Washington, DC – -(Ammoland.com)- For weeks (including herehereherehere, and here), we have been warning of the grave danger to your rights posed by Barack Obama’s choice to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court.

With typical arrogance, Obama deliberately chose the candidate with the most anti-gun record of his short-list of finalists. Now he and his usual supporters in the media and academia seek to mock and disparage the principled stand pro-freedom groups, including your NRA, are taking against Garland.

Senate leadership has held firm in their determination to hold the line against letting Obama tip the court to his ideological advantage.

Make no mistake, Obama has a carefully planned strategy to advance Garland’s nomination that (in typical fashion) depends on exploiting polite acts of goodwill, like the courtesy meetings some Senators have granted to Garland. An article in the New York Times candidly detailed how Obama’s strategists see such meetings as the vital first step in their plan.

Like the snake oil salesmen they are, they know they have to first get their foot in the door before they can begin making their pitch.

Garland’s antigun ideology is clear from his record. While serving in his capacity as an appeals court judge, for example, Garland voted to give D.C.’s unconstitutional gun ban a second chance. He also cast a vote to uphold a Clinton-era policy of documenting and registering law-abiding gun buyers, despite federal statutes passed specifically to prevent this.

National registration. The individual right protected by the Second Amendment. Gun bans. These are issues that cut to the heart of the right to keep and bear arms. And whenever he had the chance, Garland was on the wrong side of them.

We’ve seen before the theatrical fury and disbelief that Obama and his surrogates display when they don’t get their way, and we’re seeing it again now. That’s why it is critically important for your Senators to know they have your support in standing against Garland’s nomination.

Obama and his cronies know that the Supreme Court’s support for the individual right to keep and bear firearms under the Second Amendment is (at best for pro-gun advocates) evenly split. The next appointment will inevitably sway the court for or against upholding the promise of the landmark Heller and McDonald decisions.

Write Your Lawmakers here or call the congressional switchboard at (202) 224-3121 to make your voices heard.

Obama’s strategists are working overtime to secure the crown jewel of his anti-gun legacy: a U.S. Supreme Court that will reverse Heller for all time. Don’t delay. Take action to save your rights now!

Your not a dog Dave ! Sane people do not stick there noses up someones butt when they meet them. But I guess thats how the GOP has trained you.”

Shipmate!

As a private, I took my combat engineer (CE) Advanced Individual Training (AIT) at Ft. Leonard Wood, where the Marine Corps sends their combat engineers to train. Some folks had that “us/them” mentality, but I always got along fine with the leather necks. And of course later in my career, I had a common basis of conversation with Marine Corps officers, in theater.

Seriously?
Is that all you can do?
Puerile adolescent antics? Dude this is not 3rd grade. Most of us are adults here. We gave up childish pursuits decades ago. You sound like a 30 year old pervert still hoping to become a real boy in order to lose his virginity to a real girl.

Gee Bud, Dude really? Is this all you can come up with and then pat yourself on the back with? “Author: gee bud Comment: He He A ten year old big print easy reader written by the tard of wacko Micheal Savage whose real name is Michael Alan Weiner.. It’s not hard to see why you guys eat and swallow the Weiner. HA HA Ha I f’ing crack myself up!” You really seem to be the wiener you joke about. Are we supposed to be impressed with that or the fellow who laughs at his own jokes? Do you realize… Read more »

You’re not part of a circle jerk…….you are the circle jerk(off).

I am coming to believe that gee dunk is one of those paid trolls that the Hillary Cartoon presidential campaign admitted to employing on social media, blogs, etc, and get paid by the response. So by writing the shockingly illogical, insulting, and just plain foolish, gee dunk gets all of us to respond to him, thus padding his pay check. We could refuse to respond to his vitriol altogether or we could respond to other commenters about him. Either way would reduce the number of responces to him and diminish his pay check. Nor is he the only Hilliary paid… Read more »

Gee Bud, Are you paying any attention? Quite a few here have been providing you proof as I have (and gave up) because you are a lost cause. I am guessing you are the kind of person who has to lose everything and have it bite you in the ass before you succumb to the truth. Sad, a mind is a terrible thing to waste. Really sad because people have provided you direct links to sources as well as direct quoted and evidence and yet in your face truth makes no difference to you. Are you one of those persons… Read more »

Hey GeeBud
You are like most liberals and speak before you know what you are talking about. Maybe you should read the book “liberalism is a mental disease” while you are having another glass of kool-aid. Oh yes don’t forget your tinfoil hat.

gee bud

He had that book written 10 years ago by tardwacko Michael Savage wrote “I envisage an Oil for Illegals program.. The president should demand one barrel of oil from Canada for every illegal alien that sneaks into our country.”

No wonder you like the book it was a big print easy reader full of stupid statements like the one quoted above . It was also on the KKK book of the month club I heard.

Kevin

It’s the insane numbnuts like you that want more gun laws…..not the sane and rational thinking people of this country. It’s the morons like you that can’t buy common sense, who are always talking about common sense gun laws (as if you would recognize common sense if it bit you on the butt). I’ll bet you carry a picture of Nancy Pelosi in your wallet…..don’t you gee dumb? LMAO

Kevin Hagus

Wow! gee bud the moron who doesn’t know spit about firearms or the Constitution sure told us! Hahahaha…. Derp.

gee bud

Yeah like wow man? really wow dude you just proved yourself to be as dumb as the other ya’ll qaedas here with that ingenious comment. I bet all you numb nuts will be added to the terror watch list very soon if your not already there.

I’m beginning to see why sane people want stricter gun laws. Again no one actually wants to discuss the chicken little story I see.

Kevin

gee bud is a gee moron! smdh

gee bud

People who spout stupid crap like you guys are the reason all Gun advocates/enthuthiests get a bad rap and the reason a lot of individuals want better gun controls. I can’t believe any corporations choose the propaganda approach over a responsible approach but they do. Greed triumphs and crime pays I guess.

DaveC

Damn! gee bud, you spilled your kool-aid!

TEX

Show me where in the constitution is says we have to have a hearing for a Supreme Court justice nominee ! It doesn’t ! You make sound like Hussein Obanana is a poster boy for upholding the constitution !

gee bud

How about reading the constitution instead of just talking like a dumb ass tex. Start with Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution

Wild Bill

Lets see: Article II, Section 2, (2)… yes, here it is, in pertinent part:”… and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme (sic) Court and all other etc, etc…” Yes, gee bud’ you have proved that the president must have the advice and consent of the Senate to appoint a Supreme Court Judge. You have also proved that the Senate does not have a time limit in which to give its advice and consent And that the Senate may forever withhold… Read more »

Wild Bill…..I doubt gee dud can comprehend what you wrote. It appears that cut-and-dry facts go right over his noggin.

Wild Bill

Kevin, I concur. I tried to work with the lad, read it to him chapter and verse, but he does not seem to be interested in the truth, but rather only the result that he wants. I am beginning to suspect that he is a liberal. Well, I have to be off to church, now.

gee bud

Run a long now bill can’t have the worship of talking snakes and magic apples be forgotten, Oh and by the way don’t forget to leave a pile o’ money for the preacher.
Ya know he needs a new lifted crewcab powerstroke to carry all them bills to his bank account. LOL

Wild Bill…… Beginning to suspect? There is no doubt….gee dud is a Tard of the first order. 😉

SORRY !!! Add an “h” to the link above……

5WarVeteran

Well I agree with the intent but criminals will do what they intend to do regardless of how we vote…

willford

the way other nominees have been stonewalled, It will be good for the turds that did it to get a taste of their own snotty attitudes! DO NOT GIVE IN TO ANYTHING!

Wild Bill

Wilford is right, we must not give in. Merrick Garland would undo what was achieved in DC v. Heller and in McDonald v. Chicago. And this is a fight that we can win easily by not giving him a hearing. Call your Senators and tell them, “Do not give in to anything!” , and we will remember what you do now, during your next election. Be assured I will be calling mine.

gee bud

Again you just regurgitate false NRA propaganda. Nothing at all was achieved as you claim. It was only en banc proposal.

Your not a dog Dave ! Sane people do not stick there noses up someones butt when they meet them. But I guess thats how the GOP has trained you.

Maluka

Years ago the DEMOCRAPS passed a senate rule to prevent any consideration of a SCOTUS nominee during a presidential election year. The purpose was to screw over a GOP nominee back then but now the rule has bit them on their hillary. The rule meant nothing until the DEMOCRAPS wanted to avoid following it. So I say they can kiss my a$$. No consideration.
