We believe any individual who does not agree that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right and who does not respect our God-given right of selfdefense should not serve on any court, much less the highest court in the land. Given the importance of this issue, the vote on Judge Sotomayor’s confirmation will be considered in NRA’s future candidate evaluations.

Letter to the Senate on the Sotomayor confirmation vote.
[It’s no different than a judge who does not agree the 13th amendment guarantees a fundamental right. It’s repugnant and a sign of a great sickness in our society that we even have to debate this.–Joe]
