Libertarians take aim at Sotomayor’s anti-gun stance

Sub-Title: 

Nominee “can’t think” of a right of self-defense

WASHINGTON -- America’s third largest party reiterated its opposition Wednesday to the Supreme Court nomination of federal judge Sonia Sotomayor after the nominee refused to give a firm answer on whether individuals have the right of self-defense.

“Is there a constitutional right to self-defense?” Sotomayor asked when questioned by Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) whether or not the Constitution guaranteed him the right of self-defense. “ I can’t think of one. I could be wrong.”

Agrella grabs 5.2% in special election

Chris Agrella, small businessman and Libertarian nominee for Congress in California's 32nd congressional district, grabbed 5.2 percent of the vote in Tuesday's special election to fill the seat vacated by current Labor Secretary Hilda Solis. 

Agrella faced two cousins, Democrat nominee Judy Chu and Republican nominee Betty Chu, in the three-way election after none of the five candidates in a May 19 blanket primary secured a majority.

Libertarians thank Chris for running a principled and active campaign, and for representing the Libertarian Party well.

Help Libertarians win. Become a precinct leader!

Dear friend,

Have you considered becoming a Libertarian precinct leader?

I’m asking because, as a political party, we have an obligation to win elections.  Not only do our over 200 elected Libertarians need some friendly allies where they serve, there are many communities across America with no elected Libertarians.

We need to change that.

And successful organizations do it by organizing at the local level.
