Posted on 04/26/2012 1:43:37 PM PDT by marktwain
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has found himself a new enthusiastic hunting partner in fellow Justice Elena Kagan. We know what you're thinking: "Wait a second, isn't Kagan that new judge Obama appointed?" Yep, that's the one. We're just as surprised (and delighted) as you are.
We have to give some kudos to Scalia, but it looks as though we have Sen. James Risch of Idaho to ultimately thank for this fortunate turn of events. Back in 2010 when Obama nominated Kagan for the Supreme Court position, Risch asked Kagan about her views on gun rights. She admitted that she'd never fired a gun before, but made a promise to go hunting with Scalia if she were confirmed.
Kagan kept her promise and went on a hunting trip with her philosophical opposite. The pair took a quick trip to a Virginia shooting range, followed by a hunting trip in the Washington area. When asked about the experience, Kagan replied, "It turns out, it's really good fun." The pair are planning on hunting again in Montana this October.
We can't be certain if Justice Scalia was motivated by political reasons or simply by a desire to find a new hunting pal, but we're not complaining. Another Supreme Court justice discovering her newfound love of guns is music to our ears. It's all a bit ironic considering that Kagan came off as a unsympathetic to gun rights a few years ago. As it turns out, all it took to get her to change her mind about guns was to actually pick one up.
It is a question of who is in charge, after all.
Thank God for small favors.
When I suspected she might be “one of the guys” that isn’t what I had in mind.
I hope she isn’t out there influencing Scalia. Lol
“Tony, Look. Do we really need these guns? I have captured this Quail with my bare hands and will now take a bite out of it right here. Real men hunt with their hands and teeth. We should ban guns....”
“It is a question of who is in charge, after all.”
Exactly. Leftists want you to completely depend on the government to protect your life at all times...
I don’t like anyone going out and killing animals for sport.
My opinion. Jennikins.
Now let her get all her medical needs addressed in Cuba so the dolt can see the reality of what obamacare will truly be.
This is your brain, this is your brain infected with liberalism.
The 2nd Amendment has nothing to do with whether one has personally fired a gun. Likewise, the 1st Amendment has nothing to do with owning a printing press.
a big favor would be hunting with Cheney.
Manly Women (lesbians) who are taught to hate things (without actually dealing with them) that are manly will actually change their minds about them if they are exposed to them in a positive manner.
I have seen this happen personally to other people several times.
One was a sickly creature who was convinced to be a Vegan and learned to appreciate grilling and now thinks that even ovo lacto vegitarians are crazy.
Sometimes putting a manly women instead of a weak-spined girly man into an position can backfire on the libs in that it is easier for a manly women to embrace conservatism than it is for a effete man to do so.
Do they actualy hunt or are they going to a game farm where the fields are stocked about a 1/2 hr earlier with birds and dogs flush them about 20 25 yards out?
That’s about as silly as me declaring... I don’t like anyone going out and picking plants for sport!
If I want to kill an animal or plant.. that’s what they are freaking there for!
Even if I just leave it on the ground, i’ve just made an easy meal for another animal.
I don’t believe in hunting where the carcass would go to waste either, or where it’s likely an animal will only be maimed but not killed, but I do not believe this is the case for almost all hunting.
a dyke is just a tomboy out of place?
I don’t like this at all. Cheney plugged his attorney and last week we had some guy shoot his fiance in FL while hunting. Antonin Scalia is way too valuble to be exposed to an opponent with a gun. Keep Scalia safe. Let Kagen go hunting with Ginsburg.
And I don't like you.
Stuff your 'opinion', and keep it in California where it belongs.
But that doesn't take away from the enjoyment of coydog hunting when they become a problem.

Maybe he’s using the old Dick Cheney hunting trick...
But by having a person actually use either of those devices, they are more likely to support it's use.
“Do they actualy hunt or are they going to a game farm where the fields are stocked about a 1/2 hr earlier with birds and dogs flush them about 20 25 yards out?”
I could care less either way.
What else would they do with the animal after they killed it?
I don’t know anyone who kills for food nowadays.
Live and let live is my motto.
perhaps she is a little less likely to believe nonsense about it, if she does. she will discover that the gun doesn’t whisper sinister things to her at all, nor does it jump up and chase quarry down.
A nice bear rug and some bear steaks.
[ a dyke is just a tomboy out of place? ]
Or a tomboy who was “liberally indoctrinated.”
I am sure she will work hard to protect “her” gun rights.
I don’t like people who don’t like killing animals for sport and meat to offer an unsolicted personal opinion.
We are not asking you to hunt and kill (for sport or meat). Just to leave us alone. Okay?
“I dont know anyone who kills for food nowadays.”
I don’t know anybody who doesn’t, you do realize that all 50 states have laws in place that make it a crime to waste or leave in the field any game animal taken.
Or a church, or a Hall.
My exact thoughts.
And she will be exposed to gun owners, and hopefully ones like I know that respect guns, animals, humans, the law, etc.; and therefore less likely to believe the nonsense about gun owners as well.
Animals are not there just for you to kill them.
They are there to live, just like you are.
A plant is entirely different. They are not breathing and living creatures like an animal.
Yes, I know they breathe too, but not like a flesh and blood animal. BTW, I do not eat meat, ever.
Yup. And not just gun hunting — I know a guy who goes hunting with bow and arrow. Got a freezer full of deerburger.
Move out to Missouri and you will find people with freezers full of venison, who eat quail and pheasant seasonally, whose Thanksgiving dinner is centered around a Tom that they got with a bow, and who enjoy a nice squirrel stew on a cold winter day.
Just because you don't know anyone who does it, doesn't mean that there aren't millions who do it.
Unless you are a vegan, someone else is doing the killing for you.
That's not "hunting".
It's "pest control".
And much more entertaining than setting a mousetrap.
If I were Scalia, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near Kagan when she’s carrying a gun. If she shot him, she’d claim it was an accident (like Cheney’s) and there is no way Obama would prosecute. Oops. Oh well, Obama, better appoint someone new.
Not entirely true. Down here in Texas killing hogs and letting them lay is allowed.
Manly Women (lesbians) who are taught to hate things (without actually dealing with them) that are manly will actually change their minds about them if they are exposed to them in a positive manner.”
Good thing they didn’t bring Anthony Weiner...
Killing wild hogs down here in Texas is, well, more of sport than for food, and is sanctioned by the state.
I should not give my opinion, but we should all have yours.
Ma’am, far be it from us to tell you to scat... we believe there’s a place for all God’s creatures, right next to the potatoes on the dinner plate. We love them, they’re finger licking good.... I know you mean well, but what are you going to do about the cats and the dogs? They both need meat too and they aren’t nearly as scrupulous as humans are about getting it humanely in the wild. I think if you could ask an animal if it would rather be slaughtered by a human or torn to death by another wild beast, there would be no doubt.
Obama having a heart attack
In PA you’re supposed to leave ferral hogs and coyotes where they fall but you are supposed to call the Game Commission and tell them where you shot it.
Ginsburg? LOL The recoil of a BB gun would probably knock her on her butt.
Apparently, so do the coydogs.
And yes, it's legal to leave them, which I would do with anything over 150lbs. Destructive little buggers.
You don't get out much, do you?
Either that, or you live in some large city near the coasts.
Hunting is a human right. I kill for food, and then thank God for the animal's life sustaining mine, as I cut its heart out.
