AG Nominee Sessions To Be Considered By Full Senate This Week

posted on February 6, 2017

Following a very contentious hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, President Donald Trump’s nominee for U.S. attorney general, Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., will be considered by the full Senate this week.

As we’ve reported before, Sessions is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. Among other things, he argued for passage of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act; led the charge against anti-gun Supreme Court nominees Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan; voted to prohibit gun confiscation during a declared state of emergency; and opposed bans on semi-automatic modern sporting rifles—the most popular rifles in the country.

“I do believe the Second Amendment is a personal right, it’s a historic right of the American people …” Session said during his confirmation hearing. “It’s just as much a part of the Constitution as any of the other great rights and liberties that we value.”
