ATLANTA  —   Georgia’s US Senators Johnny Isakson and Saxby Chambliss say they’ll be voting against the nomination of Federal Appeals Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court next week.

In separate statements, they both cite her rulings on gun owner’s rights as a reason for their opposition.

Senator Isakson says he’s also troubled by her opinions on property rights favoring the government’s use of eminent domain to facilitate the sale or redevelopment of private property.
