It’s probably bad, but it probably could have been much much worse.

Tried to find what her position on the 2nd Amendment is, not expecting it to be much in our favor.  Did find this discussion. Seems like she dodged the question by taking the view that the 2nd Amendment was not incorporated to the states.  With the hope and increasing likeliness that we’ll see incorporation on the 2nd Amendment.  I wonder what affect this will have on her? I am concerned that she will be one of the SCOTUS justices to stand in opposition of incorporation.

But not much worse….

“She also once said, “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”” [1]
