    Well what do you think? Good choice, bad choices? The democrats don’t seem to like him, that makes him a great choice in my opinion.

    Supposedly he is pro constitution and is a conservative. I just wonder if the democrats will bring a smear campaign against him. We will soon see.

    After watching some Senate interviews of Kagan I can't begin to understand how she was appointed. She has so far showed her liberal progressive stand.

    Democrats will definitely bring a smear campaign because that's all they can do. This guy is definitely qualified. I think his rulings will be based on the Constitution and the law and he will not try and make policy from the bench, which I believe is what you want in a supreme court justice. One of their latest issues is he's favored by the Federalist Scociety. But they voted for judge Roberts and he's a member of the society. So was Scalia and he got 98 votes in the Senate. The only reason they are against Kavanaugh is because Trump nominated him.

    Well, I most certainly think he would be better than Kennedy. ;)

    If he gets in I guess we will see. Although I gave my doubts in the decision.

    "In Heller, the Supreme Court held that handguns – the vast majority of which today are semi-automatic – are constitutionally protected because they have not traditionally been banned and are in common use by law-abiding citizens. There is no meaningful or persuasive constitutional distinction between semi-automatic handguns and semiautomatic rifles. Semi-automatic rifles, like semi-automatic handguns, have not traditionally been banned and are in common use by law-abiding citizens for self-defense in the home, hunting, and other lawful uses. Moreover, semiautomatic handguns are used in connection with violent crimes far more than semi-automatic rifles are. It follows from Heller’s protection of semi-automatic handguns that semi-automatic rifles are also constitutionally protected and that D.C.’s ban on them is unconstitutional."
