Halbrook Testifies Against Holder

Steven Halbrook, one of the leading Second Amendment attorneys, has testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee against the nomination of Eric Holder.

Continuing to reveal Holder as a staunch opponent of the Second Amendment, Halbrook concludes, “Eric Holder has taken a constricted view of Second Amendment rights. Millions of law-abiding Americans exercise the right to keep and bear arms. Mr. Holder’s opinion is that the people have no such right unless they are commanded to exercise it in a formal militia, which renders the right meaningless… Many Americans have reason to be uneasy about Mr. Holder’s nomination for Attorney General. They deserve to have a person in this role who is committed to upholding all parts of the Constitution, including the Second Amendment. Unfortunately, Mr. Holder has proven himself not to be that person.”

Halbrook is a research fellow at the Independent Institute, and author of The Founder’s Second Amendment.

UPDATE: Halbrook is actually testifying now, on C-SPAN.  (Finished around noon)

    Um… When is “now”? I’d like to watch.

  2. Sebastian says:

    Around noon. Sorry. C-SPAN should still have the archive of the hearings available.

  3. Jake says:

    Thanks. I’m looking at the archive video now, but I didn’t really want to have to watch the whole thing (almost 2 hours).

    Did you notice that only three senators showed up to hear testimony in that session? I guess all the others had matters at hand that were much more pressing than hearing testimony concerning our next AG.
