Holder Nomination: Write Senator If You Haven't Already

    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

    Joseph R. Biden, Jr.

    Herb Kohl

    Dianne Feinstein

    Russell D. Feingold

    Charles E. Schumer
    D-New York

    Richard J. Durbin

    Benjamin L. Cardin

    Sheldon Whitehouse
    D-Rhode Island

    Arlen Specter
    Ranking Member, R-Pennsylvania

    Orrin G. Hatch

    Charles E. Grassley

    Jon Kyl

    Jeff Sessions

    Lindsey Graham
    R-South Carolina

    John Cornyn

    Sam Brownback

    Tom Coburn

    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.

    They say keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Me, I try to keep my enemies at 7 yards or better.

    I wrote them just a few weeks ago and I will write them again. They will remember where I stand :)
