Libertarians concerned about Sotomayor

Recommended article from Small Government Times which is really kind of interesting when you take into consideration the pressure being put on the Blue Dog Democrats with Hacker's op piece I blogged about on Liberal Common Sense.

Part of the recommended read penned from the Libertarian perspective:
Libertarians announced their opposition to the Sonia Sotomayor confirmation early, after reviewing her troubling record on individual, property and gun rights. The Judiciary Committee voted 13-6 to send the nomination to the full Senate. South Carolina Republican Lindsay Graham joined the committee’s 12 Democrats.

“A judge’s record is the best indicator of what they will do on the Court, and Judge Sotomayor’s record is one of opposition to the individual right to keep and bear arms. Libertarians, and all of America’s 90 million gun owners, will remember how you voted,” said Donny Ferguson, Libertarian National Committee Communications Director. “Your vote on Judge Sotomayor may come back to haunt you one November.”
