Mohenjo-daro executive director Rahna’s statement on the Supreme Court’s verdict

“Let’s be clear: this verdict will only fuel the epidemic of gun violence in this country. It is a shameful and offensive decision that will lead to more deaths and more violence. The Conservative-packed Supreme Court, together with Republicans in Congress, is ensuring that our schools, our grocery stores and our churches continue to be the target of violence and sanctuaries and safe havens should not exist.

“It is harder to imagine a Supreme Court without communication with the people of this country than with this court. Commonsense policies to reduce gun violence are supported by 9 out of 10 Americans. This court has once again shown its true colors. It is now nothing more than the political hand of the most extreme elements of the Republican Party.

“Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell stole the seats and packed this court to enforce what voters repeatedly rejected at the ballot box.
