The U.S. Justice Department said it disagreed with the Supreme Court's decision to strike down a New York gun law wherein it declared for the first time that the U.S. Constitution protects an individual's right to carry a handgun in public for self-defense.
"We respectfully disagree with the Court's conclusion that the Second Amendment forbids New York's reasonable requirement that individuals seeking to carry a concealed handgun must show that they need to do so for self-defense," the Justice Department said in a statement after the ruling on Thursday.
