STATEMENT OF MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON DECISION BY US SUPREME COURT IN MCDONALD V. CHICAGO
"The Court's decision today and its decision in 2008 in District of Columbia v. Heller both make clear that we can work to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and terrorists while at the same time respecting the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens. That's what New York City has always done. And, I will continue to collaborate with mayors across the country to pursue common-sense, constitutional approaches to protecting public safety."
