans. I call on Americans across the country to raise their voices on gun safety.

Despite two horrific mass shootings in May, the court sided with advocates who said the US Constitution guarantees the right to own and carry guns in public places. Earlier in 2008, the court ruled that Americans have the right to keep guns at home for self-defense.

In May, an 18-year-old gunman opened fire indiscriminately inside a classroom at an elementary school in the US state of Texas, killing 21 people, including 19 children, and injuring several others. After this the attacker was killed in police action. Due to the incident, US President Joe. Biden made a passionate appeal to lawmakers to tighten arms laws to prevent such incidents.
