Caitlin Halligan

Obama Pushing “Most Anti-Second Amendment Nominee” in Recent History

Washington, DC --(Ammoland.com)- Senators on Capitol Hill are telling Gun Owners of America that Harry Reid is twisting arms to get support for one of the most anti-gun judicial nominees in recent memory.

Her name is Caitlin Halligan, and she has a long track record in favor of gun control. In fact, one Senate Republican said that she is the most “anti-Second Amendment nominee Obama has ever put forward.”

As New York’s Solicitor General, Halligan was one of the chief lawyers responsible for New York’s baseless and politically motivated efforts to bankrupt gun manufacturers using frivolous litigation. In so doing, Halligan proved that she places liberal political activism above fealty to the law.

Halligan’s public hatred for firearms was only matched by her zealotry inside the courtroom. In a speech on May 5, 2003, Halligan called for “handgun manufacturers [to be held] liable for criminal acts committed with handguns.”

Certainly, no other manufacturer of another item – whether it be cars, baseball bats, or anything else – would be held liable for the criminal misuse of its product. And, as Halligan well knows, the application of that principle to firearms would surely eliminate the manufacture of firearms in America.

After attempts of legal extortion of the firearms industry were repudiated by a bipartisan vote in Congress, Halligan’s office did not let up on attacking gun rights, signing a legal brief calling for New York courts to declare the federal Gun Makers’ Protection Act unconstitutional.

Finally, Halligan, in written testimony submitted to the Senate in connection with her nomination, attempted to conceal the extent of her anti-gun animus.

Halligan’s failure to provide information that would clarify her statements, thus keeping her testimony from being misleading, constitutes “fraud” against the Senate. As such, the only role she should play in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals is the role of a defendant.

But, of course, none of this matters to Harry Reid. He and President Obama are doing what they can to pack the Appeals Courts with radical leftists.

We have to stop this Reid/Obama court-packing scheme. Please act now, as Reid is pushing hard for a vote on Halligan’s nomination.

    1. I never heard of this liberal skank before. The bitch just don’t know the resolve of “real Americans”,who will never give up their Constitutional freedoms.HBH

    2. [...] Good grief!  Some people just won’t do the world a favor and disappear.  They have to keep bothering us. [...]

      Those of you who voted democratic shame on you for what is being done to this country. For the rest of us I hope we can outlast this crowd, where do goofballs come from??

    4. There’s your sign. I knew if she wasn’t from CA, then it was NY. Only way to stop Obama is to keep pressure on your congress. As long as we keep quite, they are going to assume their jobs are safe and can vote anyway they want. Yes, we can vote them out in 2014, but you have to think of the damage they can do before that, if we just sit and wait to vote them out. Once we loose our rights, we are not going to get them back. It ain’t going to happen. The gun grabbers know this. I don’t know about you, but I’m not going away.

    5. I did not vote for the current re-selectee and the proliferation of voter fraud this last election indicates that few did. I personally do not know anyone who did.
      Obama has been proven in an American court of law to be an illegal president. Indicating that anything he has done in office is null and void.
      I do not recognize him or anyone who condoned his activities as being legal by any government standard and all part of a seditious plot to overthrow and destroy the Constitution. That is also called TREASON.
      The only to stop Obama is to stop those who support his traitorous activity.
      Round up the criminals before they use their power to do the same to millions of Americans who only want to live free and maintain the right to self protection.
      If we do not then we will repeat history when government sponsored genocide takes place against Americans.

      How long will it take before we realize that we need to impeach Obama and all of the players in this attack on law abiding citizens of Our sacred Country?
      He has sealed all personal information and continues to “rule”. No one I have talked to knows where he is from nor do they know where he was educated. Hawaiian Governor should be accountable for his actions in preventing the citizens an honest answer to a public question. So lets all look at our options here and make intelligent decisions to the insanity they want to make our country.
