Former Arizona Supreme Court Justice and current Attorney General candidate, Andy Gould, on the Supreme Court ruling in New York

Today, the Supreme Court protected the rights of law-abiding citizens to lawfully exercise their Second Amendment rights. The New York law provided government officials with virtually unlimited authority to pick and choose who obtained a concealed carry permit. We would never subject any other constitutional right to such an arbitrary and oppressive law. It bears repeating that the Second Amendment is an express right, clearly guaranteed by the Constitution, and that no government official has the authority to relegate it to a second-class right.
