Guns and hunting go together like November and whitetails. They are inseparable. After writing this blog for more than a year I have discovered one thing. Whenever I write a blog about firearm rights it touches a nerve.
You commented on the recent Second Amendment Supreme Court case regarding firearm rights in Chicago. I also suspect you have opinions on the debate of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan. I can't say Kagan is a surprise. I mean really. Would President Obama have selected someone that the NRA supported whole heartedly? Hold on. I'm trying to stop laughing so I can finish.
Speaking of the NRA, if you want to educate yourself on nominee Kagan you should visit their web page (www.nra.org) and read or watch the links on why the NRA opposes her. I doubt if you will be shocked, but you will be more informed. You can then send a message to your senators, especially if they are depending on your vote in a tight race this fall.
If you recall, the Chicago gun ban Supreme Court case barely passed with a 5 to 4 vote. Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayer was one of the votes against our Second Amendment rights and when she was in the hot seat as a nominee she issued a statement almost verbatim to Kagan's regarding your right to bear firearms. They hide behind the statement that it is "settled law." Settled law? I don't think so. It is a right. That's why it is in the BILL OF RIGHTS.
You can read more at the following link (http://www.nraila.org/News/Read/NewsReleases.aspx?ID=13980). As for me, I've read enough. Kagan is no friend of mine or my family.
Honey, put the AR down. The new Supreme Court justices will protect us.
