    Here we go again.

    First, there was Sonia Sotomayor. Then there was David Hamilton.

    Now, we have another radical, anti-gun judge that has been nominated for the federal judiciary. His name is Louis Butler, and he is so radical, he was twice rejected by the people of Wisconsin (which is, by the way, one of the most liberal states in our union).

    When Louis Butler first ran for the Wisconsin Supreme Court -- the voters rejected him by a 2-1 margin. When he was appointed to that court by Democrat Governor Jim Doyle and then stood for retention by the voters, they again rejected him. This was the first time a member of the Wisconsin Supreme Court was rejected by the voters in more than 40 years.

    More importantly, Louis Butler opposes the rights of gun owners. The right to bear arms in the Wisconsin Constitution expressly notes that this right is for personal security and "any other lawful purpose." But in State v. Fischer, Judge Butler was the deciding vote in 2006 to hold that a Wisconsin statute barring carrying a concealed weapon for any purpose, at any time, including in a vehicle, does not violate this right to personal security that the voters of Wisconsin chose to expressly protect in their state constitution.

    So he ignored the state constitution in order to impose his anti-gun views on the people of Wisconsin.

    After the landmark U.S. Supreme Court Heller case upholding Second Amendment gun rights in 2008, Louis Butler spoke at an Obama for President fundraiser and specifically mentioned "gun control" as an issue that potential Obama appointees would impact.

    "Gun control," Butler said, "may ultimately be decided, and the new appointees can tip the very balance of the court. [The] background, personal beliefs and policy decisions of the justices selected will influence how they will vote on the difficult cases before them."

    There you have it. He is a radical activist who wants to move the courts -- and our country -- in a new direction. We've already had enough "hope and change" for a lifetime. We don't need another federal judge who will use his radical "personal beliefs" to reshape our society.

    ACTION: Please contact your U.S. Senators and urge them to OPPOSE the nomination of Judge Louis Butler as U.S. District Judge for the Western District of Wisconsin. Butler was approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, and could now be voted on by the full Senate at any time.



    I have had it up to here with this un-American president taking every opportunity to :: with our rights and Constitution. I thought baby Bush was bad!

    I read that in a separate article about the man. This guy should be disbarred, or whatever the equivalent is for judges. I cannot believe that someone who is sworn to uphold the law can be so ambiguous.

    I am trying very hard to not get political on this..

    Appointing leftist judges across the country is the most damaging thing this president is doing.

    You're not alone, UnklFungus. The president's poll numbers are slipping every day.

    I don't know anything about him, but that sentence makes my blood boil. Judges are intended to be strict legal enforcers who do not have a personal opinion and do not make decisions based on a policy. They are supposed to enforce the law!

    Angry A voting contest??

    But in State v. Fischer, Judge Butler was the deciding vote in 2006 to hold that a Wisconsin statute barring carrying a concealed weapon for any purpose, at any time, including in a vehicle, does not violate this right to personal security that the voters of Wisconsin chose to expressly protect in their state constitution.
    Ignores the Constitution, to which is is sworn by oath to uphold and protect.

    Was rejected by Wisconsin citizens twice, by those who knew him well. And yet, he's now being nominated for appointment to the post in direct contravention and irrespective of the will of the (Wisconsin) People.


    After the landmark U.S. Supreme Court Heller case upholding Second Amendment gun rights in 2008, Louis Butler spoke at an Obama for President fundraiser and specifically mentioned "gun control" as an issue that potential Obama appointees would impact.

    "Gun control," Butler said, "may ultimately be decided, and the new appointees can tip the very balance of the court. [The] background, personal beliefs and policy decisions of the justices selected will influence how they will vote on the difficult cases before them."
    Believes judges should vote instead of judge, when something so vital as justice is on the line. The judiciary is about making legal judgment when justice hangs in the balance. It is not a popularity contest of "votes."


    "Oh, my rights! my rights!" some squawk. Absolutely it's about that. Liberty to be a free citizen in a free land, without a boot on the neck and a gun in the back (by felons who will find zero resistance in forced gun-free, victim-disarmament zones. THAT is exactly what's at risk, a bit more with each passing moment under such a "judge."

    Apparently, the 2A is at risk of slipping another notch on the belt of irrelevancy, in spite of Heller, in spite of what's right, in spite of the limitations to tyranny in the state constitutions and the U.S. Constitution.
