Reacting to on the Supreme Court ruling on guns Biden did not hide his disappointment.
“I am disappointed. There is one little bit of solace. The majority opinion has laid out that it affects not every state,” he said, adding that there is phrase in the decision that is notable where only certain legislation is affected depending on whether they used the term “shall.”
“The gun laws in 40 of these states are still in place based on this decision. Not good enough. I think it’s a bad decision. I’m disappointed,” he said.
The Supreme Court on Thursday killed a New York gun law that places restrictions on carrying a concealed gun outside the home.
This ruling makes the the widest expansion of gun rights in a decade.
“Because the State of New York issues public-carry licenses only when an applicant demonstrates a special need for self-defense, we conclude that the State’s licensing regime violates the Constitution,” Justice Clarence Thomas said in the ruling.
