Default Sen Toomey's response - re: Caitlin Halligan

March 8, 2013
Dear XXXXX,

Thank you for contacting me about Caitlin Halligan, a nominee for the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. I appreciate hearing from you.

I believe that the Senate's constitutional role in providing advice and consent for federal judicial appointments is important, and such nominees deserve careful and thorough consideration. I take this responsibility seriously and have supported - and will continue to support - well qualified nominees selected by the President. It is essential that the confirmation process not always be about politics, but rather about getting excellent judges to serve on the federal bench.

I also value your input and understand your views on Caitlin Halligan. After much consideration, I believe that Ms. Halligan is not qualified to serve on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Her record unfortunately reflects an ideological deviation from legal precedent and established constitutional principles. In light of the number of cases involving national security and federal regulations that are heard by the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, it is particularly important that we pay attention to a candidate's judicial temperament and commitment to serving as an arbiter of the law. For these reasons, I voted against cloture on Ms. Halligan's nomination on March 6, 2013. The cloture motion for her nomination failed by a vote of 51-41.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact me about this matter. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future if I can be of assistance.

Sincerely,



Pat Toomey
U.S. Senator, Pennsylvania

This was on Toomey's site today :Keeping Guns Out of the Hands of Criminals and Dangerously Mentally Ill

Sadly, our nation has seen a number of mass shootings in recent years. Like many Americans, Senator Toomey believes that Congress can and should take steps to address this issue. In response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, he introduced a bipartisan proposal - along with Senator Joe Manchin (D-W. Va.) - that would help prevent gun violence committed by criminals and the seriously mentally ill.

As a champion of the Second Amendment, Senator Toomey has long believed that Americans have an individual right to bear arms for self-protection, hunting and recreation. However, requiring a brief background check for commercial gun sales, to help keep firearms out of the hands of criminals and the seriously mentally ill, is a common sense way to help reduce gun violence.

Although the Senate failed to pass Senator Toomey's background check legislation, he remains committed to this bipartisan effort.
