This feature appears in the August ’16 issue of NRA America’s 1st Freedom, one of the official journals of the National Rifle Association. “I think that for most of our history, there was a nuanced reading of the Second Amendment until the decision by the late Justice [Antonin] Scalia, and there was no argument until then that localities and states and the federal government had a right, as we do with every amendment, to impose reasonable regulations. So I believe we can have common-sense gun safety measures consistent with the Second Amendment.”

Hillary Clinton will put enough liberals on the Supreme Court to dominate the legal system for forty years and dismantle the Second Amendment, the National Rifle Association warned here at the Republican Convention Tuesday night. Chris Cox, the NRA's top lobbyist, was one of the first of several convention speakers over two days to raise the direction of the Supreme Court in the presidential election and he warned that Clinton would give the liberals immediate control if elected because she would be able to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia, gun control's biggest foe on the court.
