DIXON- Following the release of the Illinois Supreme Court Decision to uphold legislation enforcing a gun and magazine ban, State Representative Bradley Fritts (R-Dixon) released the following statement:
“Today’s Supreme Court ruling comes as no surprise. As elected officials, we take an oath to protect and defend our Constitution. It is disappointing to see some officials put political ideology ahead of that promise. Instead of ruling on the question of law at hand, the majority opinion is hiding behind a procedural ruling that does not address the constitutional violations present in this legislation.
“The second amendment is clear: the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. This legislation severely restricts the rights and freedoms we are granted as citizens of the United States in our Constitution. I am confident that the United States Supreme Court will ultimately overturn this law and protect law-abiding gun owners in our state.”
