OK, Here it is ...Neil Gorsuch is the Trump Pick for SCOTUS. What say you???.
I agree. I wrote both of my Senators, Cruz and Cornyn, to ask Judge Gorsuch his 2A views and opinions. I'm just grateful that Trump won, and that the SCOTUS will be leaning more conservative in the future.Jury will be out for me with him on the 2nd until I hear more. He hasn't dealt with many cases on this. There is one ruling I read about from the 10th circuit where he concurred, which conflated being armed with being "dangerous". I don't like the sound of that, but he did not write an opinion on the case so I don't know what his thought process was.
I like what I'm hearing on most things, though, so I'd like to believe he has an intellectually honest and consistent judicial philosophy that will apply to the 2nd in the same way it applies to everything else. Still doesn't mean I'll always be happy, just as I was not entirely happy with Scalia at times (on the topic of the 2nd, at least).
If Hillary had won, it would have been best if they could have immediately confirmed Garland, and not given her the chance (at least not to replace Scalia... Ginsberg may retire soon too).Couldn't imagine who we would be talking about if Hitlery got elected. Thank the good Lord we won't ever have to worry about that!
She has threatened to resign if Trump was elected, now if she will only to follow through with the threat.If Hillary had won, it would have been best if they could have immediately confirmed Garland, and not given her the chance (at least not to replace Scalia... Ginsberg may retire soon too).
