What Is Obama's Supreme Court
Nominee Merrick Garland's Record On Guns?

By Outdoor Hub Social. March 16th, 2016

Merrick Garland is currently the Chief Judge of the Washington, D.C. Court of Appeals. According to some organizations like the Judicial Crisis Network, Garland is considered "left-leaning on gun control." This opinion comes from two cases which he presided over involving the Second Amendment.

One of these cases happened in 2007 when he voted to review a restrictive gun law in the District of Columbia that had previously been shot down. The law, which was eventually found unconstitutional by in the Supreme Court in the District of Columbia v. Heller decision, required guns to be kept unloaded and disassembled, unless they were being used for legal recreational activities. Previously a U.S. District Court ruled against the ban in favor of Heller and the D.C. Circuit upheld that ruling. Garland then voted on behalf of the court for the D.C. Circuit to reconsider their own previous ruling. Ultimately Garland's decision was not a ruling against gun rights, but it still raises some eyebrows.

One clear sign that Garland may be anti-gun came from his NRA v. Reno ruling. .......

Despite most GOP resistance to such an appointment, we hear that even so, amazingly, three GOP members actually want it to go ahead. The dangers of a premature choice are considerable, in particular with respect to future SCOTUS decisions on the Second Amendment which is already potentially very vulnerable. The entire Bill of Rights itself is under ever more threat, all the time.
