Urge Your Senators to Support Amy Coney Barrett
President Trump has nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.
From a Second Amendment perspective, Judge Barrett is a strong choice. She has indicated a willingness to examine and apply the Second Amendment as written, by looking at its text and using history as a guide.
While Senate Democrats will follow orders from Kamala Harris to obstruct Judge Barrett, only 51 Republicans have said they’d even be willing to vote on a nominee.
That means we can only afford to lose 1 MORE SENATOR.
We need your urgent help turning up the heat on spineless Senators who will be pressured by the inevitable smear campaign coming against Judge Barrett.
Gun Owners of America had thoroughly examined the judicial records of every single one of President Trump’s potential nominees.
In one opinion she wrote last year, Kanter v. Barr, Judge Barrett took issue with the idea that a U.S. citizen could ever fall into a category of people who are banned for life from exercising a constitutional right.
Judge Barrett has shown that she would reject the two-step balancing test that has run rampant in the lower courts and instead apply the text, history, and tradition test from Heller.
She has also shown concern that the Second Amendment could be treated as “a second-class right.”
For these reasons, we fully expect Judge Barrett’s confirmation to be a nasty fight just like Justice Kavanaugh’s was.
The founder of Moms Demand Action has called Judge Barrett a “Second Amendment extremist” — and Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown has already begun MATCHING donations for their imminent smear campaign against her.
It’s clear that Judge Barrett’s nomination is angering the right people, which is why we need to fight to ensure she makes it to the Supreme Court.
