Obama Nominates Court of Appeals Judge Who Plotted to Destroy American Firearms Industry

Obama respects the Second Amendment like Stalin respected Poland. And if you doubt that… well... take a look at his Court of Appeals nominee.

As New York’s Solicitor General, Halligan was one of the chief lawyers responsible for New York’s baseless and politically motivated efforts to bankrupt gun manufacturers using frivolous litigation.

Halligan’s public hatred for firearms was only matched by her zealotry inside the courtroom. In a speech on May 5, 2003, Halligan called for “handgun manufacturers [to be held] liable for criminal acts committed with handguns.”

Certainly, no other manufacturer of another item — whether it be cars, baseball bats, or anything else — would be held liable for the criminal misuse of its product. And, as Halligan well knows, the application of that principle to firearms would surely eliminate the manufacture of firearms in America.

After attempts of legal extortion of the firearms industry were repudiated by a bipartisan vote in Congress, Halligan’s office did not let up on attacking gun rights, signing a legal brief calling for New York courts to declare the federal Gun Makers’ Protection Act unconstitutional.

Halligan’s nomination has been blocked so far with the exception of a dissent from Lisa Murkowski.  The New York Times and every other media outlet is demanding that she be confirmed. But here’s a question. Would they confirm a nominee who tried to hold newspapers accountable for copycat shootings caused by their high capacity media coverage? Or would they consider her to be a person who had participated in an unacceptable attack on the Bill of Rights and should not be allowed to be in a position where she could do even worse harm to civil rights?

    Their 'logic' and 'ethics' have always been highly situational. Keep pointing it out (Lord knows they give plenty of examples), spreading the knowledge, and it might settle in enough fertile minds.

    Oh my, but then again, radical revolutionaries go for broke, and the court system is one such address to disarm the public, a plan which is coming to fruition, if patriots do not stop it in its tracks – http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/03/02/explosive-dhs

    Obama chaf, no surprise here on this kind of person being given and appointment
    hopefuly she will not be put on the bench to adulturate the court of law. It is criminal
    what leftists do to our systems, Obama's chickens coming home to roost ever where
    he sends them, this tool needs to be disbarred, maybe she does not have a law license
    that is valid, investigating her would be a good idea……………………William

    It’s not like anyone in this administration actually cares about the American People or the American Way of Life. They seek to destroy our security, economy, and health. We are letting it happen. I didn’t, but American’s voted for this so its in God’s hands now.
