    Anti-gun Nominee Defeated!
    Goodwin Liu Nomination Fail in Senate

    On Thursday, the U.S. Senate rejected President Obama’s pick for a seat on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. In a procedural motion that required 60 votes, Goodwin Liu’s nomination was defeated in a near-party line vote of 52-43.

    Liu was perhaps the most radical of Obama’s judicial nominees. The UC Berkley law professor supported the notion that the language of the Constitution is sufficiently ambiguous to bend with the times.

    “It becomes pretty clear why ‘originalism’ and ‘strict construction’ don’t make a lot of sense,” Liu said in an interview promoting his book. “The Framers deliberately chose... broad words so they would be adaptable to new challenges over time.”

    In Liu’s view, the right to keep and bear arms may have been necessary in the 18th century, but no longer needed.

    For these reasons, the Senate was flooded with emails from gun owners insisting that Liu be voted down.

    While Liu’s defeat is a victory for Second Amendment supporters, it is also indicative that Obama is pursuing a course to pull the federal judiciary as far to the left as possible. GOA will continue to expose the disdain with which Obama’s nominees hold the Second Amendment.
