GRNC Alert 7-24-11:
Obama Packing Courts With Anti-Gun Radicals
Read this important message from our friends at Gun Owners of America.
The President is ratcheting up his war against gun owners once again, and has nominated another anti-gun zealot for a high post in the U.S. court system.
Caitlin Halligan has made a career of attacking gun owners in New York, and now President Obama is giving her a platform to expand her hatred of the Second Amendment to the rest of the nation.
We have to stop this Presidential court-packing scheme. But we don't have much time -- the Senate could be voting on this anti-gun nominee this week!

Deliver this message:
The nomination of Caitlin Halligan -- formerly the solicitor general of New York -- to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals would put a rabid anti-gun activist in a position where she could do maximum damage to the Second Amendment.
As New York's solicitor general, Halligan was one of the chief lawyers responsible for New York's baseless and politically motivated efforts to bankrupt gun manufacturers using frivolous litigation. In so doing, Halligan proved that she places liberal political activism above fealty to the law.
Halligan's public hatred for firearms was only matched by her zealotry inside the courtroom. In a speech on May 5, 2003, Halligan called for "handgun manufacturers [to be held] liable for criminal acts committed with handguns."
Certainly, no other manufacturer would be held liable for the criminal misuse of its product. And, as Halligan well knows, the application of that principle to firearms would surely eliminate the manufacture of firearms in America.
After Congress passed the gun makers' protection act, Halligan's office signed a brief calling for New York courts to declare this law "unconstitutional" for overstepping Congress' powers.
This, at a time when Halligan would no doubt hold the anti-gun ObamaCare is constitutional because there are no effective limits on Congress' powers.
For all of these reasons, I urge you to vote against the Halligan nomination. Gun Owners of America will score this vote in its Congressional Rating.
