Democrat Sen. Richard Blumenthal Warns that Amy Coney Barrett Could Strike Down State Gun Control Laws

Democrat Senator Richard Blumenthal warned that Judge Amy Coney Barrett could be the deciding vote in Supreme Court rulings that overturn state gun control laws in the event of her confirmation during the first round of Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on Monday.

Blumenthal claimed that Barrett would strike down “common sense gun safety laws” as a SCOTUS justice, citing the highly restrictive gun control laws of his state of Connecticut. Connecticut bans most commonly owned semiautomatic rifles, and the state’s laws have been called the “toughest in the country” on gun owners.

Watch Blumenthal’s remarks on Barrett’s generally strong pro-Second Amendment judicial track record here.
