Dear MSSA Friends,

The Associated Press reports that Montana's Senator Max Baucus will support Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor.
http://www.missoulian.com/articles/2009/07/31/bnews/br73.txt

This notwithstanding that MSSA, the NRA, GOA and CCRKBA all oppose confirmation of Sotomayor.

There is little doubt that Sotomayor is soft on or hostile to the Second Amendment. She deliberately dodged Senator Coburn's questions on the subject, certainly not something a nominee who respects the Second Amendment would do. A Senator from Montana who supports Sotomayor is clearly is not representing Montanans.

Max promised me that he'd turned over a new leaf on gun rights issues, and for a while it seemed as if he actually had. Apparently, Max doesn't spend enough time in Montana to understand how strongly we feel about the right to bear arms. He also doesn't understand that in Montana his word is supposed to be his bond.

For Max to support Sotomayor is a direct and serious disrespect of you, MSSA, and all Montana gun owners - it's a slap in the face.

I wrote to the staffer who handles gun issues for Baucus, Heather O'Laughlin, and asked her to inform Max that MSSA opposes the Sotomayor's confirmation. I received no response. I sent Heather another email asking her if she'd actually told Max about the MSSA opposition to Sotomayor (sometimes D.C. staffers think they run the office). Again, she didn't respond. So, I don't actually know if O'Laughlin told Baucus of MSSA's opposition. If not, Max needs to find somebody new to fill that office slot.

Nevertheless, the buck stops with Max. He's the guy who wants your vote so he can return to Washington.

I urge you to forward this email to EVERY Montana gun owner for whom you have an email address.

ALL of you, send an email to
"Heather O'Loughlin" <heather_o'loughlin@baucus.senate.gov>

Copy your email to
"Max Baucus"<max@baucus.senate.gov>

Tell O'Laughlin to Tell Max: NO SOTOMAYOR!

Keep sending to Baucus. Keep sending to your friends.

The Senate vote on Sotomayor will be next week.

Maybe Max will get a clue about how strongly we feel about our right to bear arms in Montana.

Thanks for your help!!
