Virginia – -( Gun owners in Virginia will strike out if we don’t bury Senator Warner and Webb in phone calls to vote “NO” on Judge Sotomayor.

How did she strike out?

First, Judge Sotomayor ruled in United States v. Sanchez-Villar (2004) that “the right to possess a gun is clearly NOT a fundamental right.”

Second, this year, Sotomayor was part of a three-judge panel which ruled in Maloney v. Cuomo that the Second Amendment does NOT apply to the states.

But finally, Judge Sotomayor struck out as qualified to be a Supreme Court Justice when she was asked by Senator Tom Coburn if there was a right to self-defense.

Judge Sotomayor said that was an “abstract question.” Sotomayor would NOT answer directly, although when pressed, she equated self-defense with vigilantism!

It is completely unacceptable for the Senate to confirm a judge to the U.S. Supreme Court who does not believe in the rights that are EXPLICITLY stated in the Bill of Rights?

Please call Senators Webb and Warner and urge them to vote “NO” on Judge Sotomayor.

Call Senator Webb at 202 224 4024

Call Senator Senator Warner at 202 224 2023

For Liberty,

President, VGOC to donate

Not that you care, but "fundamental right" has a specific meaning in the context of the Constitution. The Bill of Rights, as written, only limited the power of the federal government. Originally, states were free to violate your rights to free speech, bear arms, etc. That changed when the 14th amendment passed. It effectively incorporated parts of the Bill of Rights that were considered to be fundamental rights against the states. Rather than incorporate everything at once, the Supreme Court has incorporated the rights one at a time. Some, including the Second Amendment and the right to a grand jury,… Read more »
