Senate Set to Vote on Another Anti-gun Judge

(AMMOLAND)   Here we go again.

First, there was Sonia Sotomayor. Then there was David Hamilton.

Now, we have another radical, anti-gun judge that has been nominated for the federal judiciary. His name is Louis Butler, and he is so radical, he was twice rejected by the people of Wisconsin (which is, by the way, one of the most liberal states in our union).

When Louis Butler first ran for the Wisconsin Supreme Court — the voters rejected him by a 2-1 margin. When he was appointed to that court by Democrat Governor Jim Doyle and then stood for retention by the voters, they again rejected him. This was the first time a member of the Wisconsin Supreme Court was rejected by the voters in more than 40 years.

More importantly, Louis Butler opposes the rights of gun owners. The right to bear arms in the Wisconsin Constitution expressly notes that this right is for personal security and “any other lawful purpose.” But in State v. Fischer, Judge Butler was the deciding vote in 2006 to hold that a Wisconsin statute barring carrying a concealed weapon for any purpose, at any time, including in a vehicle, does not violate this right to personal security that the voters of Wisconsin chose to expressly protect in their state constitution.

So he ignored the state constitution in order to impose his anti-gun views on the people of Wisconsin.

After the landmark U.S. Supreme Court Heller case upholding Second Amendment gun rights in 2008, Louis Butler spoke at an Obama for President fundraiser and specifically mentioned “gun control” as an issue that potential Obama appointees would impact.

“Gun control,” Butler said, “may ultimately be decided, and the new appointees can tip the very balance of the court. [The] background, personal beliefs and policy decisions of the justices selected will influence how they will vote on the difficult cases before them.”

There you have it. He is a radical activist who wants to move the courts — and our country — in a new direction. We’ve already had enough “hope and change” for a lifetime. We don’t need another federal judge who will use his radical “personal beliefs” to reshape our society.

ACTION: Please contact your U.S. Senators and urge them to OPPOSE the nomination of Judge Louis Butler as U.S. District Judge for the Western District of Wisconsin. Butler was approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, and could now be voted on by the full Senate at any time.

You can use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center below to send your senators the pre-written e-mail message.

—– Pre-written letter —–

Dear Senator:

Please OPPOSE the nomination of Louis Butler as U.S. District Judge for the Western District of Wisconsin.

When Louis Butler first ran for the Wisconsin Supreme Court — the voters rejected him by a 2-1 margin. When he was appointed to that court by Democrat Governor Jim Doyle and then stood for retention by the voters, they again rejected him. This was the first time a member of the Wisconsin Supreme Court was rejected by the voters in more than 40 years.

More importantly, Louis Butler opposes the rights of gun owners. In State v. Fischer, Judge Butler expressly ignored the right to bear arms provision in the Wisconsin Constitution. And after the landmark U.S. Supreme Court Heller case upholding Second Amendment gun rights in 2008, Louis Butler spoke at an Obama for President fundraiser and specifically mentioned “gun control” as an issue that potential Obama appointees would impact.

“Gun control,” Butler said, “may ultimately be decided, and the new appointees can tip the very balance of the court. [The] background, personal beliefs and policy decisions of the justices selected will influence how they will vote on the difficult cases before them.”

Again, I urge you to OPPOSE this nomination. Gun Owners of America will be scoring this nomination and will let me know how you vote on this radical judge.

Sincerely,

Gun Owners of America

  • Our founding fathers specified the 2nd Amendment for damn good reasons!

    Firearms are a necessary check-and-balance against tyrannical & fascist government!

    Do you think there may have been a reason why Hitler kept the German populace disarmed??? (That was merely 70 years ago, so don’t tell me it was like ancient Greek history or something!)

    Do you think in Orwell’s all-to-prophetic novel 1984, Winston Smith, the Outer Party, & the Proles were unarmed for a reason???

  • Guess who appointed him to federal court?

    http://judgepedia.org/index.php/Louis_Butler

    2004
    In 2004, Butler became the first Wisconsin Supreme Court justice to be appointed by a Democratic Governor. Under the Wisconsin Constitution, the appointment did not require legislative approval.
    At the time of the appointment, Governor Jim Doyle said: “I have known Judge Butler for many years. He is exceptionally qualified and highly intelligent. He is known for his fairness, his sense of justice, and his lifelong commitment to public service.”
    Butler was appointed to take Justice Diane Sykes’s vacated seat, as she had been appointed by President George W. Bush to serve as a federal judge to the United States Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. He was sworn in on August 25, 2004.

    now you gun loving Right-wingers (I’m a gun-toting liberal) name me ONE Democratic president that moved to BAN handguns/shotgun/rifles? No legislation, no I’m worried about…no nothing. Name me ONE Democratic president who took away guns from the people? I’ll name you pro-gun conservative who did, and that was George W. Bush. Now you may say: He was no conservative and guess what, Obama is no liberal. So if Obama is going to appoint an anti-gun judge, who put him in the candidacy in the first place?

    THE GUN LOVING GEORGE W. BUSH!
