Good news on Alito

It seems that Alito's a shooter.
"He's a great marksman -- he can do double clays," she says, meaning he can hit two clay pigeon targets thrown simultaneously into the air before either hits the ground.
While this is of course no guaranty of his views on the 2nd Amendment, it's a big hint that he's NOT an anti-gun bigot.  Put together his judicial philosophy -- a strict constructionist -- together with a skilled shooter, and the Rybar case, and we're likely to end up at a strongly positive view of firearms.

It's possible that Alito is a gun owner in the same vein as Kerry -- that is, an elitist who treats trap shooting like a less peaceful version of golf.  But I don't think that's likely.

Hat tip to Of Arms and the Law.
