'Deeply disappointed' with Supreme Court's gun ruling, says US President Biden

US President Joe Biden on Thursday said that he was "deeply disappointed" by a Supreme Court decision

that struck down a New York law restricting gun-carrying rights.

"I am deeply disappointed by the Supreme Court’s ruling in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen," Biden said in a statement.

"This ruling contradicts both common sense and the Constitution, and should deeply trouble us all," he added.

Biden in the statement also urged states to continue enacting and enforcing so-called "commonsense" gun laws.

The court ruled that Americans have a fundamental right to carry firearms in public

and that limiting that right violates the 14th amendment of the Constitution.

In 2020 alone, more than 45,000 Americans died from firearms-related injuries including homicides and suicides.
