In 2008, when the Supreme Court pondered the landmark D.C. v. Heller case, deciding whether the Second Amendment gives Americans the right to keep guns at home for self-defense, then-New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo issued a legal brief that asked the court to “reaffirm” that the Second Amendment doesn’t apply to state laws. That would mean states could theoretically ban guns altogether, though most state constitutions, according to the National Rifle Association, include right-to-bear-arms clauses or at least self-defense clauses. The exceptions are New York, California, Minnesota, and Maryland.

Bennett signed on the brief and was questioned about it by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) during his Nomination Hearing on April 11.

One explanation for Bennett’s decision could be that as he was the attorney general of a state with strict gun-control laws, he had an ethical responsibility to defend them, noted legal blog The Vetting Room. “As such, one cannot necessarily attribute the positions that Bennett took as Attorney General as his own legal views.”

----In other words, his oath to uphold the Constitution means much less than his duty to uphold unconstitutional acts of government. Just the guy we need on the federal bench, eh?
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. — Samuel Adams
