Cuomo, lawmakers against Supreme Court nominee for 2nd Amendment stance

(WSYR-TV) – Gov. Andrew Cuomo is calling on State Senators to hold a special session before President Donald Trump’s new Supreme Court nominee can be sworn in. Cuomo and members of the Congressional Black Caucus expressing concerns about Judge Brett Kavanugh’s stance on the 2nd Amendment. At the state level, the governor wants to hold a special session that would allow bills to be pushed through before Kavanugh can be confirmed — bills that would strengthen abortion rights and create new gun control measures. "If Judge Kavanaugh winds up on the Supreme Court, you can say good bye to affordable health care. You can say bye to Roe v. Wade and the woman’s right to choose," Cuomo said. "You can say good bye to any immigrant right cases that come by the Supreme Court, and you can say good bye to any sensible gun control that any states have put in place." Kavanugh’s past opinions have shown he believes it is a constitutional right to "carry even the most dangerous assault weapons." Kavanugh would replace the court’s key swing vote Justice Anthony Kennedy who is retiring.
