Obama Picks Anti-gun Judge for the Supreme Court

Unless you’ve taken a very long Memorial Day vacation, you’ve no doubt heard the big news.

President Obama has picked an anti-gun radical to replace Justice David Souter on the Supreme Court.

Obama’s pick is Judge Sonia Sotomayor, who is currently on the U.S.  Court of Appeals for the Second District.  There she has racked up an anti-Second Amendment record and has displayed contempt for the rule of law under the Constitution.

The Heller decision put the Supreme Court in support of the Constitutional protection of the individual right to keep and bear arms. Sotomayor, a politically correct lover of centralized government power (as long as she is part of the power elite), immediately went into counter-attack mode against the Heller decision.

Sotomayor was part of a three-judge panel earlier this year which ruled in Maloney v. Cuomo that the Second Amendment does not apply to the states.  As she and her cohorts claimed, the Supreme Court has not yet incorporated the states under the Second Amendment.  Until then, she believes, the Second only applies to the District of Columbia.

This is pure judicial arrogance—something Sotomayor relishes (as long as she is one of the ruling judges).  In fact, protection of the right to keep and bear arms was a major objective for enactment of the Fourteenth Amendment, as recently freed slaves were being disarmed and terrorized in their neighborhoods.

But Sotomayor disdains this important right of individuals, as indicated by an earlier opinion from 2004.  In United States v. Sanchez-Villar, she stated that “the right to possess a gun is clearly not a fundamental right.”

Sotomayor has held very anti-gun views, even as far back as the 1970s. Fox Cable News reported yesterday that in her senior thesis at Princeton University, she wrote that America has a “deadly obsession” with guns and that the Second Amendment does not guarantee an individual right to firearms ownership.

Sotomayor’s Second Amendment views go hand in hand with her politically correct views on the law and the role of judges.

In a speech given at Duke University in 2005, she made it abundantly clear that judges are involved in making policy.  Realizing that this did not sound very judicial (even though most judges act on this basis), Sotomayor tried to laugh off her brazen admission: “I know this is on tape and I should never say that, [audience laughing], because we don’t make law—I know.  Um, okay. I know, I’m not promoting it, I’m not advocating it.” The audience continued to laugh.  They got the joke.

But Sotomayor’s joke will be on us and our liberties if she gets confirmed to the Supreme Court.  And that is why we need to start contacting our Senators early and often, urging them to vote against
this dangerous nomination.

ACTION:  Please contact your two Senators and urge them to oppose the nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court.  You can go to the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at
http://www.gunowners.org/activism.htm to send your Senators the pre-written e-mail message below.

Dear Senator:

If you cherish the Second Amendment and agree that it protects an individual right to keep and bear arms—as stated by the recent Heller decision—then you must vote against Judge Sonia Sotomayor.

This choice for the Supreme Court is totally unacceptable!  Consider a partial rendering of her anti-gun record:

* Sotomayor ruled in United States v. Sanchez-Villar (2004) that “the right to possess a gun is clearly not a fundamental right.”

* Sotomayor was part of a three-judge panel earlier this year which ruled in Maloney v. Cuomo that the Second Amendment does not apply to the states.  This makes her more liberal than the Ninth Circuit, which stated in April that the Second Amendment does apply to the states.

* Sotomayor has held very anti-gun views, even as far back as the 1970s. Fox Cable News reported on May 28 that in her senior thesis at Princeton University, she wrote that America has a “deadly obsession” with guns and that the Second Amendment does not guarantee an individual right to firearms ownership.

I will consider a vote in favor of Sotomayor as the most anti-gun vote a Senator could cast.  To send an anti-gun liberal judge to the Supreme Court for the rest of her life is to establish “legislation without representation.” After all, she says that the courts are where policy is made, and once she’s there, we’ll never be able to vote her out.

Again, please vote against this dangerous nomination.

Sincerely,

[ PS, she is also an arrogant, out of the closet racist. That remark about Latinas being able to render wiser judgments than white men should disqualify her right there. ]

You realize that a full-on showdown is now coming on 2A, right? It HAS to, because:

The 2nd Circuit ruled that 2A is NOT incorporated

The 9th Circuit ruled that 2A IS incorporated

The Supreme Court CAN NOT allow two different judgments to stand. They MUST address the issue and give ONE opinion.

Since Sotomayor was part of the 2nd Circuit panel that made said ruling, by every honorable judicial concept she HAS to recuse herself if she is part of SCOTUS when the case comes up.

I am more than a bit skittish on this. I know what is RIGHT, and it’s the 9th’s opinion. Yet they’ve been shown to be wrong so many times before.

Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
