The National Rifle Association is opposing Elena Kagan’s nomination to the Supreme Court and warning senators that it will take their votes into account when considering endorsing their re-election.

In a letter sent to leading senators Thursday, top NRA officials say Kagan has “repeatedly demonstrated a clear hostility” to gun rights in her career in government and academia.

The NRA also opposed Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s confirmation last year. Sotomayor was among the four dissenters in the high court’s decision last week that limits state and local gun restrictions.
