Brett Kavanaugh is now Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh. He was confirmed Saturday in a Senate floor vote and sworn in by Chief Justice Roberts shortly thereafter. Second Amendment attorney and scholar Steve Halbrook says tomorrow will be a great day, Kavanaugh's first day sitting on the court. It's hard to predict the future, but the likelihood that Second Amendment cases will be taken up has certainly increased. Kavanaugh spoke during his confirmation about the text, history and tradition of the Constitution, quoting the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Gun control activists will be less eager to appeal to the Supreme Court if they lose on the circuit level. Steve says right to carry, "assault weapons" bans and the level of scrutiny appropriate to these cases will likely be appealed to a court with Justice Kavanaugh. Originally aired on Cam & Co 10/08/18.
