Justice Kagan and Guns

| 1 Comment
Alexis Levinson reports in the Daily Caller, "According to two witnesses, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia took fellow Justice Elena Kagan out for a lesson in skeet shooting at his shooting club in Virginia last week."

Skeet, for those who don't know, are little clay frisbees.  A machine flings them, and you shoot them on the fly with a shotgun.  Or at least you try.  When you get a solid hit, there is nothing left but dust.  My first real job was as a "trap boy" at a skeet shooting range. Coincidentally, it was not far from the one noted in the story, and not far from where Gen. Jackson stood "like a stone wall."

Is Justice Kagan really interested in taking this up as a hobby?  I doubt it.  More likely she wanted to get a taste of it to better understand the people who are into it.  That is quite commendable, IMHO.

Just as long as they're not clinging to their guns and religion....
