President Trump has kept his promise to appoint a judge to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court that occurred due to the sudden death of Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016. He chose Judge Neil Gorsuch, who current sits on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals and according to Independence Institute Research Director Dave Kopel, he has a good record on Second Amendment related cases. From NRA America’s First Freedom:
“The Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to own firearms and may not be infringed lightly.” So wrote U.S. Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch in United States v. Miguel Games-Perez. That case demonstrates why Judge Gorsuch is a worthy successor to Justice Antonin Scalia.
Yesterday, NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox appeared on NRATV to talk about the nomination.
And something that I don’t remember ever seeing, is the NRA sitting beside the President of the United States in a White House meeting. Yesterday, Wayne LaPierre joined representatives from Concerned Women for America, American Values, Susan B Anthony List , National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB), Chamber of Commerce, Americans for Tax Reform, Federalist Society, Leadership Institute, National Right to Life, and the Evangelical Advisory Council, to talk about advancing the nomination as fast as possible.
Gun owners should contact their U.S. Senator and urge them to confirm Judge Gorsuch.
