The hearings on Elena Kagan — President Obama's radical pick to join the U.S. Supreme Court — began yesterday.
This is a VERY IMPORTANT battle that gun owners must fight, as evidenced by the slim victory in the McDonald v. Chicago case that was handed down by the high Court yesterday.
Kagan doesn't have a record of judicial opinions, but her views on the Second Amendment are no mystery:
* Kagan drafted a directive in favor of a semi-automatic import ban while serving in the Clinton administration;
* As a law clerk, she advised against allowing the Supreme Court to hear arguments in Sandidge v. United States that the D.C. gun ban was unconstitutional;
* Kagan was also part of the Clinton team that pushed the firearms industry to include gun locks with all gun purchases and was in the Clinton administration when the president pushed legislation that would close down gun shows; and
* Just today, Kagan gave a hint to her true colors. When asked a simple question by Senator Grassley of Iowa — does the Second Amendment codify a pre-existing right from God or is it a right created by the Constitution? — Kagan looked like a deer caught in the headlights. After an awkward pause, she said: "I've never considered that question."
