Justice Kagan: “…it’s kind of fun.”
Hunting and shooting, that is.
From the CNN.com article “Kagan talks about her faith, the court and her hunting trips“:
Her colleagues too, she said, have been enormously supportive, and have even opened new worlds for her.
She recalled paying a courtesy call on Sen. Benjamin Cardin, D-Maryland, who is a member of Beth Tfiloh, shortly after her nomination to the court by President Barack Obama in May 2010. Cardin asked her about gun rights, and remarked she may not realize how important the issue is to some Americans.
She admitted never having owned or fired a gun before. “But I told Sen. Cardin if I was fortunate enough to be confirmed, I would go hunting with Justice Scalia.”
And she has, joining her conservative colleague on an excursion to a Washington-area shooting range and on several hunting trips, until now never reported. Her host at the synagogue event was surprised.
“You’re Jewish,” deadpanned Rabbi Mitchell Wohlberg.
“Yeah, but it turns out, it’s kind of fun,” said Kagan, laughing.
