"ALITO ENDS UP WITH MORE 'NO' VOTES THAN ALL BUT ONE CONFIRMED SUPREME COURT JUSTICE

Although some Senators tried to stop the nomination of Judge Alito with a filibuster, that effort failed when the Senate voted to shut off debate by a vote of 72-25. The Senate then voted to confirm Judge Alito by a vote of 58-42. We must continue to watch the Supreme Court and future nominations very closely, since there are now several Justices who seem to support an activist approach to the 2nd Amendment and who question the power of Congress to enact strong gun laws. With the confirmation of Judge Alito, there is an increasing danger that the Court will reject longstanding precedent, strike down federal gun laws, and jeopardize public safety.

The Brady Campaign blows everything else out of proportion to inflame it's members. I see no reason to believe they hit the mark on this one. The court will protect the status quo. Not that it wouldn't be nice if this was the one thing they are right about.

I want to be the first guy to walk into a podunk gunshop and buy a BAR. I want to be the first guy in my village with a store bought M2 and a wheel barrow full of suppresors for all of my guns. I want to be asked by the county to please remove the brass from my property because it is blocking the view.

Absolutely true! Also true is that he is now a SCOTUS justice and Sarah and company can kiss my shiny white ass.
