We’ve already witnessed the influence that the NRA — the powerful protector of our Constitutional rights — can wield in something as big as a presidential election. The organization played a massive role in helping President Trump win the White House.
Recently nominated SCOTUS judge Neil Gorsuch has also been taken under the protective wing of the NRA and the red state Democrat who opposed his nomination just got some very BAD news from them.
On April 7 the NRA made clear Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) can count on facing an advertising onslaught during his re-election campaign because of his decision to vote against the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch.
Tester is one of the red state Democrats whom the NRA put on notice prior to the confirmation vote. On March 23 Breitbart News reported NRA warnings that red state Democrats voting against Gorsuch would not only find themselves campaigning against a Republican challenger for re-election but against the NRA as well. Tester can now count on the NRA opposition.
Gorsuch was confirmed to the Supreme Court on April 7 by a vote of 54 to 45. He is broadly viewed as a justice who is “very much in the mold of Justice Scalia.” Throughout his confirmation hearings Gorsuch stood firm on the crucial District of Columbia v Heller (2008) decision, telling Senate Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), “Whatever is in Heller is the law and I follow the law.”
Yet Tester voted against Gorsuch. And the NRA is making the case that Tester voted against protecting the Second Amendment rights of Montanans in the process.
