Judge Kavanaugh To U.S. Supreme Court

#1
In my opinion, the most important task of the SCOTUS is deciding whether a statute, existing or proposed, is within the parameters set forth in the U.S. Constitution. Although Judge Kavanaugh is too liberal for me, I believe that he will uphold the U.S.C. as written and not "interpret" it to enhance his own agenda. In my opinion, this is particularly true in future challenges to the Second Amendment. The leftists such as Schumer and Feinstein would like nothing better than to outlaw private possession of ALL firearms. There will be a future movement to eliminate the Second Amendment from the U.S.C. to allow this to occur and Judge Kavanaugh will be among the Justices that will oppose such a movement

Just turn out and vote this November. Liberals have energized their base, and we'll lose if we don't show.
Conservatives, Republicans & Libertarians I would think are mightily energized. Be it the shameful BS dumocrats pushed regarding Kavanaugh confirmation or the sterling successes delivered by President Trump, winning can continue. More Republicans and Libertarians needed.

President Trump promised conservative Supreme Court nominees. He has delivered two. More in the wings. Maybe RBG will check out. Also worth noting President Trump has been stacking the Federal Courts at all levels with conservatives quite aggressively. As I understand it, more appointments confirmed than any one else with nearly two years in. The Courts are a huge priority for President Trump.


This winning is hugely fun and I enjoy the hell out it..

Saturday 22 October early voting opens in Nevada. Details at link below.

Agreed. Hopefully the *independent voters* are sufficiently outraged by the dem shenanigans and show up at the polls. The snowflakes on social media are calling for "vengeance" at the polls, but it could be a case of careful what you wish for. Especially if the indies go Red. LOL

As for gun owners, they'd better wake up FAST and learn that today's democrats are now the party of gun control.

2 young conservative Supreme Court Justices that will serve for decades was well worth the crap we've all had to listen to and put up with for the past 2 years. Everything else accomplished by the Trump Administration was all a big bonus. November will be critical as to whether or not anything else will be accomplished in the next few years. Get out and vote no matter what else you do. In fact get out as soon as early voting starts so nothing else can get in the way of your vote,

I'm encouraged by Kavanaugh's views on Assault Weapons Bans, but not enthused by his blanket acceptance of the NFA, or his views on protection of the 4th Amendment.

Yes, in context, much better than whatever Clinton might have nominated, and a short-term a win for the direction of the 2A, but not what I'd prefer in terms of a Justice who actually cares about protection of individual liberty.

In a rare lucid moment, nitwit nancy explains how easy it is to validate smears (lies) with complicit media playing a supporting role. It nearly worked against Kavanaugh through so many transparant lies over the past two or three weeks. There we have it.

Kavanaugh ruling AGAINST banning ARs quite emphatic!!!

IMHO, Kavanaugh confirmation a long term win for 2A Rights. He will in all likelihood serve on the Supreme Court for decades.

With more Rs in the Senate (including Heller, NOT Rosen), we'll see more conservative Judges and hopefully one or two more Justices. RBG has been fading for years. Probably next SC seat opening. A great time to have President Trump and Rs running the Senate.

Please VOTE.

...and the logic he uses to bolster being against "assault weapons" being banned is being *for* keeping NFA items regulated. Read his entire statement in that ruling that is cited.

And then there is this:

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) grilled the nominee about his view that assault weapons couldn’t be regulated, asking what evidence he used to justify his position that assault weapons were “in common use” and thus their ownership was protected by the Second Amendment.

Kavanaugh dodged the question, saying, “Machine guns can be prohibited.”

So, no, I don't find this to be a "long term win for 2A Rights."

His vote will protect one portion of 2A rights, but at the expense of another.

Again, better than what Clinton would have nominated, but not my "fantasy football" SCOTUS pick by a longshot.

Fundamentally, part of the deal is getting the nominee confirmed. Gotta have 50 of more yea... Pence can be 51. To say we have wimpy Rs in the Senate that'll easily capitualte to the dumocrat socialist side is an understatement. The nominee has to be sellable and still meet the criteria we need.


Got it. Look for anything that is less than iron clad what one wants to hear and latch onto that supposed negative. Which it is not. Had he said anything positive about machine guns he'd have never been confirmed. "Can" is not "should". It is a hypothetical at this point.


We need to work with the hand we have today.

Then work to make it better tomorrow.

Bad mouthing a win helps nothing.

SMH over whining about winning.

Oh, no sir, it is not hypothetical in any way.

This is an actual opinion Kavanaugh wrote in an actual case, Heller II, and actual judicial reasoning applied to the opinion.

https://www.cadc.uscourts.gov/inter...C748525791F004D84F9/$file/10-7036-1333156.pdf

"By contrast, fully automatic weapons, also known as machine guns, have traditionally been banned and may continue to be banned after Heller."

and

"It bears emphasis that Heller, while enormously significant jurisprudentially, was not revolutionary in terms of its immediate real-world effects on
American gun regulation. Indeed, Heller largely preserved the status quo of gun regulation in the United States. Heller established that
traditional and common gun laws in the United States remain constitutionally permissible."

This is the judicial equivalent of "I believe in the 2nd Amendment, but...."

To be enthusiastic over Kavanaugh being against an AWB, but fully flying the flag in support of the NFA, is ridiculous. As you say, he is LIFETIME appointment...so we are supposed to be happy about not pushing back against the NFA for the next 50 years? Make it better tomorrow...if you believe "tomorrow" to be in our grandchildrens' lifetime.

This is being happy over taking down a pawn in a chess game without consideration of the other strategy in the game needed to actually win.

And none of this is even considering his views on the 4th Amendment.

I'm perfectly comfortable being critical of this SCOTUS justice. Is he better than whatever Clinton would have nominated? Yep. You may consider this a momentous victory, but I don't.

Appreciate the link and suggestion to read her statement. Listening was good, but reading today even better. Absolutely worth reading. Rather thorough and methodical. Wish all Senators followed a logical process. Very much appreciated her statements regarding confirming recent Justices nominated by various Presidents and addressing "advise and consent". Should be no politics in the latter. Or so I figure. Seems as though the dumorats are strictly ideologues when "advise and consent" is in play. IMHO.

Senator Lindsey Graham stated clearly during the confirmation hearings, "God help us if the democrats get real power". The soon to arrive, mid-term elections, will show the direction, or rather, the fate of our country. Please vote, please get as many like-minded voters to the polls as possible. Concerning Senator Collins speech on the senate floor before the confirmation vote, this may likely go down as one of the most historic speeches in senate history.
