Ted Kennedy Differs from He Who He Has Annointed

KENNEDY SPOKESMAN ON SUPREME COURT DECISION STRIKING DOWN THE D.C. GUN BAN

WASHINGTON, DC— Anthony Coley, spokesman for Senator Edward M. Kennedy, today released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision striking down the District of Columbia’s handgun ban.

“Senator Kennedy has long been committed to reasonable gun control laws, and is concerned that this decision opens Pandora’s box.  Much of the progress we’ve made in making Americans safer by placing reasonable restrictions on the possession of firearms is now in doubt. It’s a bitter irony that this setback comes in the name of a right to self-defense. As Senator Kennedy has repeatedly pointed out, members of the Roberts Court have consistently shown their determination to impose regressive changes in the law despite their claims of judicial humility at their confirmation hearings.”
