Obama’s New AG on the Second Amendment

What a Surprise!

According to the NRA-ILA, Obama’s odds-on favorite for AG is an anti-2nd Amendment As Individual Right cosignatory with Janet Reno during the D.C. vs. Heller case. In other words, a gun grabber.

Media reports say President-elect Barack Obama has selected Eric Holder as his Attorney General, and that Holder may already have accepted the offer. Holder, as Deputy Attorney General under Janet Reno during the Clinton Administration, said that the Second Amendment does not protect an individual right, but instead protects the right to have a firearm when serving with a militia. After leaving office, Holder stuck to that assertion when he signed Janet Reno’s brief to the Supreme Court in the Heller case, which stated, “The Second Amendment does not protect firearms possession or use that is unrelated to participation in a well-regulated militia.”
