    2nd Ammendment Gone!

    Senate Democrats Move to Reverse Supreme Court’s Heller decisionReid-Leahy move would gut the Second Amendment in the eyes of the courtsHaving failed to get gun control passed in the Senate, Democrats are now making a last ditch effort to reshape the Supreme Court.Well, we hate to say it, but we predicted this would happen.You remember when Harry Reid was threatening to destroy the Senate filibuster in January -- and later in July -- in order to approve Leftist Obama-supported nominees?You remember, at the time, we said that, if Reid “pulled the trigger” on this so-called nuclear option to destroy the filibuster in some cases -- thus eliminating the need for Reid to garner 60 votes some of the time -- there would be no impediment to Reid doing anything he wanted with 50 votes (plus Biden) in other cases?And you remember we said that it wouldn’t take long before Reid tried to limit the filibuster and use a mere 50 Democratic votes to approve other things as well -- like an anti-gun Supreme Court justice to replace Supreme Court “swing vote” Anthony Kennedy? The immediate ramification of such an appointment would be to overturn the Heller case (which held that the Second Amendment is an “individual right,” not just the right of a state to raise a militia).Finally, you remember that Harry Reid said, at the time, that his shady precedent would just apply to Executive Branch nominees, not judges?Well, it hasn’t taken long for his lie to be exposed.The anti-gun Democratic Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Patrick Leahy (D-VT), has just called for blowing up the Senate rules to approve judges with 50 votes. See Roll Call, “Leahy Eyes ‘Nuclear Option’Threat to Confirm Judges,” (August 2, 2013).Although Leahy doesn’t explicitly say so, this would eventually include Obama’s prospective anti-gun replacement to the 80-year-old Kennedy -- and would mean that the Second Amendment, in the eyes of the courts, would no longer exist.Again, Justice Kennedy cast the deciding vote on the 5-4 Heller decision. So, if he is replaced by an anti-gun Obama nominee, Heller is gone.ACTION: Click here to urge your Senators to oppose the anti-gun “nuclear option” to blow up the Senate rules. Tell them that any vote in favor of weakening the filibuster rules for judicial confirmations will ultimately result in a reversal of the Heller case --and a body-blow to the Second Amendment.

    I'm with Wooly, maybe it's past my bedtime but there's way to many questions in that to understand where the second amendment is going.

    Hopefully the Dems realize that payback is a bitch, and if they pass the 50 vote minimum, then the Republicans can do the same to them when they retake Congress.

    This is a stretch. Seems like someone is drinking the partisan cool aid.

    The fortunate reality is that when it comes to the 2nd Amendment, we have lots of Democratic Senators on our side and not just Republicans.

    I agree with Wooly also. Please summarize so that the average "Joe" can easily comprehend it.

    Voter turnout was one of the lowest in State history yesterday. Republican turnout was the lowest ever for a Senate primary according to the Star Ledger. Booker trounced his Dem. challengers, grabbing 59% of the vote, yet still beat Lonegan by more than 100,000 votes! Booker has star-power, with Oprah and Eva by his side. (Registered Democrat's outnumber Republican's by more than 700,000 in New Jersey.) Lonegan is already demonized by the labels; "Tea Party, anti-Obama, pro-life, pro-gun."
