NRA Takes On McCaskill For Vote Against Judge Gorsuch

Following a “no” vote Friday on the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court, NRA-ILA is calling out U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., for turning her back on the Second Amendment.

The Senate confirmed Gorsuch by a bipartisan vote of 54 to 45.

“Today, Sen. McCaskill played partisan politics with a qualified U.S. Supreme Court nominee who will protect Missourians' constitutional right to self-protection,” said Chris W. Cox, NRA-ILA executive director. “Instead of standing up for Missourians’ constitutional rights, Sen. McCaskill succumbed to pressure from liberal elites and voted against the confirmation of Judge Gorsuch.

“The NRA won't let Missouri voters forget that Sen. McCaskill turned her back on their freedoms by voting against a highly qualified, pro-Second Amendment Supreme Court justice.”
