On October 26, 2020, the U.S. Senate confirmed Seventh Circuit Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court, making President Donald J. Trump’s nominee only the fifth woman U.S. Supreme Court justice. What happened during her confirmation hearings?
Judge Amy Coney Barrett, President Donald Trump’s nominee to fill an open U.S. Supreme Court seat, has a profound Second Amendment record.

President Biden and his anti-gun administration have directed the ATF to define what a gun is and to issue new regulations on the manufacture and sale of privately made firearms.
