Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee led by perennial anti-gun Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California made it clear in their opening statements Monday in the first confirmation hearing of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court that the Second Amendment is in their crosshairs.

Nominating Judge Gorsuch to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by last year’s death of Justice Antonin Scalia underscored why November’s election mattered. Monday’s remarks by Feinstein and colleagues Patrick Leahy of Vermont and Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island set things in concrete.

Many people, including conservative Democrats in Washington State’s Mason and Grays Harbor counties, will justifiably argue that all Democrats shouldn’t be judged by the remarks of Feinstein and her Capitol Hill colleagues. Keep that in perspective, as the Gorsuch hearings continue this week.

The Fox News “live blog” of Mondays’ hearing noted, “Feinstein indicates she will focus on Gorsuch’s views on abortion, same-sex marriage, health care rights and 2nd Amendment during the hearing…When speaking about the Second Amendment, Feinstein warns against originalism, and says the founders intention to make the constitution a framework ‘intended to evolve as our country evolves.’”
