Sotomayor hearings begin today

It’s all over the news that the confirmation hearings for Obama’s first Supreme Court appointment begin today. I think it’s painfully obvious that she’s no friend to gun owners, and certainly no friend to your Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. What remains to be seen is whether or not the Senate will actually ask tough questions, or if they’re going throw her a succession of softball pitches.

Now, I am not really fired up about this issue…yet. Mainly because Sotomayor is the replacement for a liberal Justice, in terms of the balance of the Court, gun owners are not necessarily loosing that much ground with her appointment. However, if it comes out during her confirmation hearings that she’s rabidly anti-gun and anti-incorporation, you can bet I’m going to be fired up about this.
