Anyone concerned about protecting communities from gun violence should strongly oppose the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Here’s why:

(A thread)
Kavanaugh’s presence on the Supreme Court could undermine decades of work to strengthen gun policy and would gravely jeopardize public safety. #NoRA
If Kavanaugh is confirmed, it could mean the Supreme Court overturning common sense gun safety laws in states across the country — including laws that limit the sale of assault weapons, laws that are designed to keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers, and more. #NoRA
Should Kavanaugh be confirmed to the Supreme Court for life, the results could devastate elected officials’ ability to strengthen gun laws for years to come. #NoRA
Judge Kavanaugh’s record of siding with the gun lobby proves he’ll put corporate interests before public safety. #NoRA
The NRA is praising Kavanaugh’s nomination because they know with him on the bench, they’ll have another ally in the court: someone who shares their views and votes in their favor—votes that will boost firearms industry, even if it means risking the safety of communities. #NoRA
Make no mistake, by nominating Kavanaugh, President Trump is making good on his promise to come through for the NRA, after they spent millions to put him in office. #NoRA
The corporate gun lobby does not belong in the Supreme Court, but they spent $1 million to confirm Justice Gorsuch. How much will they spend to secure the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh? #NoRA
Kavanaugh’s views on the Second Amendment are far outside the mainstream and stand in direct opposition to the values and priorities of the vast majority of Americans. #NoRA
Judge Kavanaugh rejects the idea that courts should consider public safety when judging gun cases and would strike down bedrock gun laws like those that restrict civilian use of the dangerous, military-style weapons regularly used in mass shootings. #NoRA
Kavanaugh believes assault weapon bans are unconstitutional, a position far outside the mainstream of other conservative judges. #NoRA
Recent polls show a majority of voters - over two thirds - want stricter gun laws. In fact, support for stronger gun laws is now the highest since 1993. #NoRA
Americans concerned keeping our kids and communities safe should call on their Senators to oppose Judge Kavanaugh. #NoRA

We need a Supreme Court justice who respects the Second Amendment but who also realizes reasonable regulations that reduce gun violence do not infringe on anyone’s constitutional rights. #NoRA
Now is the time for us to speak up & demand a nominee who’ll respect centuries of American legal tradition, recognize that gun rights have always gone hand-in-hand w/responsible regulations, and put the life and liberty of all Americans ahead of the gun lobby. #NoRA
Giffords has a tool right now that makes it easy for people to call their Senators. Please use it. #NoRA
