Skip to comments.A SHINING EXAMPLE(Scalia takes Kagan Shooting)
Posted on 10/26/2011 6:47:59 AM PDT by marktwain
All of us shooters give lip service to proselytizing: Take a new shooter to the range! Take someone hunting for the first time! Few actually DO it, however, at least very often. Once again, US Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia inspires us. Just caught this from Eugene Volokh: http://volokh.com/2011/10/23/another-hunter-on-the-high-court/ Kudos to Justice Scalia for taking the time to do this. And kudos to Justice Kagan for being open-minded. Scalia has obviously been a voice of reason for our side. Kagan has not. Will her new perspective be reflected in her next analysis of these issues on the highest Bench in the land? We wont know until then. Scalia has still set an example all of us would do well to follow.

I know many anti-gun people who changed their mind after learning to shoot.
Scalia: “So, what did you think?”
Kagan: “It was a blast! Now, I’d like to operate a drone console and really do some damage.”
Should have invited Dick Cheney, too............
Yup, I think she's got it.
Nice of Tony but he really doesn’t get it. I’m surprised. Liberals have never had a problem w/ guns. Their problem is w/ you having them. Its about moral superiority not h/w.

Take a kid to a gun show.
I had the privilege of hearing Justic Scalia address a small group several years ago. A warm, brilliant, avuncular man with a sense of humor and wit that just doesn’t stop. I have never met a more engaging personality.
I really enjoy introducing shooting to beginners.
A few months ago a friend from NY, a female attorney, who had never shot any firearm, ever, was in town. I gave her basic instructions, and took her to a local range that I knew to be very professional and clean in appearance. She had a great time. That's another seed planted, one person at a time.
Not so fast.
Kagan is a very far left liberal.
Her comments were directed at self. Remember she may want a gun, but you cannot have one.
