|NRA Opposes Nomination of Merrick Garland to the U.S. Supreme Court
Fairfax, Va. – The executive director of the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action, Chris W. Cox, released the following statement regarding President Barack Hussein Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court of the United States:
“With Justice Scalia’s tragic passing, there is no longer a majority of support among the justices for the fundamental, individual right to own a firearm for self-defense. Four justices believe law-abiding Americans have that right – and four justices do not. President Barack Hussein Obama has nothing but contempt for the Second Amendment and law-abiding gun owners. Obama has already nominated two Supreme Court justices who oppose the right to own firearms and there is absolutely no reason to think he has changed his approach this time. In fact, a basic analysis of Merrick Garland’s judicial record shows that he does not respect our fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms for self-defense. Therefore, the National Rifle Association, on behalf of our five million members and tens of millions of supporters across the country, strongly opposes the nomination of Merrick Garland for the U.S. Supreme Court.”
NRA Member Action Needed to Oppose Obama Supreme Court Nominee
On Wednesday, the National Rifle Association announced its strong opposition to President Barrack Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to the United States Supreme Court.
NRA members’ voices need to be heard! Rumors are starting to swirl that anti-gun organizations are beginning to mount pressure on U.S. Senators to support Garland.
Contact your U.S. Senators now to oppose Obama’s attempt to stack the Supreme Court against our Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Let your Senators know that you oppose the nomination of Merrick Garland. Garland’s record of opposing the Second Amendment is clear – he simply cannot be trusted on our rights and must be opposed!
The U.S. Senate will be in recess for the next two weeks. Please try to visit your Senators while they’re back in your state and let them know you want them to oppose Garland’s confirmation.
Freedom’s Safest Place | Hypocrisy
The Hollywood celebrities, political elites and billionaires who attack the Second Amendment want to take our God-given freedom away.
Yet at the core of the Second Amendment is the eternal truth that no life is more worthy of armed protection than another. The National Rifle Association fights for the protection of these liberties. The NRA is Freedom’s Safest Place.

Crooked Hillary Clinton Always Does What’s Right?
CNN reported last Friday that former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, now a gun control advocate campaigning for Crooked Hillary Clinton for president, told the news organization, “Time and time again, Hillary has done and said what is right.”
But if you’re not so sure about that, you aren’t alone. Gallup reports that when asked for the first word or phrase that comes to mind when Clinton’s name is mentioned, 40 percent of Americans say “dishonest,” “liar, “don’t trust her,” “poor character,” “dislike her,” “criminal,” “crooked,” “thief,” “belongs in jail,” or “wouldn’t be good for the country.”
And Giffords’ glowing endorsement of Mrs. Clinton was not the only truth-bender that gun control supporters were responsible for last week.

“Only Eight Years of President Hillary Can Take the Supreme Court Away From Conservatives”
That headline on the Daily Beast website succinctly lays out the devastating threat to our liberty that defines the coming November elections—demanding that we as NRA members mobilize as never before.
You can bet that a Crooked Hillary Clinton Supreme Court will make sure to carry out her threat to “take back the Second Amendment” and that the protections of the First Amendment on free assembly and free speech—as exercised to perfection by NRA members—will be erased.
