Fairfax, Va. -The National Rifle Association (NRA) applauds the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill Justice Anthony Kennedys seat on the United States Supreme Court.
President Trump has made another outstanding choice in nominating Brett Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court. He has an impressive record that demonstrates his strong support for the Second Amendment, said Chris W. Cox, Executive Director, NRA-ILA. We urge the Senate to swiftly confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, just as it confirmed him to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
During his tenure on the U.S. Court of Appeals, Kavanaugh wrote a strong dissenting opinion in opposition to Washington, D.C.s ban on commonly owned semi-automatic firearms and registration requirement by applying an historical test consistent with Justice Scalias opinion in Heller.
Judge Kavanaugh has demonstrated his clear belief that the Constitution should be applied as the Framers intended. To that end, he has supported the fundamental, individual right to self-defense embraced by Justice Scalia in the historic Heller decision.
On behalf of our six million members, the NRA strongly supports Judge Brett Kavanaughs confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. We will be activating our members and tens of millions of supporters throughout the country in support of Judge Kavanaugh. He will protect our right to keep and bear arms and is an outstanding choice to fill Justice Kennedys seat, concluded Cox.
Liberal heads are now exploding.
Aw noes, the evil NRA now endorses the evil Kavanaugh. Stop him!!!
This will show up on Yahoo I’m willing to wager.
The liberals there will all be in total meltdown.
The Supreme Court has recognized an individual RKBA under the Second Amendment, but only a very limited one (self-defense in the home). Once Justice Kavanaugh is on the Court, that will change.
Love to see that. :^)
Oh, of course, lol.
Actually it’s pretty ugly. Group-think, total belief in the liberal MSM, total devotion to Obama, Hillary not so much (I give them partial credit for that one).
Surprisingly, support for a peace deal with NK and little tolerance for street thug crime.
Still a significant portion clueless about anything good and decent in America.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
Have not heard from Boss Hogg in a while.
Just a reminder, if ya haven't read District of Columbia v. Heller[pdf], I would suggest ya do. It reaffirms alot of bad stuff.
Reciprocal CC is on the horizon ...
I think it is just beyond the horizon.
Laws against conceald carry are perhaps of long-standing in some jurisdictions to prevent recognizing it as part of the right.
What I expect to have happen is that the Supreme Court will uphold a right to carry openly. That will be followed by demonstrations by people such as myself who will carry openly everywhere we can until such time as the various legislatures BEG us to carry concealed instead.
It will be a great boost to me to believe that we have a Supreme Court that might be unwilling to let me rot in jail for disobeying an un-Constitutional infringement of my right to keep and bear arms.
I believe its a $2,500 fine to illegally carry in MD. Might be worth the risk at some point. Ill just say Im an undocumented conceal carry enthusiast ;)
