NRA Stays Silent Over Sotomayor Despite Her 2nd Amendment Views

Conservatives received some bad news yesterday:

The National Rifle Association (NRA) is staying on the sidelines in the battle over Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor, to the dismay of conservative activists who hoped that the gun-rights group would pressure conservative Democratic senators to oppose her.

As The Hill explained, the NRA has a track record of staying mum in these sort of situations. However, may hoped that things would be different this time because of Sotomayor's previous rulings and comments regarding the 2nd amendment. Her thoughts of allowing the states to usurp power over the Bill of Rights especially the 2nd amendment would seem to be something that would normally enrage the NRA, but they seem to be keeping silent for now.
