I’m back with the question again! Senator Chuck Schumer said “I want to tell you Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.” Mayor Lori Lightfoot tweeted “To my friends… The Supreme Court is coming for us next. This moment has to be a call to arms.” Well, look what happened today. A gunman was arrested and charged with attempted murder for trying to kill a Supreme Court Justice. While I don’t believe they directly incited him, their rhetoric was definitely harmful. On the day the 1/6 hearings start we should remember that all politicians use fiery language and shouldn’t necessarily be held accountable for their supporters actions.June 9, 2022 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm #2095236☕️coffee addictParticipant
The called 911 on himself
I think this was kind of a set up where they send some guy to “threaten” someone else and there is no real threat
Sort of like a “warning shot”June 9, 2022 9:45 pm at 9:45 pm #2095238🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
Im not understanding. are you saying this guy was just a set up? He bought weapons special for this purpose.June 9, 2022 11:01 pm at 11:01 pm #2095243GadolhadorahParticipant
This guy had obvious mental health issues but fortunately did not act on his impulses, unlike some of the recent shooters. His social media posts indicated he was searching for some action that would “give his life some meaning”. Doesn’t sound like too much of a hard core radical but should never have been allowed to purchase these weapons.June 9, 2022 11:09 pm at 11:09 pm #2095249bored_teen 💕Participant
Unbelievable! You will do anything to downplay violence in your party. This man had full intentions to kill Brett Kavanaugh but when he saw the armed guards he realized he wouldn’t succeed and turned himself in. If this had been a right winger trying to attack a Dem appointed justice, you guys would be yelling from the rooftops about how the right wing encourages violence. You decided that he wasn’t radical but I think that someone who hears about a Supreme Court leak and then buys a gun to kill a justice is pretty radical.June 10, 2022 8:13 am at 8:13 am #2095278☕️coffee addictParticipant
“Unbelievable! You will do anything to downplay violence in your party.“
I’m a republican I hope you comment wasn’t directed to me
I’m just basing my opinion on what I heard, maybe I don’t know all the facts but why wouldn’t he run away instead of turn himself in
It doesn’t make sense (to me)June 10, 2022 9:55 am at 9:55 am #2095296
1) Thoughts and Prayers.
2) Can’t he and his family just carry around AR-15’s ? According to the NRA , they are very effective in preventing violence.
3) Schumer said this over 2 years ago.
4) Federal investigators allege that Roske traveled to Montgomery County from California with a mission: He wanted to kill a specific Supreme Court justice, one he thought would join opinions that would ease restrictions on guns, according to the affidavit.June 10, 2022 10:23 am at 10:23 am #2095318midwesternerParticipant
The Schumer tape’s being ignored by all the left wing media as well as the justice department is one of the biggest proofs the to right wing’s philosophy that the entire system is stacked against us. How saying that it is two years old is some kind of defense absolutely boggles the mind.June 10, 2022 11:50 am at 11:50 am #2095343
President Trump retweeted a video in which a supporter says, “The only good Democrat is a dead Democrat.”
He followed this up by referring to riots in Minneapolis and saying, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.”
Trump, January 6th
“Our country has had enough. We will not take it anymore and that’s what this is all about. And to use a favorite term that all of you people really came up with: We will stop the steal.”
“Because you’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength and you have to be strong. We have come to demand that Congress do the right thing and only count the electors who have been lawfully slated, lawfully slated.”
“And we fight. We fight like hell. And if you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore.”
“And Mike Pence, I hope you’re going to stand up for the good of our Constitution and for the good of our country. And if you’re not, I’m going to be very disappointed in you. I will tell you right now. I’m not hearing good stories.”June 10, 2022 12:03 pm at 12:03 pm #2095362GadolhadorahParticipant
A nutcase on EITHER side of the political spectrum should never be able to purchase a gun. Individuals recently committed for psychiatric care and/or on medication for serious mental health issues, someone posting threats of violence on social media, individuals with prior criminal records as a juvenile etc. are NOT flagged under our current system of background checks and Republicans are totally opposed to expanding the system as a form of unconstitutional “prior restraint”. I couldn’t care whether its Proud Boys, BLM or Troglodytes for Trump, they should never be allowed to access a gun. YUes, they could still commit horrific crimes with other weapons but more difficultJune 10, 2022 4:34 pm at 4:34 pm #2095462crazy horseParticipant
I think one point democrats and the pro gun control crowd is missing, it’s very hard to tell someone you can’t buy a gun because you said something dumb on social media.
There’s no clear lines, they would constantly be getting sued and be called racist when any guy gets mad for not getting a gun.
This isn’t a clear rational logical answer to mass shootings, but rather an emotional nonsensical blame game to make republicans and gun owners look bad.
There are actually many good ideas to protect people and common sense gun laws, just not ones that Democrats are putting forward.June 11, 2022 11:28 pm at 11:28 pm #2095531ParticipantParticipant
what shyachus schumer’s line to trump’s lines?
Shumer, to paraphrase, said “on your own head be it.”
Trump said “fight.”June 12, 2022 9:44 am at 9:44 am #2095691
Trump said fight. EXACTLY.
