Gun Shy

Oh no! The NRA has come out against Sotomayor's potential / probable confirmation to the Supreme Court. SHOCKING!

I never saw that one coming!

"We believe any individual who does not agree that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right and who does not respect our God-given right of self-defense should not serve on any court, much less the highest court in the land."

A g-d given right?

Are you fucking kidding me? Please someone point this one out to me. Scripture? Phone Call? Tweet from g-d? Did I miss his press release?

The second amendment is all of 27 words long. Only about 100 millions times over have other words been written trying to dissect a quote shorter than the oath of the president of the United States.

Wayne LaPierre and Chris Cox of the National Rifle Association said Sotomayor has a "hostile view of the Second Amendment and the fundamental right of self-defense."

Yes, 'hostile'. Coming from men who advocate carrying concealed weapons and ordinary citizens needing AK-47s. To be fair, if anyone knows from 'hostile', it should be them. But they were the ones who defended the right of the student from Virgina Tech to purchase firearms and enough ammo to take out a lot more people than he actually did.

And not to stereotype too too much (ok....maybe a little), doesn't the GOP just reek of the NRA (and vice versa)? So, LaPierre. Don't the republicunts still hate the French or anything that sounds Frenchy?

I don't know from any of her rulings, but at least from her testimony, there was nothing I heard where she'd endanger the rights of the NRA . But they do love their preemptive strikes, don't they?

I really don't get the nutters that think the 2nd amendment will be completely recinded by the current government. My god people!

We need another Waco to thin out their ranks a little.
