Three months ago, the lapdog media was convinced that the confirmation of Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch was a “slam dunk.” Now, not so much.
Lynch, as you may remember, has been characterized as “Eric Holder in a skirt.” She committed, under oath, to continue to push Holder’s unconstitutional anti-gun executive amnesty. She is in favor of a semi-auto ban, which should be of interest at a time when the Justice Department is using every means possible to ban semi-autos by executive fiat.
In addition, when asked about the central pillar of Barack Obama’s anti-gun push — the universal background check/gun registry — she claimed not to really know anything about it. Which leads to one of two conclusions: Either Lynch is a liar and a perjurer or she is far too ignorant to be Attorney General.
Lynch’s nomination is particularly pivotal because she is viewed as being groomed to be the fifth anti-gun vote on the U.S. Supreme Court, replacing either Anthony Kennedy or Antonin Scalia. Of course, if Lynch were to be confirmed to the court — riding on the wings of her AG confirmation — both Heller and McDonald would be overturned. The Second Amendment, as far as the courts are concerned, would be a nullity.
FK – The SCOTUS is NOT the final arbiter of our rights. We are. Time to prep for what will be required.
More Second Amendment(our most basic right) news:
Republican Gov. Sam Brownback gave his signature to a popular bill Thursday to allow lawful concealed carry of handguns in Kansas without a permit starting this summer.
Introduced to the state Senate in January with an impressive 26 co-sponsors, the bill passed that body with ease by a sweeping 31-7 vote before heading to the House in March where it was approved by a healthy 85-39 bipartisan margin.
“Responsible gun ownership, for protection and sport, is a right inherent in our Constitution,” Brownback said at Thursday’s signing ceremony. “It is a right that Kansans hold dear and have repeatedly and overwhelmingly reaffirmed a commitment to protecting.”
FK – One wonders how a politician with a clue actually got elected…
There are Kentuckians who are working on catching up.
