Bush Chooses Supreme Court Nominee

Recommended Posts

Hi Phil,


I share your concerns about the unknowns of John G. Roberts, Jr's views on the Second Amendment. However, by all accounts I've heard so far, he seems to be a strict constructionist, concerning the U.S. Constitution. This bodes well, if true, since he would respect the Constitution for what it plainly says and he would tend not to read unknown and untenable notions into it, i.e. the so-called and non-existent 'right to privacy', so loved by the anti-life groups. Those who respect life tend to oppose abortion and support the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms (a self and national defense right), as well as the right to protect society, in general, and innocents, in particular, from known, incorrigible killers (with a death penalty for traitors, murderers, spies, etc). This is logically consistent. Interestingly, he (Judge Roberts) is opposed by such anti-life groups as NARL. He is, and has been, vehemently opposed by such liberals as: Senators Schumer, Kennedy, Durbin, Leahy, etc. Let us hope that Judge Roberts is logically consistent. Here are some sites and articles with more information on Judge John G. Roberts, Jr.









Best, Walter

As important as this is, I would think the NRA would be all over this. Has anyone heard from them yet?

It may be one of two things. Either (A) this guy is discreetly somewhat pro-2nd Amendment, and NRA execs are intelligent enough to not publicize this, for fear of muddying an anticipated smooth confirmation process, or else (http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/cool.gif he is somewhat negative on the 2nd Amendment, but the NRA people feel that, on the whole, he is a good choice and it would be better if he is in than out.


There may be a third reason. The NRA just may not know where he stands on the 2nd Amendment. I've been looking on the net for 2 days trying to find anything that might indicate where he stands and can find nothing.

Here is a good article from the Christian Science Monitor on Judge Roberts and the confirmation battle. http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/smile.gif http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/cool.gif
