Elena Kagan at gun range???
According to two witnesses, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia took fellow Justice Elena Kagan out for a lesson in skeet shooting at his shooting club in Virginia last week.
The witnesses saw Scalia at the Fairfax Rod and Gun Club, where he is a member, around noon on Wednesday of last week. He was with a woman who was noticeably diminutive in height, like Kagan, who stands at about five feet three inches. The witnesses, who got a very close look at the pair, say that the woman was the newest Supreme Court Justice.

This could be good, maybe he'll convert her. Or maybe bad, she offs a good justice in an accident and O gets to appoint another.

Well it was skeet shooting, not IDPA, but generally antis and sheep come out more PRO than they went in. I'm guessing BHO won't be on the guest list any time soon, though.

In general, learning about guns is the first step towards realizing they are not evil. If she is smart enough to get to the position she is in, she should be smart enough to realize what a useful tool guns can be.
After that, it is just a question of her view of the people of this country. Wether she thinks we should have power, or if she fears us and wants to keep the power out of our hands.

Regardless of how far or left they may be...a Judge of any level better learn the usefulness of a gun. There will always be somebody who does not agree with their decision. Sounds promisinig that she went to a social setting with one of the more conservative members of that bench, and at a gun range no less.

I never got the impression that she was all the way anti. I always got the impression that she was just ambivalent towards guns. A part from having to defend the government's anti-position on guns, I don't think she has any record as to whether or not she is actually anti.
Honestly, even her arguments before the court re. guns (as solicitor general) don't necessarily speak to her true feelings. Even if she were a card carrying member of the NRA she still would have had to argue the government's position.

Excellent - an intelligent comment like this is always refreshing and heartening to see. What most people fail to grasp is that a good judge works with the law, case and precedent. Stare decisis, etc. It doesn't matter how Justice Kagan feels about firearms from a personal perspective. Maybe she's crazy about 'em. What's important is that she rules according to Constitutional law.
even her arguments before the court re. guns (as solicitor general) don't necessarily speak to her true feelings.
It is also very well known that she and Scalia have a great relationship - it's one of the reasons she was a qualified candidate for the job.

This hit national news this evening.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
