Gabby Giffords: Brett Kavanaugh’s Dangerous Views on the Second Amendment
The Truth About Guns ^ | 07/10/18 | Dan Zimmerman

Posted on 07/10/2018 8:25:08 AM PDT by Simon Green

“In nominating Judge Kavanaugh to be the next Supreme Court justice, the Trump Administration is once again showing brazen disregard for the people it claims to protect. Judge Kavanaugh’s dangerous views on the Second Amendment are far outside the mainstream of even conservative thought and stand in direct opposition to the values and priorities of the vast majority of Americans. America needs a Supreme Court justice who respects the Second Amendment but who also realizes reasonable regulations that reduce gun violence do not infringe on anyone’s constitutional rights. But that’s not the kind of justice President Trump nominated today.” – Gabby Giffords’ statement on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court

If they truly did not infringe, then you would not feel the need to call them "reasonable"

Judge Kavanaugh’s dangerous views on the Second Amendment are far outside the mainstream
His view? That it is the law of the land? That as the 2nd Amendment it is at least the second most important amendment? That no law diluting it should ever be passed? How is any of that wrong or out of the main stream?

Speaking of “brazen disregard for the people it claims to protect”, what’s GG’s position of abortion?

>>reasonable regulations that reduce gun violence do not infringe on anyone’s constitutional rights.

The key word is “reasonable”. If you tell me I can’t have a gun tomorrow that I can have today, then your regulation is not reasonable because I did not commit gun violence today. My “gun violence” cannot be reduced since I did not commit any.

Well. If more Gabby Giffords is against him, the more I think he is qualified on the basis of his 2nd Amendment views.

I am completely disgusted and appalled they named a ship after her. Disgusted. I have never been more ashamed of the Navy than that...well, that and the USNS Harvey Milk. I still cant believe that isn’t satire.

When is the media going to rush to report Steve Scalise's view? He was shot too.

Oh yeah, that was by a radical leftists who was hoping to kill republicans so the media has decided it never happened. Never mind.

America needs a Supreme Court justice who respects the Second Amendment but who also realizes reasonable regulations that reduce gun violence do not infringe on anyone’s constitutional rights.
Phony baloney statement!
We already had dozens of Federal and State gun laws. We also have dozens of Federal and State laws against assault and murder. We still have people assaulting and murdering others. Always have and always will So if the numerous laws already on the books have no effect ten additional ones are not going to have an positive effect either.

So what’s the problem, Gabby? He is unqualified because he believes the 2nd Amendment mean what it says?

We need your opinions like a hole in the head.

If it were made an enforced capital offense for African-Americans to purchase, own, possess, sell or transfer a firearm in the US, gun-related and homicide crimes would drop by 90%.

[[”...but who also realizes reasonable regulations that reduce gun violence do not infringe on anyone’s constitutional rights.”]]

Apparently none of the 10’s of 1000’s of gun laws we already have on the books are ‘reasonable’? Perhaps we should undo every last one of them then since they are not reasonable.
