    Not good but expected. At least she is not replacing a strong justice like scalia. She is replacing a fairly liberal view from the court anyway.

    Statement on Elena Kagan’s Confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court

    Today, the U.S. Senate confirmed Elena Kagan to the highest Court in the land. To NRA members and gun owners nationwide, Ms. Kagan presents a clear and present danger to the right to keep and bear arms. Her political record reveals that she does not believe the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right and, in her recent testimony, she refused to acknowledge respect for the God-given right of self-defense. That is why, more than a month ago, the NRA announced its strong opposition to Elena Kagan’s confirmation to the Court. In that announcement, it was made very clear that this vote matters and will be considered in the NRA's candidate evaluations.
    The U.S. Supreme Court has affirmed that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental, individual right that applies to all law-abiding Americans. Nonetheless, during the hearings Ms. Kagan refused to state her support for the Second Amendment, saying only that the matter was "settled law." When asked about the Heller decision, Justice Sonia Sotomayor used the phrase "settled law" repeatedly during her confirmation hearings to win support. Justice Sotomayor then worked to destroy the Second Amendment in the McDonald case. We have no doubt that Ms. Kagan shares the same view of the Second Amendment.
    Since she has no judicial record, we have only her political record to examine. And that political record demonstrates a clear hostility to our right to keep and bear arms. As a clerk for Justice Thurgood Marshall, Ms. Kagan said she was "not sympathetic" to a challenge to Washington, D.C.’s ban on firearms. As a domestic policy advisor in the Clinton White House, a colleague described her as "immersed" in Clinton’s aggressive assaults on the Second Amendment. As U.S. Solicitor General, Ms. Kagan chose not to file a brief last year in the landmark McDonald case, thus taking the position that incorporating the Second Amendment and applying it to the states was of no interest to the Obama Administration or the federal government.
    The expansive support that self-defense laws, the decisions in the historic Heller and McDonald cases, and the Second Amendment enjoy from the American public is a clear indication that Elena Kagan’s radical views are out of the mainstream. Any nominee, that far out-of-step with the American people, should not be on the Supreme Court.
    The nomination and confirmation of two justices with an inherent bias against the Second Amendment is a direct assault on our treasured freedom. The fate of our Second Amendment hangs perilously - by one vote. The need for eternal vigilance on the part of every American has never been greater.

    Just one more reason to vote this socialist out of office in '12 and overturn the congress in November. If this drunk with power president wins a second term, he will get to replace a constitutional scholar on the supreme court with not only a judicial activist, but someone who in not even qualfied just like the two clowns that have been recently appointed by this president. If this happens, the McDonald and Heller Case are in jeopardy of being overturned. Sotomeyer, in her attempt to have Chicago prevail in the McDonald Case, also attempted to overturn Heller, which was only decided a year ago. This is would have been highly irregular for even a judicial activist. OBama doesn't care. He is out to change the very fabric which made this country great.

    GOA On Anti-Second Amendment Elena Kagan...

    Senate Confirms Kagan Written by John Velleco Thursday, 05 August 2010 16:09

    By a vote of 63-37, the U.S. Senate confirmed anti-Second Amendment radical Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court.
    Ms. Kagan’s confirmation to the nation’s highest Court Court is a troubling development for supporters of the right to keep and bear arms. Although she possesses no judicial track record, all of the available evidence suggests that Ms. Kagan will continue to be a politically driven, forceful advocate of restrictive gun laws.

    Over the course of her confirmation hearings, Ms. Kagan insisted that the Supreme Court decisions in Heller and McDonald should be treated as precedent and ‘settled law,’ but she also never would say whether she understands the Second Amendment to protect a fundamental right that predates the Constitution.

    Her acknowledgment of Heller and McDonald notwithstanding, the newest justice is in no way precluded from ruling that almost any gun law -- including gun owner registration, purchasing limits, waiting periods, private sale background checks, and more -- is consistent with the Constitution.

    The vote to confirm Elena Kagan flies right in the face of the American people, who overwhelmingly support the individual right to keep and bear arms. Additionally, a CBS news poll reported on July 13 that only 21% of the American public thinks the Senate should confirm Elena Kagan.

    With this confirmation now complete—and with Ms. Kagan likely to be on the Court for decades—Senators who voted for Kagan must return to their states and face the voters not only this November, but in upcoming elections as well.

    Continued infiltration to undermine the Constitution by those that DO NOT HOLD these truth self evident. Sedition by any other name.

    I have congratulations also---------the kenyan has pulled off another win in his column of sickos. Where does he find these people?? His entire staff, advisers, czars, and appointees are among the worst in the country. What ever happened to selecting the most honest, moral, ethical, and people with integrity---is it a lost art?? Maybe he is selecting the best he knows--now that is a scary thought. What do we expect from someone who sat under a "preacher" for his whole life and doesn't know what he believed in? From someone who moved from ghetto community organizer to the presidency in two years?? From a Kenyan muslim village to a country where 80% supposedly believe in God(not allah)?? From one whose financial backers belong on the "post office wall" ??
    Yep, my congratulations to the kenyan. He is rising to the top of his game--and we, our children, and theirs will suffer from and be paying for it.
