Brett Kavanaugh May Expand Gun Rights

In today’s polarized political climate it is rare for Democrats and Republicains to agree on anything.  However, with the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court, it seems members of both parties agree on something: if Brett Kavanaugh is affirmed and takes a seat on the Supreme Court, he may expand gun rights.

Various gun rights people are cheering, and people in the gun control groups are fuming.

A Kavanaugh Supreme Court May Expand Gun Rights, Senators Say

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s views on gun rights may push the court to expand Second Amendment protections, say senators and activists on both sides of the debate.

[…]

“Judge Kavanaugh is the worst nightmare for any advocate of common-sense gun violence prevention,” said Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut. “Any measure preventing gun violence is at risk if it’s Justice Kavanaugh.”

The last sentence is typical gun grabbing propaganda, meaning they are not interested in addressing the underlying issues which contribute to gun violence, all the want is gun control.

Senate Confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh

How likely is Brett Kavanaugh to be confirmed by the senate? Chances are very likely. Shortly after he was nominated by President Trump various news organizations went to work digging up dirt on Kavanaugh.

What kind of dirt did they find? Brett Kavanaugh loves baseball. He loves baseball so much he went into debt buying season tickets to the Washington Nationals.

Kavanaugh’s baseball debts: Why the nominee’s opponents are striking out.

White House spokesman Raj Shah said explained that Kavanaugh “built up the debt by buying Washington Nationals season tickets and tickets for playoff games for himself and a ‘handful’ of friends,” plus home improvements. He ran up debts in 2016 between $60,000 and $200,000 on three credit cards and a loan. Shah said some of the debts were also for home improvements.

The Trump administration knew whoever the president nominated would face extreme public criticism. Chances are Brett Kavanaugh was thoroughly vetted before he was even considered for the Supreme Court.

When the senate hearings start, this will probably be a replay of what happened to Neil Gorsuch, which was nothing. The news media, nor the senate, were able to find anything on Neil Gorsuch which discredited him from being affirmed. The same thing will probably happen to Kavanaugh.

Win For Gun Rights

This appears to be a big win for gun rights. However, let’s not count our chicks until they are hatched.

One question which may need to be addressed: How low will the gun control crowd stoop to discredit someone who appears to be a good wholesome family man?

On a personal note, after reading through various news sites, even left leaning sites, nobody has presented even a hint of evidence as to why Kavanaugh should not be affirmed by the senate.
