From my weekly newsblast from NSSF, I have this little gem:
ANTI-GUN GROUP AHSA ENDORSES SOTOMAYOR . . . The American Hunters and Shooters Association (AHSA) — a well known anti-gun group that attempts to position themselves as pro-gun — has endorsed the nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor for Supreme Court Justice. While AHSA sees nothing wrong with the SCOTUS nominee, Sens. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and John Cornyn (R-TX), two stalwart defenders of firearms rights, disagree.
You may remember just two weeks ago we talked abou AHSA on Gun Nuts Radio, and speculated that maybe, just maybe they really were trying to change their tune. We then dismissed that speculation as madness, because as evidenced by their endorsing Sotomayor, AHSA has no interest in an individual right to keep and bear arms. Remember, while we may have only won Heller by 5-4 split, even the dissenting justices agreed that the 2nd Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms.
