NRA/ILA comes out against Kagan.
I’d like you all to see a quote from a push email by NRA members. I happen to strongly support the recent ruling, but can only speculate what decision Kagan may have made.
Does anyone reading have any solid facts to add from her record? Please feel free to add them to this page by way of commentary. I would find it helpful for this small page to be a source of solid information about the nominee on this issue.
“Among the most important votes a United States Senator can cast is that for or against a nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.
As an NRA Member and staunch supporter of the Second Amendment, I urge you to oppose Elena Kagan’s confirmation to the Supreme Court. I would further encourage you to lead or support a filibuster against her nomination.
Throughout her political career, Ms. Kagan has clearly demonstrated her hostility toward the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans. The critical Heller and McDonald decisions — which affirmed that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms for all Americans — each prevailed by a narrow 5-4 majority. We cannot afford to give another opponent of the Second Amendment a lifetime appointment to our nation’s highest court.
I would greatly appreciate it if you would inform me of how you plan to vote on this critical nomination.”
