Given the circuitous route that a great many men and women take in their path through the judiciary, there is often a glut of movement in the opinions of the nation’s high courts.

Getting to the upper echelon in any politically charged court system is a task in and of itself, and only the most studious and poignant judged will make it to the Supreme Court of The United States.  Given that this position is filled only when one justice retires or passes on, and the fact that this position is appointed not elected, makes it all the more special when your name is ever considered for the gig.

The man who finds himself so spectacularly lucky this go-round is Brett Kavanaugh; President Donald Trump’s second Supreme Court nominee so far.  Kavanaugh, who has not yet been raked over the coals by the liberal leftists in congressional confirmation hearings, will likely be required to endure a number of baseless and abhorrent accusations during the inquisition, and on a number of subjects.

Certainly, the Second Amendment will be one of those subjects.  Thankfully, Kavanaugh has had plenty of experience defending the right to bear arms.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS), has made clear in judicial writings that banning a certain “class of arms” is like banning a particular “category of speech.”

He referenced these things in the dissent to Heller v. District of Columbia (2011), a suit challenging firearm regulations adopted in D.C. in the aftermath of District of Columbia v. Heller (2008).

The Los Angeles Times quotedKavanaugh writing, “A ban on a class of arms is not an incidental regulation. It is equivalent to a ban on a category of speech.”

Kavanaugh’s statement indicates his understanding that the rights protected by the Bill of Rights are of a cloth and possessed by the people on an individual basis. And his use of a First Amendment example to demonstrate the danger of an attack on the Second is a clear indication that he knows that each natural right is to be protected with vigor.

The Times went apoplectic over this, calling Kavanaugh an “activist conservative” and warning that he could strike down “assault-weapons” bans and “decree that law-abiding Americans have a right to carry a gun in public.”

Now this is a man who understands the difference between the 2nd Amendment is simply “having guns”.

Should our nation devolve into Civil War, as a hypothetical example, would our citizen cash of shotguns, pistols, and rifles be any match for the men and women of the armed services, with their tanks and machine guns?  Likely not, until the citizenship was united as one.  Then perhaps the sheer volume of firepower at our disposal, combined with presumed military defections due to Civil War, would be able to stave off the coming tyranny.

With our partisan conditioning, we have been trained to despise one another, and not the government who is failing us so miserably.  It’s a trick that those in power have been playing for ages, and it’s time to spread the word about how to stop it.

And this is why, when Brett Kavanugh says that banning certain types of guns is not acceptable, we should listen. The louder the bang that We The People can make, the more in control we are of our nation and our public servants.
