Monday evening, President Donald Trump announced and introduced his nomination to fill the seat of retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. Trump promised Kennedy he would do the right thing in selecting a replacement. It turns out that Kavanaugh and Gorsuch both clerked for Kennedy at the same time.

Many are wondering what the chances are of Kavanaugh being confirmed by Senate. Several GOP Senators said they would not vote for anyone who might overturn Roe v. Wade and Kavanaugh says that matter has long been settled.

However, Kavanaugh is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and the gun rights of the American people, as displayed when he wrote a decision in the Heller v. District of Columbia case before it reached the Supreme Court.

Trending: GAME OVER: Kavanaugh Accuser’s Story Unravels, ‘Witnesses’ Drive Spike Thru Her Coffin

(Breitbart) – In 2011, D.C. Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh used a dissenting opinion to explain that semiautomatic handguns and rifles are “commonly-owned” and therefore constitutionally protected.

His dissent came in Heller v. District of Columbia (2011), which was a suit challenging firearm regulations adopted in D.C. in the aftermath of the seminal District of Columbia v. Heller (2008).

Kavanaugh wrote:

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…

Gun control is perhaps the hottest topic that could govern this years’ midterm elections. You already know that no Democrats will vote to confirm Kavanaugh and that all it would take is 2-3 RINOs to defeat the nomination and since Roe v. Wade is not an issue, it may come down to his stand on the Second Amendment and gun rights. It promises to be a heated issue in the Senate.
