Justices, judges and 'judicial activism'

Thursday’s confirmation of Elena Kagan as the 112th justice to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court was one more signal that the court system, because of the people elected or appointed to the bench, is in serious trouble if not completely off the tracks, if one listens to the critics.


'Go to the mat against Kagan'

In the firearms community, there is great concern about Kagan’s philosophy toward the Second Amendment. Calling it a matter of “settled law” was an evasive political maneuver for Kagan during the Senate Judiciary hearings. That’s essentially the same thing Sonia Sotomayor said about the right to keep and bear arms, and one need only look at her support for the dissent in McDonald v. City of Chicago to understand the court, the Constitution and the country doesn’t need another justice like that.

Lead ammo ban sought from EPA threatens gun owners, game agencies, say critics

“There is simply no scientific evidence that the use of traditional ammunition is having an adverse impact on wildlife populations that would require restricting or banning the use of traditional ammunition beyond current limitations, such as the scientifically based restriction on waterfowl hunting,” said NSSF President Steve Sanetti.


Arizona is a state that has seen an invasion of illegal immigrants continue unabated for years. Illegal immigration has taken its toll on Arizona in the form of billions of dollars spent on social services, education and prison costs.

Much more devastating, though, has been the human toll it has taken. Human and drug smuggling, kidnappings, drop houses and the murder of immigrants and American citizens are just some of the byproducts of our porous border.

Gun rights versus gun wrongs

Evergreen State gun rights activists are already bracing for what they expect will be the full exploitation of not one, but two park shooting incidents in July when the Legislature convenes in January; one that produced two fatalities at Lake Sammamish in Issaquah and the other that left one man wounded and seven people jailed in Pasco.

Focus on Kagan shows importance of good justices on WA Supreme Court

If Kagan is confirmed to the high court, as is predicted thanks to at least five Senate Republicans, citizens interested in protecting their firearm civil rights may want to pay closer attention to who sits on their state’s supreme court. Thanks to the authors of Washington’s constitution, the individual right to bear arms is well protected, but that does not guarantee that it will not be eroded.
