Last Chance To OPPOSE Elena Kagan’s Confirmation to U.S. Supreme Court

Friday, July 30, 2010

On Tuesday, July 20, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted 13-6 to send Elena Kagan’s Supreme Court nomination on to the full Senate for a vote.  The full Senate vote on the confirmation will occur the week of August 2nd.  NOW is the time to contact your U.S. Senators and strongly urge them to OPPOSE and filibuster the Kagan nomination!  

As we’ve been reporting in these pages, on July 1, in a letter to the U.S. Senate, NRA announced its strong opposition to her confirmation.  Prior to the Senate Judiciary Committee vote, we ran print ads in Politico, Roll Call, and The Hill newspapers, and ran a nationwide commercial on Fox News and on the Internet opposing Kagan’s confirmation.

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.  

And now, Elena Kagan has 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!

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.
