The NRA Comes Out Against Sotomayor

The National Rifle Association has issued a statement officially declaring its opposition to Judge Sotomayor's confirmation to the Supreme Court.

The statement can be read here.

This announcement is encouraging because of its potential to impact the votes of Democratic senators from red and swing states, who are especially wary of upsetting gun rights advocates in fear of the group's ability to thwart their hopes for reelection.
