NRA Asks: Urge Your Senators to Oppose Elena Kagan's Confirmation to U.S. Supreme Court

The nomination of Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court will be decided next week, when the Senate casts the final vote on her confirmation.

The NRA has announced our strong opposition to Ms. Kagan, due to her long record of antagonism toward the Second Amendment.  Based on that record, it is very likely that as a Supreme Court Justice, Kagan would join the Court's minority that just last month issued dissenting opinions claiming the Second Amendment does not guarantee a fundamental right to keep and bear arms.

Elena Kagan represents the second time President Obama has nominated a person to the Court who aggressively opposes our right to keep and bear arms. Her confirmation would pose a direct threat to our rights for decades.

Your Senators will cast key votes that will decide if Kagan is confirmed. Please take a few minutes and contact your Senators and respectfully ask them to filibuster and oppose Kagan's confirmation.

Your feelings about the NRA itself notwithstanding, trying to prevent Elena Kagan from having anything to do with the Supreme Court is a worthwhile endeavor.

Please take the time to pass your thoughts along to your Senators.
