America stands just one Supreme Court justice away from having their 2nd Amendment rights stripped, and only the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh can stop this, says the NRA.
In a recent TV ad meant to bolster enthusiasm for Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court, the NRA reminds voters that approximately four — FOUR — justices do not believe that Americans have a right to privately own a firearm, and will vote against that right at the first opportunity.
"Let me ask you a simple question. Do you believe you have a right to defend yourself and your family with a firearm in your own home?" leader of the NRA's political arm, Chris Cox, says in the ad. "Four Supreme Court justices say you do, but four say you don’t … because the deciding vote announced he’s retiring."
"And your most fundamental right to self-defense could be extinguished," he warns.
Cox is, of course, referencing the 2008 Heller decision in which outgoing justice Kennedy provided the swing vote on whether or not the 2nd Amendment was an individual right, meant to protect private ownership of a firearm.
As the Left goes on ad nauseam about precedent regarding Roe, they have been waiting for the first opportunity to get a 5-4 decision in the opposite direction on guns. This is not some cooked up right-wing fantasy, it's reality, the NRA says.
"This is our opportunity to protect the one freedom and guarantees all the others,” Cox continues, "the freedom that makes America different from every other country on earth. The Second Amendment is at stake. America is at stake."
"We don’t care if we’re the last one in the arena. We will never, ever stop fighting for this freedom," Cox concludes. "We are the National Rifle Association of America, and we are freedom’s safest place."
