    Senate to Consider Anti-Gunner for Powerful Ninth Circuit Court

    I have strongly supported President Trumps judicial nominations, but this one is for the wrong guy in the wrong place.

    [TAKE ACTION] Oppose the Nomination of the Gun-Hating Mark Bennett!

    Published: 16 May 2018

    Senate to Consider Anti-Gunner for Powerful Ninth Circuit Court


    Click on the Take Action button to urge your Senators to oppose the nomination of Mark Bennett to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court. You can also call the Senate at (202) 224-3121.

    Contact Your Senators to Oppose Bennett!

    Dear Friend:

    Repeatedly, President Donald Trump has criticized San Francisco’s leftist Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals for assuming the role of “super-legislature” and blocking his agenda.

    Yet, Trump has nominated a leftist, anti-gunner to fill a seat on that court, and the Senate Judiciary Committee has approved that nomination -- despite GOA’s opposition to the nomination.

    The nominee for the nation’s second highest court is Mark Jeremy Bennett who, as Hawaii’s Attorney General, opposed the Supreme Court’s determination in Heller that the Second Amendment is an individual right.

    Bennett also opposed GOA’s right to participate in the legislative process, which was affirmed in the Citizens United decision.

    But, in spite of Bennett’s reliably left-wing leanings on these and virtually ever other issue, Trump and weak-kneed Republicans seem inclined to reward him with a promotion and pivotal seat on one of the country’s most important courts.

    Understandably, Democrats are giddy. In fact, anti-gun Senator Mazie Hirono called him “refreshing.”

    The left-wing Alliance for Justice, which has slow-walked all of the rest of Trump’s judicial nominees, approves of Bennett, calling him “mainstream.”

    So here’s a suggestion: since anti-gun senators are blocking a vast number of Trump’s judicial and executive nominees, Republicans would be fools to consider Bennett before the entire backlog of conservatives has been approved by the Senate.

    Think about it: Senator Chuck Schumer and his gang of anti-gunners are blocking dozens of pro-gun nominees.

    If we reward them by passing gun controllers while blocking constitutionalists, we have every right to ask why keeping Republicans in power in the Senate confers any advantage.

    So please take action. Urge your Senators to oppose the nomination of Mark Bennett.

    In liberty,

    PS: You can also call the Senate at (202) 224-3121 to voice your opposition. And did you know that GOA is expending vast resources battling gun confiscation orders, fighting bump stock bans, and more? Could you contribute to the fight? Even $10 or $20 goes a long way!

    Yeah, this was posted about a month ago or so. Still not a good idea, wonder why he's still in the running.

    Well, just like when he signed the budget bill which includes funding for planned parenthood, he'll just say that he'll never do it again. Then he will figure people will give him a free pass (like he is used to), or just forget.

    Would someone please let me know how we have spun out of control?
    Has the captain let go of the wheel?
    Or could we please try to find a way to be a bit more kind?

    Well, my post- which is the truth- shouldn't be a thread killer.

    Well, unfortunately, you are exactly right.

    Now watch the excuses start popping up from those who think he is perfect in every way.
    Yeah I voted for Trump and I'll probably vote for him again, but I'll be the first to admit that he sure has his faults and it's not only my right, but my duty, to raise hell when he does something stupid. Like This!

    Maybe, maybe not. Some judges & politicos have had looong lives. Look at RBG !!

    Best to remove his nomination, and submit someone more 2nd Amend friendly.

    I see absolutely no logical reason to nominate this gun grabber !!!!

    Yes, unfortunately it is. The outcry was loud, but only brief.
