At the time of this writing, the confirmation process for Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court is still going hot and heavy with Republicans raving for him and Democrats raving against him.
For some people, just knowing who loves him and who hates him would be enough to know how they feel about a candidate for the courts. There is a logic to this. After all, if Nancy Pelosi hates a candidate, there is a good chance that the candidate’s stance on the Second Amendment is going to be something that you support. After all, Pelosi never saw a rational stance on guns that she supported.
But, if you’re like many people, you want more information to know if Kavanaugh is who you want on the court. Fortunately, in light of the Second Amendment, Harold Hutchison gives us some details about Kavanaugh’s positions that might interest you. It seems likely that Kavanaugh will have a rational position on guns. For example, Hutchison writes,
Kavanaugh is best noted for his dissent in the October 2011 ruling in Heller v. District of Columbia. In his dissent from that ruling, Kavanaugh stated that he would have struck down DC’s ban on certain semi-automatic rifles.
“Semi-automatic rifles, like semi-automatic handguns, have not traditionally been banned and are in common use by law-abiding citizens for self-defense in the home, hunting, and other lawful uses. Moreover, semi-automatic handguns are used in connection with violent crimes far more than semi-automatic rifles are. It follows from Heller’s protection of semi-automatic handguns that semi-automatic rifles are also constitutionally protected and that D.C.’s ban on them is unconstitutional,” he [kavanaugh] wrote.
At the time of the this writing, it’s still not settled if Kavanaugh will be confirmed as a U.S. Supreme Court justice, but, from what we know about his position on gun rights, it appears that he could be exactly the kind of person that we want on that court.
What we really need to ban is the wheenie whinney liberal democrats and some republicans that constantly have their heads up their assess and kissing that queer illegal muslim obama balls. He is not a president before or after, illegal muslim!!! It should be a felony and treated as traitors to this country which means shot or hung until dead. Military court!!!
I think Kavanaugh is exactly who we need on the Supreme Court. Our rights according to the Constitution must be protected.
Yes he is the right man!!
Yes I agree Judge Kavanaugh is a great choice for SCJ. In the eyes the Democratic party Judge Kavanaughs strong beliefs make him a strong adversary to the Democratic partys agenda against our second amendment.
It dies so appear.
OOPS! a large typo. Should read It does so appear.

A DAMN SHAME THAT THOSE WHO WERE ONCE “FOR THE WORKING MAN” , ARE NOW ARE NOW FOR THE C.P.- U.S.A. ………. AIN’T THAT RIGHT … CHUCK U SCHUMER ???
Any gun owner that votes for Democrats is a traitor!!
According to Miller v. US (US Supreme Court, 1937) the “arms” which possession and “bearing” (carrying for the purpose of going armed) is protected by the 2d Amendment are those commonly issued to infantrymen, foot soldiers.
Today those would be such as:
· M-16/M-4 selective fire carbine
· 40 mm grenade launcher
· SAW (Squad Automatic Rifle)
· LAW (Light Antitank Weapon)
· Battle pistol
· Hand grenades
· Combat knife
· Other weapons currently or formerly issued to foot soldiers.
Most any weapon that does not require two or more persons to operate (crew-served).
The purpose of the Amendment is to maintain a ready reserve of armed persons available to be called into federal service.
Hopefully the Nov. elections will go Red and Trump can do some more good without too much democrap interference .
Regardless of Kavanaugh’s stance on guns, certainly semi-automatic guns are also hunting rifles used by lots of hunters in the inter mountain areas. I do agree that they make little sense in DC and Florida or in large cities but still, hunters do live in big cities. But any rifle is not useful as a concealed weapon. Semi-automatic pistols are the choice for concealed weapons, obviously, and are therefore legal. But there are lots of illegal handguns in large cities as in Chicago and Baltimore, which can never be confiscated as they have been in the hands of criminals for a lot of years.
