    Hon. Judge Kavanaugh was confirmed today, 50-48.

    The entire spectacle should give us pause. There are many angles one can view this from. A couple friends of mine who vote left were absolutely disgusted with the tactics used by their team.

    I offer the following link. Disclaimer: it's PJMedia. All the popups and weirdness are worth wading/suffering through IMO to read the content.

    Long live our guns, imagine what would happen if Ginsberg (not wishing any ill will on her) dropped dead and Trump had a 3rd pick in his first term. It'd be holy hell for everyone.

    George H.W. Bush appointed David Souter. RINO.
    From LeftiPedia:
    Appointed by President George H. W. Bush to fill the seat vacated by William J. Brennan, Jr., Souter sat on both the Rehnquist and Roberts courts and came to vote reliably with the court's liberal members during his tenure

    Kavanaugh wrote the sole dissenting opinion of the original hearing of Heller v. DC when it was argued in the DC circuit, in which the majority upheld the DC handgun ban. The position he laid out in that dissent was ultimately adopted by Justice Scalia and the SCOTUS when they decided the case, reversing his colleagues majority opinion on the DC circuit.

    On top of it, at his confirmation hearings he openly argued with Feinstein on what constitutes "common use" in application of Heller on state/federal level gun bans. Feinstein (idiot) took the position that mere possession does not equal use, thus the common use doctrine laid out in Heller doesn't apply to assault weapons bans and they free to do whatever they want. Kavanaugh argued (correctly) that no where else in federal statue or Constitutional interpretation does possession not equate to use and legislative power on the 2nd amendment is not unlimited. From a 2nd Amendment standpoint, I think he'll be just fine. I'm honestly surprised he even indulged her stupidity in answering the question, as it's likely that very subject will come before the court.

    Correct. Although he's no Scalia (who is?), he's no Souter either. He is a constitutionlist.

    :o.o::confused:
    I’m guessing that I know how you vote. Do you still believe in the 2A? Or should we all just have muskets?

    Legislative power IS limited, thats the entire point of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, to limit the power of Govt over the people. Who do you think "Shall not be Infringed" applies to?

    Uh, that’s exactly what Kavanaugh argued at his conformation. Reread what I wrote.

    Kavanaugh is a great pic and I wish him well. Will be a lot of entertainment watching the libtards run around with their hair on fire. Again.

    Scalia's and the other so-called "conservatives" on the court had NO PROBLEM allowing all kinds of gun control statues to be enacted post-Heller and McDonald. They REFUSED the appeals of gun control statues in NY, CA, MD, Mass and Hawaii.

    Those of us who foolishly once believed in the hope of judicial remedy from Scalia and Co., sadly learned how wrong we were when the time came for him to enforce Heller. The myth does not match his actual record, so forgive me for the reality check, it's a bitter pill for those us living in occupied territory.
