Female VO: “Meet Merrick Garland. Obama and his liberal allies have been working hard to paint Garland as a ‘moderate’ for the Supreme Court. But there is no painting over the truth: Garland would be the tie-breaking vote for Obama’s big government liberalism. The Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms – gutted. Partial-birth abortion – legalized. Unaccountable agencies like the EPA – unleashed. How do we know? Because we have seen Garland’s record, and it is not ‘moderate.’ In two separate cases, Garland has demonstrated his ‘strong hostility to gun owner rights.’ He even sided with the federal government on keeping personal information on anyone who purchases a gun. Unaccountable agencies like the EPA? – ‘In a dozen close cases in which the court divided, he sided with the agency every time.’ According to the New York Times ‘If Judge Garland is confirmed, he could tip the ideological balance to create the most liberal Supreme Court in 50 years.’ Moderate? Nice try.”
“Despite the spin from the White House and its allies, Merrick Garland’s record reveals that he will be a reliable liberal vote on the court, imposing a liberal majority on the Supreme Court that will last for generations. The American people deserve to have a voice in this lifetime appointment but President Obama and Democrats in Washington are denying the people that voice. JCN is committed to ensuring citizens are informed about Garland’s liberal record including his view that the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms doesn’t even cover keeping a gun in your home for your own protection and his pattern of ruling in favor of bureaucrats at unaccountable federal agencies over small businesses and the American people,” said Carrie Severino, Chief Counsel for JCN and a former Supreme Court clerk.
