President Donald Trump’s new pick for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, is in for a bruising confirmation battle.

Left-wing members of the Senate and their radical allies are promising to do all they can to block Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) has already taken to calling Kavanaugh names on Twitter.

However the fight could well be worth it for gun rights advocates.

In his district court rulings, Kavanaugh has said that “semi-automatic rifles are constitutionally protected.”

From Breitbart:

In 2011, D.C. Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh used a dissenting opinion to explain that semiautomatic handguns and rifles are “commonly-owned” and therefore constitutionally protected.

His dissent came in Heller v. District of Columbia (2011), which was a suit challenging firearm regulations adopted in D.C. in the aftermath of the seminal District of Columbia v. Heller (2008).

Kavanaugh wrote:

In Heller, the Supreme Court held that handguns – the vast majority of which today are semi-automatic – are constitutionally protected because they have not traditionally been banned and are in common use by law-abiding citizens. There is no meaningful or persuasive constitutional distinction between semi-automatic handguns and semiautomatic rifles. Semi-automatic rifles, like semi-automatic handguns, have not traditionally been banned and are in common use by law-abiding citizens for self-defense in the home, hunting, and other lawful uses. Moreover, semiautomatic handguns are used in connection with violent crimes far more than semi-automatic rifles are. It follows from Heller’s protection of semi-automatic handguns that semi-automatic rifles are also constitutionally protected and that D.C.’s ban on them is unconstitutional.
