But let's suppose your assumption is right. Whoever is nominated STILL has to go through a Senate confirmation. Are you saying you lack the confidence in the Republicans in the Senate from blocking any extreme appointments?
This level of "doom and gloom" is only benefiting two groups - manufacturers and sellers. And while I think it's great for them, these fears are not grounded in how the system actually works.
Sotomayor and Kagan lied to Congress in their confirmation hearings when asked about their opinion on the 2nd Amendment RTKBA.
Once appointed, they went on to join the dissenting liberal activist judges in stating that there is no individual right to keep and bear arms.
I see that you are from Illinois and likely a union type that would gladly trade in his guns to get Obama four more years of power.
