The National Rifle Association is raising the likelihood that President Obama will be appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court by a Democratic president and act like a "wrecking ball" against the Second Amendment, including confiscating guns.

In a warning to NRA members and supporters, the group's president, Allan Cors, said the possibility of a Justice Barack Obama would essentially mean a lifetime of Obama policies impacting America.


Would Obama accept a Hillary nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court? I would wager that once out of office, then-former President Obama will desperately miss wielding immense power.

Further, I suspect that Obama's colossal, all-smothering ego would welcome the offer if President Hillary Clinton—or President Bernie Sanders or President Joe Biden—were to make it.

Obama's sense of hubris runs his life. He once bragged to a key staffer, "I think that I'm a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. ... I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors." Surely Obama believes he would be a better justice than anyone who ever served on the U.S. Supreme Court.

In his note, Cors recalls when Clinton spoke positively about naming Obama to the court, as some in the past have suggested would happen to her husband, Bill. Obama and Bill Clinton are lawyers, and Obama was a constitutional scholar.

The NRA has an obvious fear that Obama would be a rubberstamp to Clinton's far left goal of banning guns. Cors noted that in a private fundraiser, Clinton said, "The Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment."
