Exclamation Petition for pro-gun SCOTUS judge.

https://www.gunownersamerica.com/scotus-petition/

Justice Anthony Kennedy gave us an incredible opportunity last week to ensure that our Second Amendment rights “shall not be infringed.”

Add your name and help us send the Senate a clear message that We the People will settle for nothing less than a pro-Second Amendment Justice on the Supreme Court.

While at it may as well sign this one against possible nomination of Brett Kavanaugh:

I take it Kav is no friend of gun rights?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opini...=.2885938ce1cb

It would be interesting to see who NRA and GOA likes the best.

Yes, I want to cement a pro-2nd A majority in SCOTUS.

A strong pro-2nd A SCOTUS could be a good way of overturning CA and other anti-gun laws.

While you may have legitimate concerns about Kavanaugh on those other issues, this thread is about "pro-gun SCOTUS judge". He and Hardiman have written pro-2A opinions, so I think in that regard either are GTG.

I am holding off on the petition against Kav for now.

Whether there is even a better choice than Kav, I don't yet know.

I'm dying to hear who the NRA and GOA endorses.

Do you actually believe a Petition is going to have any effect at this late stage in the game?

Maybe. Maybe not. I am certain it took longer for you to post your reply than it would have to sign it.

Gun Owners of America just emailed me this petition this morning.

I just hope Trumpster gets somebody on our side on the Big Bench.

It would be prudent for the NRA to not publicly endorse any candidate. As it is, whoever Trump chooses, the libs are going to have a hissy fit. No reason to give them and their allies in the fake news business any more fodder for their baseless tantrums.

I have looked for NRA rankings on the front runners for the position but have found nothing. But I think its safe to say a strong constitutionalist will be good for the 2A

I can't really see a pick from Trump who is anything less than pro-gun
in spite of the "take the guns now, due process later" remark a couple months back.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018...-comments.html

We must protect every part of the Constitution, the First A, the Second A and the 5th A as well.

I think it's a shame that law enforcement seizes real property without due process in suspected drug cases as well.

No, DON'T seize guns, cars, homes, persons, etc. without due process!

"Doing something about guns" to appease liberals is cowardly and lame. Stick to your campaign promises, Mr. President, please.

Kavanaugh's decisions and reasoning on other issues can give insight as to how he may view the 2nd Amendment. I believe he was the first jurist to "correct" the government's position on ACA rather than tossing it, calling it a tax rather than a fee. From what I've read, albeit briefly, he gives deference to the government's position. I would be concerned if that is applied in 2nd Amendment cases rather than "tie goes to the individual right".

There is however his dissent in the DC AW ban decision -

https://www.nationalreview.com/bench...nt-gun-rights/

"In Heller, the Supreme Court held that handguns – the vast majority of which today are semi-automatic – are constitutionally protected because they have not traditionally been banned and are in common use by law-abiding citizens. There is no meaningful or persuasive constitutional distinction between semi-automatic handguns and semiautomatic rifles. Semi-automatic rifles, like semi-automatic handguns, have not traditionally been banned and are in common use by law-abiding citizens for self-defense in the home, hunting, and other lawful uses. Moreover, semiautomatic handguns are used in connection with violent crimes far more than semi-automatic rifles are. It follows from Heller’s protection of semi-automatic handguns that semi-automatic rifles are also constitutionally protected and that D.C.’s ban on them is unconstitutional."

What I find interesting is the absence of the contrived term "assault weapon" in favor of plain old semi-auto. It sounds as though he may actually know a thing or to about the subject.

The other fellow in the running, Judge Hardiman, sounds equally strong on gun rights.

That was rather informative, and I agree with your observation about the
lack of the politically charged term “ assault weapon ”.

Thx for posting.
