If you haven't already done so I urge you to write your senators to tell them you oppose Holder's nomination. I figure the chances that he WON'T be confirmed are a tad better than a rabbit's chances in a room full of hungy wolves but we at least need to let our congress critters know what we think.

The Judiciary Committee members are:
Patrick J. Leahy
Chairman, D-Vermont

Edward M. Kennedy
D-Massachusetts

Joseph R. Biden, Jr.
D-Delaware

Herb Kohl
D-Wisconsin

Dianne Feinstein
D-California

Russell D. Feingold
D-Wisconsin

Charles E. Schumer
D-New York

Richard J. Durbin
D-Illinois

Benjamin L. Cardin
D-Maryland

Sheldon Whitehouse
D-Rhode Island

Arlen Specter
Ranking Member, R-Pennsylvania

Orrin G. Hatch
R-Utah

Charles E. Grassley
R-Iowa

Jon Kyl
R-Arizona

Jeff Sessions
R-Alabama

Lindsey Graham
R-South Carolina

John Cornyn
R-Texas

Sam Brownback
R-Kansas

Tom Coburn
R-Oklahoma

If you are from one of the 18 states that one of those senators represents, you can have a bit more effect than folks from the other 32 but any pressure that can be brought to bear is better than none.

I have already written John Cornyn and Arlen Spector to ask that they oppose Holder. I also asked that they at least question him hard and do their best to force him to come out and clearly state where he stands on whether or not he personally considers the RKBA to be an individual or a collective right (what the heck is a collective right anyhow??) and how he plans to enforce existing firearm related laws. My thinking is that if they can get him to slip up and say what he really believes about RKBA that will get a lot of people off the fence and get them to writing their congress critters when the anticipated (inevitable?) assault on 2A rights begins.
