This past weekend while the rest of the crew stayed home and was getting the job done turkey hunting, Garth Knight and I went up to Washington DC on a road trip dubbed by Garth as ?The last road trip before Clint is on lock-down?.  We went up to visit a friend of mine named Andy Polk who works for Congresswoman Sue Myrick.   We had a really good time and even made it to a Nationals baseball game.  Their new park is really nice and I would recommend it to you if you?re ever going that way. 

Our road trip to DC and the details of our trip are probably not important to you and also wouldn?t be a good fit for this blog.  Though, while we were there I talked with some people who are informed about politics and they offered some insight from which I think you may benefit.  I?m not big on politics and don?t hope to start some political debate on a blog entry, but rather simply hope to convey information to you.

On to the point?Recently Supreme Court Justice Stevens resigned from his position.  A Supreme Court Justice?s term is usually for a lifetime and therefore they retain a lot of power.  With the recent resignation, President Obama will make a selection for a replacement justice.   I researched on the net to find some information that pertained to Just Steven?s resignation and found this quote from Reuters.com:

Obama is expected to choose someone who will follow the same basic judicial philosophy as Stevens and is unlikely to change the court's overall ideological balance, which has been closely divided with five conservatives and four liberals.

Stevens has supported abortion and gay rights and gun restrictions and opposed the death penalty. In recent major business cases, he wrote rulings allowing lawsuits against tobacco and pharmaceutical companies.

I bring this to your attention to point out the notion of gun restrictions that President Obama is looking for in the next justice.  I don?t believe the new justice being selected will have any immediate consequences for gun owners.  Though, I do want to highlight the underlying concept of making it more difficult to own or purchase arms.  Given the right scenario or, say, another justice resigning, you never know what may happen.  Sometimes it?s good to be aware of what?s going on at the top so we?ll know how it may affect us.  For my part, I?ll be looking to buy my guns before they start making it more difficult than it should be.  Also, rest assured that the NRA will be all over anything that may come of this in the future.

Regards,

Clint
