Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland has a 20-year track record of hostility towards the Second Amendment and despite this fact many Republicans in the Senate are in favor of meeting with Garland and holding confirmation hearings.
Americans are in danger of seeing our Second Amendment rights stripped away if Senate Republicans cave in and confirm Obama's Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland.
In spite of promises from the GOP leadership, National Public Radio reports that someone in the Republican conference sent a "back-channel message to the White House." Whoever it was, they promised Obama that they could deliver enough Republican votes to confirm Garland and that "it wouldn't be a fight." (Source)
These seven Republican Senators have already scheduled meetings with Obama's anti-gun nominee:
- Mark Kirk (R-IL)
- Kelly Ayotte (R-NH)
- Susan Collins (R-ME)
- Rob Portman (R-OH)
- Jeff Flake (R-AZ)
- Roy Blunt (R-MO)
- James Inhofe (R-OK)
Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) became "incredibly uncomfortable" when asked about Garland, as did Senators Joni Ernst (R-IA) and Bob Corker (R-TN).

Merrick Garland does not believe that Americans have an individual right to keep and bear arms... and seven Republicans have scheduled meetings with him, three are too uncomfortable to talk about him, and one needs his spokesman to talk for him??
Jesus said in Luke 22:36, "He who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one."
Our treasured Second Amendment right is confirmed by the "Prince of Peace" who commanded us to be armed for personal defense.
Merrick Garland believes the exact opposite. Garland was one of only two federal judges on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals who tried to overrule the 2008 Heller versus D.C. case, which affirmed your individual right to keep and bear arms.
Merrick Garland is a major threat to the Second Amendment and that is why we believe he is unfit for for the Supreme Court!
