NRA’s new anti-Kagan speaks softly but delivers a big wallop – a bulls-eye character assassination – that directly links to Sonia Sotomayor, and indirectly, to what is perceived as President Obama’s agenda to disarm America.
It has a “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me” theme focusing on labeling the testimony of Sonia Sotomayor, during her confirmation hearing, as merely the art of political deception – a lie and trickery – designed to carry out Obama’s perceived plan to undermine the Second Amendment of the Constitution.

Clip of Sotomayor: Like you I understand – that – how important the right to bear arms is to many, many Americans. In fact, one of my godchildren is a member of the NRA; and I have friends who hunt. I understand the individual right fully that the Supreme Court recognized in Heller.
Soft-spoken Narrator: That was Sonya Sotomayor before she was confirmed to the Supreme Court; and now Sotomayor ruled exactly the opposite. Sotomayor joined an opinion that would have erased the Second Amendment from the Constitution. It said that nothing in the Second Amendment states that the right to bear arms is a fundamental right for all Americans.
Nothing? She said one thing, she did the opposite. Now another Supreme Court nominee from President Obama is making promises.
Clip of Senator Leahy: Is there any doubt after the court decision of Heller and McDonald that the Second Amendment of the Constitution secures a fundamental right for an individual to own a firearm and use it for self defense in their home?
Clip of Elena Kagan: There is no doubt, Senator Leahy. That is binding precedent entitled to all of the respect of – of binding precedent in – in in any case. So that is settled law.
Soft-spoken Narrator: We’ve heard that before. Call your senator Tell them not to fall for the same trick twice. Tell them to vote no on Elena Kagan.

This new NRA ad aims to the heart of fears that no less than Second Amendment rights are at risk if Elena Kagan is confirmed as Obama’s second Supreme Court Justice of the United States. The similarity of the testimonies of both Sotomayor and Kagan, each stating that the Second Amendment of the Constitution is settled law – paired with Sotomayor’s quick betrayal of her testimony – is especially condemning.
Not a shout, but almost a soft whisper, pointing to Sotomayor’s testimony, allowed the malignant power of Sotomayor’s lie to speak for itself – effectively assassinating the character of both Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. The invisible target of the ad was to furthur the perception that President Obama’s anti-gun agenda intends to disarm America citizens.
