Johnson is the Obama loyalist who, weeks after getting the nod, made it clear to the United Conference of Mayors that, in his opinion, “the approximately 11 million people who are in the country illegally have ‘earned the right to be citizens,’” meaning when that happens, the ranks of Democrat voters will swell, allowing more anti-gun politicians to be elected and more anti-gun judges to be appointed. The 5 to 4 Supreme Court majority that ruled in Heller and McDonald will become a thing of the past. As far as anti-gun laws being passed and upheld, we ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
Coburn’s belly-aching to the press belies a culpability he shares, along with some other prominent names gun owners have been encouraged to support.
Topping the list for Johnson’s “Aye” votes was Lamar Alexander, A-rated by NRA, and confident he could vote for confirmation without any worries that would jeopardize his Association endorsement. Next giving Johnson her approval was Kelly Ayotte, someone NRA ran ads for. Also giving a thumbs ups were NRA A-raters John Barrasso, Roy Blunt, Richard Burr, Saxby Chambliss, the aforementioned Coburn, Thad Cochran, Bob Corker, Mike Enzi, Jeff Flake, Orrin Hatch, Dean Heller, John Isakson, Mike Johanns, Ron Johnson, Jerry Moran, Lisa Murkowski, Pat Roberts, John Thune, Patrick Toomey, and Roger Wicker.
FK – The No Rights that aren’t Allowed group might as well be working for the opposition… Maybe they are.
