Giuliani Makes Pro-Gun Statement

The Giuliani campaign issued a short statement today about the gun case which was accepted by the Supreme Court this morning. In its entirety:

Rudy Giuliani made the following statement today regarding the Supreme Court’s decision to review the Court of Appeals ruling in Parker v. District of Columbia:”I strongly believe that Judge Silberman’s decision deserves to be upheld by the Supreme Court. The Parker decision is an excellent example of a judge looking to find the meaning of the words in the Constitution, not what he would like them to mean.”

Sounds good to me.

More, less flippantly: This statement calls into question Giuliani’s prior support for gun control, generally. I don’t think we can take it as an example of a position change (or a dreaded flip-flop). What I think it does is show his respect for conservative jurisprudence and intent to see the judiciary take a right-ward shift.

I think it means we can take him seriously when he says he’ll appoint judges like Roberts and Alito.
