Katie Hobbs Shares Outrage at SCOTUS Gun Decision

PHOENIX — In response to the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down New York’s concealed carry gun law, Arizona Secretary of State and gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs released the following statement:

“Like the majority of Americans, Arizonans, and gun owners who support responsible and reasonable safety measures, I am outraged at today’s Supreme Court ruling. As we continue to witness heinous killings across the U.S., including right here in Arizona, leaders continue to refuse to take action, and the Supreme Court’s decision makes protecting our communities that much more difficult. 

“As a mom, I share the concern of my fellow parents who are living in fear every day that their child won’t come home from school or that their family member won’t make it home from the grocery store. We need common-sense gun safety reform right now, so that we can finally end these senseless acts of violence that are murdering our children and taking innocent lives.”
