Watch NRA's New Ad Opposing <br>Elena Kagan's Confirmation to U.S. Supreme Court

Friday, July 9, 2010

On July 1, NRA announced its strong opposition to the confirmation of Elena Kagan for the U.S. Supreme Court in a letter to the U.S. Senate.  

Both her political career in the Clinton Administration and her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee make it clear that Kagan would be a serious opponent of our Second Amendment Rights.
Last year, Sonia Sotomayor deliberately misled the American people by claiming she believed it was "settled law" that the Second Amendment protected an individual right to keep and bear arms.  This year, she proved she never really believed that by voting against the Second Amendment in McDonald v. City of Chicago.

Elena Kagan used the same phrases—"settled law" and "precedent" —to describe her view of the Second Amendment in the hearings.  It is critical that the members of the U.S. Senate not fall for the same trick twice.
And it is not too late!  First, please watch the attached web ad that the NRA will be airing across the country.  Then, please contact your Senators at 202-224-3121 and by email at http://www.capwiz.com/nra/dbq/officials/ and urge them to oppose and filibuster Kagan's confirmation.  The future of our Second Amendment rights depends on it!
