Robert VerBruggen of National Review Online reports that Elena Kagan, President Obama’s nominee to be on the U.S. Supreme Court may have compared the NRA to the KKK.  If true this is a shocking development in what has been a low key nominations battle.  From NROnline:

National Review has learned that in 1996, Kagan apparently tied the NRA to the KKK — yes, the KKK — while debating the Clinton administration’s position on a bill.  The bill in question was the Volunteer Protection Act, which, when it was passed and signed the following year, protected some non-profits’ volunteer workers from tort liability in certain cases. The administration worried that it would apply to volunteers from unlikable non-profits…

…Is Kagan so hostile to gun rights that she would compare the top gun-rights organization in the United States with a viciously racist hate group? It sure looks that way. We look forward to her explanation.

If true, this is further evidence that Elena Kagan has little to no respect for American’s right to “keep and bear Arms.”  Kagan needs to be asked if this is true in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing scheduled for June 28th.  Kagan has a well documented hostility to gun rights and this new allegation may be a game changer for President Obama’s nominee to be Justice on the highest court in the land.
