Say it isn't so!!! Anyone have anything else on this?
"Trump has nominated former Hawaii Attorney General Mark Jeremy Bennett for the 9th Circuit. A hearing was held yesterday in the Senate's Judiciary Committee.
When Heller went to the Supreme Court, Mr. Bennett signed onto an amicus brief arguing that the 2nd Amendment does not apply to the States and that the 2nd Amendment does not "explicitly guarantee an individual right to own a gun for specified private purposes".
The 9th Circus has been the bane of gun owners in the Western U.S. and the chief tool of Second Amendment infringement out here. I was hopeful that Trump would make pro-2A appointments to this court, but apparently not. We are still f!@#ed."
