Barack Obama has Nominated a ANTI-GUN RIGHTS Judge for the Supreme Court
…And it’s a “slap in the face” at gun rights and the Second Amendment!
BELLEVUE, WA – -(AmmoLand.com)- President Barack Obama has picked his nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court…
Can we STOP the nomination of the pro-gun control judicial activist Judge Sonia Sotomayor? YES — but only if YOU join your voice with hundreds of thousands of others, demanding she be rejected!

You see, we already know how this nominee would rule on Second Amendment rights: she doesn’t believe we HAVE any!
Judge Sotomayor, a New York native, ruled on a Second Circuit Appeals Court panel that the Second Amendment is not a fundamental right and does not apply to the states in the case of Maloney v. Cuomo. This ruling is in direct conflict with a Ninth Circuit Court ruling in the Nordyke v. King case in California, that the Second Amendment IS incorporated through the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
So what does it mean, that Obama now nominated Sotomayor to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court? It means that any progress we’ve been making lately… WILL BE REVERSED.
While Democrats in Congress have been making great strides in the gun rights arena, refusing to consider a renewal of the Clinton gun ban, and offering overwhelming bipartisan support for legislation allowing citizens to carry firearms in national parks… President Obama just demonstrated that he prefers judges who OPPOSE Second Amendment rights.
The Supreme Court may take up this issue of incorporation during its next session beginning in October, because attorneys in the Maloney case plan to appeal in late June.
So, JUDGE Sotomayor ruled against our Second Amendment gun rights in Maloney v. Cuomo. If the Maloney appeal is accepted by the Supreme Court… would JUSTICE Sotomayor recuse herself from deliberations?
Judge Sotomayor has also written an opinion that declined to order the release of certain information under the Freedom of Information Act. In one case, according to SCOTUSblog, she wrote that the “unwarranted invasion of privacy” for individuals whose names would be release under an FOIA request outweighed the public interest.
So, JUDGE Sotomayor seemed to rule to protect privacy rights…Would JUSTICE Sotomayor be just as protective of the privacy rights of concealed carry permit holders if a newspaper wanted to publish that information? Or is it more likely that an anti-Second Amendment judicial activist like Sotomayor would reject our privacy rights, in the interest of “protecting the public”?
What do YOU think?
We need to make sure that during the upcoming Senate confirmation hearings, someone asks about her positions on incorporation and the privacy rights of gun owners. Every single one of these Senators need to be told by the American people that the Second Amendment needs to be expanded, not slashed down even more!
We need to FIGHT this nomination in the U.S. Senate — so we’ve set up our Blast Fax system to do just that!
Please, take action right away to STOP this anti-Second Amendment judicial activist from being confirmed to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court!Sincerely yours, Alan M. Gottlieb
