Anti Gun Elena Kagan Confirmation Hearing in 2 Weeks
Colorado –-(Ammoland.com)- The confirmation hearings for Elena Kagan, Obama’s anti-gun Supreme Court nominee, have been scheduled for June 28th.
That means NAGR barely has two weeks to mobilize the Filibuster for Firearms! The time to act is NOW.
Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Elena Kagan, says she’s “not sympathetic” to your Second Amendment rights . . .
. . . That may be the understatement of this young century.
That is why I need you to join me in the National Association of Gun Rights’ Filibuster for Firearms.
Weak-willed Republicans like John Kyl of Arizona, are already talking about surrendering to the anti-gun extremists pushing Kagan, WITHOUT A FIGHT.
You see, not only is she “not sympathetic” to your Constitutional rights, Kagan is a hardened opponent of your Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Going back to her time as a Supreme Court clerk in 1987, Kagan supported gun licensing and registration.
As a lawyer in the gun grabbing Clinton Administration, Kagan personally drafted an executive order for Bill Clinton that would ban the importation of semi-automatic firearms.
During her recent confirmation hearings as Solicitor General, Kagan dismissed the notion that the Second Amendment deserved “unlimited protection against governmental regulation.”
Another “unsympathetic” appointment to the Supreme Court could reverse the recent gains we’ve worked hard to achieve to protect our Second Amendment rights, especially when that new justice is an activist against our rights.
Tilting the scale with yet another anti-gun justice could jeopardize our most recent victory at the Court, D.C. v. Heller, where the Court properly held the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is an individual right.
Remember, D.C. v. Heller was a 5-4 victory. One thing is for certain: one more liberal vote on the Supreme Court and D.C. v. Heller would have been a loss.
If we have more appointees like President Obama’s first nominee, Sonia Sotomayor, any ground we have gained in protecting our Second Amendment rights will be lost — maybe FOREVER.
If Kagan is confirmed, she could be that critical liberal vote for the anti-gun lobby and their allies.
That is why I need you to act now. There is no time to wait and see.
Cases involving the Second Amendment and an individual’s Right to Keep and Bear Arms are making their way through the appellate process and will be coming to the Supreme Court.
And, any day now, the Supreme Court could hand down the decision on the McDonald case.
As a lawyer I know how critical the composition of the Supreme Court is to preserving our Second Amendment rights — our ability to protect ourselves, our families and our freedoms.
That is why I need you to join the National Association for Gun Rights’ Filibuster for Firearms.
The anti-gun lobby is pulling out all the stops to get another gun-grabbing liberal on the Supreme Court. Obama’s and his anti-gun allies are already spending MILLIONS of dollars to force Senators of both parties to support Obama’s anti-gun nominee.
We cannot let them go unopposed. Our rights are too important! The National Association of Gun Rights is on the front line of this fight and if we are going to remain in this fight.
The National Association for Gun Rights was founded in 2001 to serve as a grassroots gun rights group focusing on building state-level gun rights groups and lobbying for pro-gun federal legislation. Brown has been a gun lobbyist for more than 17 years. Visit: www.nationalgunrights.org
