Kavanaugh Sticks to His Views on Guns

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) asked why Kavanaugh believed semiautomatic weapons could not be banned, when appellate judges across the U.S. had upheld such restrictions. “I had to follow precedent,” Kavanaugh replied. He said the late Justice Antonin Scalia said the Second Amendment did not protect weapons that are “dangerous and unusual,” and semiautomatic rifles are not unusual.
