    Law Professor Calls Possible SCOTUS Nominee ‘Extremist’ For Believing Americans Have

    Law Professor Calls Possible SCOTUS Nominee ‘Extremist’ For Believing Americans Have A Right To Own And Carry Firearms
    Molly Prince

    A law professor described Judge Thomas Hardiman, a candidate for the impending Supreme Court nomination, as a “Second Amendment extremist” for his originalist view of the Constitution, specifically regarding the Second Amendment.
    Professor Adam Winkler at the University of California at Los Angeles School of Law argued that if Hardiman were confirmed, the Supreme Court would be more likely to take up cases challenging current firearm laws, lending the potential for those laws to be struck down. Consequently, with Hardiman on the Supreme Court, there would be more legal gun ownership in what are now heavily regulated states like California and Connecticut.
    “He believes the government has very little leeway in regulating guns,” Winkler told The Washington Post. “He thinks the only type of gun-control laws that are constitutionally permissible are the ones that existed at the founding.”
    Most notably, Hardiman wrote a 40-page dissent for Drake v. Filko where he argued the Second Amendment guarantees the right to carry a firearm in public “because the need for self-defense naturally exists both outside and inside the home, I would hold that the Second Amendment applies outside the home.”
    Hardiman, a judge on the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, expressed his views on how he interprets the Constitution in the dissent for Muller v. Maenza, writing, “No matter how laudable the end, the Supreme Court has long made clear that the Constitution disables the government from employing certain means to prevent, deter or detect violent crime.”
    President Donald Trump reportedly narrowed down his list of potential Supreme Court candidates to three federal appeals judges: Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh and Raymond Kethledge.
    Trump is expected to announce his nominee on July 9.

    Imagine that, a Constitutional judge.............who believes the Individual has a Right the government should not get involved with....and he's an extremist to boot, for knowing the Constitution.

    I hope Trump isn't affected by the left's whining to decide against Hardiman in order to mollify them. The selection must first and foremost be based on qualifications of the individual and his/her alignment with the Constitution, right? Trump's judgement is excellent, so let the chips fall where they may. The left can suck air.

    Were the Founders extremists? Because they are the ones that set quill to parchment and put it in the Constitution.

    The people of the United States have several rights including the right to leave if you have a problem with the fact that the Founders knew one of the methods to overthrow an oppressive government, when all else fails, is with arms and they made sure the citizens had access to that method.

    You want to control school shootings? Control the number of kids incorrectly diagnosed with ADHD and placed on drugs whose long term side effects appear to awaken the desire to commit mass murder.

    I may not know much.. But one thing I know is that Pres. Trumps never worries about mollifying the Maoist Left! That is why he is so immensely popular!

    God Bless America and God Bless Donald Trump! #MAGA

    "Professor Adam Winkler at the University of California at Los Angeles School of Law"

    This man, if I may I still call him that, is abnormal.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.
