You've probably seen the news in your state. But in case you missed it, several media outlets are reporting that Republican Senator Lindsey Graham is "open to voting for" President Obama's anti-gun pick for the U.S. Supreme Court.
This is outrageous. Not only is Sotomayor EXTREMELY anti-gun, she has expressed racist views in multiple speeches over the years and she has proven -- in her actions and words -- that she is committed to IGNORING THE CONSTITUTION!
Why should a Republican Senator be announcing his support for this judge?
It is imperative that you contact your Senator right away. There are three main reasons why he should oppose Judge Sonia Sotomayor:
1. Anti-gun Judicial Record. Judge Sotomayor has held that there is "not a fundamental right" to keep and bear arms and that the Second Amendment -- whatever little it protects in her estimation -- does not apply to the states, only in Washington, DC.
2. Inability to Support Self-defense. When asked during the Senatorial hearings if she favored the right of self-defense, Sonia Sotomayor stated that such a proposition was an "abstract question" and that she couldn't think of a Supreme Court case that addressed that issue. (Hmm, Sonia, doesn't the Second Amendment address the issue?)
3. Misled Congress in Regard to Following the Law. Judge Sotomayor repeatedly told Senators that she would follow statutory law and existing precedents. But she's already failed to do that during her judicial career. Sotomayor has been overturned on numerous occasions
(6) by the Supreme Court and has been rebuked by both the Supreme Court and by appellate judges for not following precedents and statutes.
So does anyone really think that she will be a stickler for precedent if she is confirmed to the high Court? Never mind the fact that in her rulings and in her statements, she has ignored a very important "precedent" -- the common understanding in this country for 150 years -- that the Second Amendment protects an individual right.
At a time when President Obama is trying to shove socialism down our throats, we can't afford to have another anti-gun, anti-constitution judge on the U.S. Supreme Court.
It doesn't matter if you are a Republican, Democrat or Independent... or are liberal or conservative. You need to contact your Senator today and urge your family and friends to do the same.
URGENT ACTION: Please contact Senator Graham right away and urge him to vote against confirming Judge Sotomayor. You can contact Senator Graham by going to his webform at:

----- Pre-written letter -----
Dear Senator Graham:
I find it outrageous that you are actually going to support Judge Sonia Sotomayor!
Not only is she EXTREMELY anti-gun, she has expressed racist views in multiple speeches over the years and she has proven -- in her actions and words -- that she is committed to IGNORING THE CONSTITUTION!
Throughout her career, Judge Sonia Sotomayor has shown that she:
* Opposes the right to keep and bear arms;
* Denies there is a constitutional right to self-defense; and,
* Frequently ignores constitutional and statutory precedents.
I am very upset with your intended support for Sotomayor and will do everything I can to make sure that after your next election you will not be able to do this again.
