''This is an excellent decision for all Americans—gay and straight. We’re grateful the U.S. Supreme Court re-affirmed the constitutional right for all Americans to own a gun.... Unfortunately, too many LGBT Americans still face the threat of anti-gay violence. We're happy the Supreme Court has affirmed the right for us to protect ourselves and our families from harm. Self defense is not a privilege, it's a right. Gun ownership is a cherished and historic American right enshrined in our Constitution. Today, the right to bear arms lives on for all qualified, law-abiding citizens.''
Log Cabin Republicans President Patrick Sammon, in a statement relating the Supreme Court ruling that struck down the District of Columbia's to anti-gay violence. (LogCabin.org)
