Take Action Now:  Urge Your U.S. Senators to Confirm Judge Kavanaugh

On Thursday, the nation witnessed what happens when a man of principle, integrity, and dignity clashes with Washington, D.C.’s political hit machine. U.S. Circuit Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh presented a scorching defense of his record and his character after Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee sprung last-minute accusations to try to derail what seemed like Kavanaugh’s likely confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. Now, your U.S. Senators need to hear from YOU to ensure he is seated on the nation’s highest court when it begins its next session in October.

Politely but firmly tell them you stand with Judge Kavanaugh and demand a “yes” vote on his confirmation. You can use the TAKE ACTION feature of our website or call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected with your Senators’ offices.

For gun owners – and indeed anyone who reveres the Constitution and the rule of law – Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination was reason to celebrate. He is a textualist and originalist in the mold of the Supreme Court’s other Second Amendment stalwarts, including the late Justice Antonin Scalia and Justice Clarence Thomas. Judge Kavanaugh provided a staunch defense of the right to keep and bear arms in a case that concerned the constitutionality of the gun control regime D.C. enacted in the wake of the landmark District of Columbia v. Heller decision. 

Dissenting from an opinion that upheld most aspects of the District’s intentionally oppressive regulations, Kavanaugh wrote: “As a lower court … it is not our role to re-litigate Heller or to bend it in any particular direction. Our sole job is to faithfully apply Heller and the approach it set forth for analyzing gun bans and regulations.” Applying the methodology set forth in Justice Scalia’s carefully-written but often-ignored opinion, Kavanaugh concluded, “In my judgment, both D.C.'s ban on semi-automatic rifles and its gun registration requirement are unconstitutional under Heller.”  

Needless to say, this – plus his refusal to “bend” precedent to suit the personal politics of progressive “reformers” – have made Judge Kavanaugh a target of anti-gun members of the Senate. Chief among them is the Judiciary’s Committee’s ranking member, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA). 

Feinstein humiliated herself at Judge Kavanaugh’s earlier confirmation hearings by misrepresenting the federal “assault weapons” ban of which she claimed authorship. She also ludicrously suggested that the same types of firearms owned by millions upon millions of law-abiding Americans are not “in common use” for purposes of analyzing whether they are among the “arms” protected by the Second Amendment.

The Judiciary Committee has now voted to advance Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination. But the same anti-gun Democrats who tried to derail Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination with last minute allegations are now demanding that the final confirmation vote should be delayed further. How such an investigation would proceed is unclear.   

What is clear is that anti-gun Democrats are desperate to delay Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation until after the election, with the hope they may recapture the Senate and prevent any Trump nominee from reaching the Supreme Court at all. They have shown themselves willing to stoop to any tactic in this effort. Indeed, before the confirmation process even began , Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) openly pledged to “oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination with everything I have … .”

That’s why your U.S. Senators must hear from you TODAY!   

If Schumer and his anti-gun colleagues succeed in retaking control of the House and Senate in the upcoming elections, the Supreme Court will be an even more critical backstop for our fundamental liberties. 

This is an historic turning point no gun owner can ignore. Please ask your U.S. Senators to confirm Judge Kavanaugh and preserve your Second Amendment rights for decades to come!  You can contact your U.S. Senators at 202-224-3121 or click here to take action
