Judge Brett Kavanaugh Has Earned NRA Members’ Support

Fri, 07/13/2018 - 11:37
NRA members can feel confident throwing their enthusiastic support behind President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Kavanaugh’s record shows he’s ready to keep government power in check

Thu, 07/12/2018 - 10:52
Kavanaugh’s respect for legislators’ prerogatives does not mean he is shy about checking them when they overstep their constitutional limits.
