They were already motivated. California alone registered 330,000 Democrats recently. If that's not motivation, I don't know what is.
I don't care if there are 2 times as many registered Democrats as there are people in CA. What concerns me is the Democrats in PA, WI, NC, MI, MN, FL. That's where this election is decided.

What does it matter if Biden gets 51% of the CA votes, or 99%?
An extra 10 or 15 million CA votes won't change the Electoral votes.

Many of us voted for Trump literally for this purpose...we knew several Scotus appointments would be made.
That's the main reason I voted for him, and will again. However, for me at least, it's never a bad thing to step back from the visceral, and look at how various scenarios may play out, considering the present and historic actions we've seen from the various factions involved. YMMV

Because there is more than just the Presidential election at stake in CA.

There are House and Senate seats. The House flipped to the Democrats in 2018 because of election fraud in 31 district seats.

No more!

There is no doubt what the Democrats would do. None whatsoever.

They would have their next progressive socialist lined up for fast tracking on Monday morning.
They would until Monday?

WWDD?
What Would Democrats Do, if the roles would be flipped?
They would be righteous and fair and wait until after the election?
Yeah, right.
Eff them.
Nominate and confirm a new Justice NOW!

Now’s the time to get it done. The Trump blitzkrieg is still in full swing! The Dem party is imploding. Winners know how to take advantage of their opponents weakness........ its time to go for the jugular!!

Man... Fox News is playing that funereal music between segments that they played ad infinitum for "the death of John McCain"... It's like nails on a chalkboard...

Switching exclusively to OAN and Newsmax, at least for the foreseeable future...

I was called a “never-Trumper” when I said Kavanaugh was a bad pick.
I think this Amy whateverhernameis would actually be a worse pick. Hopefully I'm wrong, but I have a bad feeling she would not be friendly to 2A issues.

call me a jerk...but the radical left that she was part of does not value human life...so good riddance.

it's so funny that the selfish broad refused to retire when Odumbo was in office. The commies are still ticked about that.

Why do you say that? Because she is a woman?

This is a non-2A friendly dissent? Please point to a more 2A dissent or ruling from any SCOTUS judge or potential nominee....



History is consistent with common sense: it demonstrates that legislatures have the power to prohibit dangerous people from possessing guns. But that power extends only to people who are dangerous. Founding-era legislatures did not strip felons of the right to bear arms simply because of their status as felons. Nor have the parties introduced any evidence that founding-era legislatures imposed virtue-based restrictions on the right; such restrictions applied to civic rights like voting and jury service, not to individual rights like the right to possess a gun. In 1791—and for well more than a century afterward— legislatures disqualified categories of people from the right to bear arms only when they judged that doing so was necessary to protect the public safety.

[The federal and Wisconsin laws] would stand on solid footing if their categorical bans were tailored to serve the governments’ undeniably compelling interest in protecting the public from gun violence. But their dispossession of all felons—both violent and nonviolent—is unconstitutional as applied to Kanter.… Neither Wisconsin nor the United States has introduced data sufficient to show that disarming all nonviolent felons substantially advances its interest in keeping the public safe. Nor have they otherwise demonstrated that Kanter himself shows a proclivity for violence. Absent evidence that he either belongs to a dangerous category or bears individual markers of risk, permanently disqualifying Kanter from possessing a gun violates the Second Amendment.

Your post got me to search a bit. My opposition to her getting the last seat was she was literally never a judge of any kind before being put on a federal appeals court. She has zero record before. Your post made me look to see if she has put her signature on something.

I found this in a brief search.

https://www.nationalreview.com/bench-memos/judge-barretts-dissent-in-second-amendment-case/

She wrote a dissent when her fellow judges voted to strip 2nd amendment rights from a citizen. Basically her view was the founders never intended to take rights from a whole category of people UNLESS they were proven to be a real danger to the community. IE, all felons (bad check writers, etc) should not be barred from weapons.

Without reading the whole opinion, it sounds like she is an Originalist AND a Second Amendment supporter.
