Call for Nine
Gun lobby influenced US Senators have vowed to deny President Obama’s nominee to the Supreme Court a hearing—never mind an up or down vote. But the Constitution is clear: It’s the President’s job to nominate Supreme Court justices, and it’s the Senate’s job to consider them.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said that he can't imagine the US Senate confirming a nominee that is not endorsed by the NRA. Since when did the gun lobby get to decide?
Tell the Senate: it’s time to fulfill their constitutional responsibility, consider Chief Judge Merrick Garland and restore the Supreme Court to nine justices.
