APPEARS IN Second Amendment

Contact Your Senators And Urge Them To OPPOSE Elena Kagan's Confirmation to U.S. Supreme Court

Friday, July 16, 2010

As we reported in last week's Grassroots Alert, 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 is 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 ruling 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!
 
The
Senate Judiciary Committee will vote on Kagan's nomination to the Supreme Court on Tuesday, July 20th.   NOW is the time to contact Committee members and your U.S. Senators and strongly urge them to OPPOSE and filibuster the Kagan nomination!  

To view the complete list of Senate Judiciary Committee members and obtain their contact information, please click here (http://judiciary.senate.gov/about/members.cfm). 

You can find contact information for your U.S. Senators by using the "Write Your Representatives" tool at www.NRAILA.org.  You may also contact your Senators by e-mail at http://www.capwiz.com/nra/dbq/officials/, or by phone at (202) 224-3121. 

Please contact your Senators TODAY and ask them to OPPOSE and filibuster the Kagan nomination -- the future of our Second Amendment rights depends on it!
