Supreme Court Justice Scalia and Justice Kagan Duck Hunting In Louisiana Together ?

I thought this was an interesting article. See Kagan on faith, the high court and hunting . This part caught my eye.

....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

I will pass on the curious deadpanned remarks that one cannot be Jewish and not like firearms :)

Still I do wonder if one of these hunting trips was to Louisiana. Justice Scalia still does his yearly trip down here. Heck I think Senator Vitter helps with some of the logistics or has someone do it. Maybe he is bunkmates at the camp with them too. Kinda of a fun picture and reminds us that people can have different views and still be kind and sociable with each other.
