Gunman Angered Over Abortion Leaked Opinion Arrested Near Kavanaugh House, Says Wanted To Kill Him
Democrats have enouraged protests at conservative Justices homes despite the clear risk of violence.
Democrats have whipped up threats against the conservative Supreme Court Justices after the leak of Justice Alito’s draft opinion overtuning Roe v. Wade. The conservative Justices home addresses were doxxed, and activist groups have protested outside their houses with the approval of Democrat politicians and even law professors:
- Leaked Draft Supreme Court Opinion Overturns Roe v. Wade, Politico Reports
- Clarence Thomas: “We can’t be an institution that can be bullied”
- Pro-Abortion Activists Hold Crazed Protests At Justices Kavanaugh and Roberts Homes
- Pro-Abortion Activists Target Justice Alito’s Home
- ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Pro-Abortion Activists Protest Outside Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s House
- WaPo Begrudgingly Admits ‘Protests’ Outside Justices’ Homes ‘Appear To Be Illegal’
- Georgetown Law Prof Supports Mobs Protesting at Homes of SCOTUS Justices
The risk from such protests and doxxing is that someone would commit an act of violence against one of the conservative Justices, and that seems to have happened.
The Washington Post reports, Man with weapon detained near Brett Kavanaugh’s home:
A California man carrying at least one weapon near Brett M. Kavanaugh’s Maryland home has been taken into custody by police after telling officers he wanted to kill the Supreme Court justice, according to people familiar with the investigation.
The man, described as being in his mid-20s, was found to be carrying at least one weapon and burglary tools, these people said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation. Police were apparently notified that the person might pose a threat to the justice, but it was not immediately clear who provided the initial tip, these people said. The man apparently did not make it onto Kavanaugh’s property in Montgomery County but was stopped on a nearby street, these people said.
Two people familiar with the investigation said the initial evidence indicates that the man was angry about the leaked draft of an opinion by the Supreme Court signaling that the court is preparing to overturn Roe. v. Wade, the 49-year-old decision that guaranteed the constitutional right to have an abortion. He was also angry over a recent spate of mass shootings, these people said.
The FBI and DOJ have been slow to act, and the White House has been slow to condemn the protests, even though the threat of violence was real. The NY Times reports:
Gov. Larry Hogan of Maryland said in a statement on Wednesday that he had asked Attorney General Merrick B. Garland in May to increase security outside the justices’ homes.
“I call on leaders in both parties in Washington to strongly condemn these actions in no uncertain terms,” Governor Hogan, a Republican, said. “It is vital to our constitutional system that the justices be able to carry out their duties without fear of violence against them and their families.”
In light of the Kavanaugh news, first question to the White House today should be:
“Does President Biden stand by this?”
PSAKI: “And we certainly continue to encourage that outside of judges’ homes and that’s the president’s position.”

Kavanaugh has been a particular target of Democrat vitriol, including by Chuck Schumer:
Seems relevant this morning…

UPDATE – CRIMINAL COMPLAINT
Gunman Arrested Outside Home of Justice Brett Kavanaugh Charged With Attempted Murder, Found Address “On The Internet”
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
The man was only following Senator Schumer’s instructions- “You will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you.” Perhaps the proposed gun violence legislation should include a permanent gag order on Senator Schumer. His exclamations raise many red flags.
An interesting idea occurs: New York is proposing a state ‘red flag’ law, is it not? Let it pass. Then let the good Senator Schumer make one of his usual, outrageous comments while in the state. Then a do-gooder citizen could file a complaint (these are anonymous per the law, of course) to red-flag the Senator. If the police do so it’s embarrassing for the man. If the police refuse you have a potential cause for action in the media.
Oh, the fun I could have…
It’s cute you think the rules will be applies to a prominent leftist.
That’s the ultimate in foolish for a number of reasons.
First, we don’t need “bad” laws regardless of who passes them.
Second, like the Pelosi DUI and hundreds of others, only a FOOL believes that a liberal would be held to the law like a commoner or conservative would be right now. (especially in a leftist stronghold)
Remember Chuck You condones this You can listen to his own rant.
Trump explicitly called for peaceful protests at a public building and they impeached him for it. They will not accept any blame for Chucky or anyone on their side.
“The man, described as being in his mid-20s..”
I don’t suppose he has a name. Even if he did, it would be top secret and no reporter would dare to leak it.
They finally released his name after scrubbing his social media on the internet.
This is what communists do. If you won’t give them everything they want, they kill you. Ask the hundreds of millions of innocent people they murdered in the last century.
This is certainly rich considiering the sinigicant number of murders committed by pro life zealots. (8 murders, 17 attempted murders, 42 bombings, and 186 arsons)
More equivocation from a supporter of infanticide. Yawn.
I’m not sure if the better question is how did you graduate from law school or get in.
8 murders versus 60+ million
“Its” statistics are highly questionable, to say the least.
Sounds like an average quiet weekend in any democrat-run city. And nobody cares, especially you.
“He was also angry over a recent spate of mass shootings”, says the Washington Post.
Sounds like the shooter at the grocery store in NY. He was upset over all the immigrants coming here so he went to the grocery store and killed some old ladies.
He’ll probably get a $1 bail and a notice to appear
Yep…It’s D.C…. as in Democrat Controlled.
I’m beginning to think these Dems really do want an all out culture war. No wonder they want gun control.
Roberts is a fucking coward. He’s intentionally drawn this out hoping that he can get one of the conservatives to cave and not strike down Roe.
The conservative justices need to immediately release their opinion and publicly call out his cowardice.
Well, I guess we now know if you make it harder for progressives to kill babies, they will turn their bloodlust towards other targets. Republicans, asians, cops, and other groups. Thank God this freak decided to go after a target with protection.
Thank god he is another in a long line of incompetent leftist would be killers.
Multiple choice (pick any/all that apply):
( ) Time served
( ) Probation
( ) Plea bargain (misdemeanor)
( ) No bail required
He needs to be punished and the Schumer the better.
Is inciting a crime a crime itself and did Schumer do that with his statement?
Yes, it is, and no, he didn’t.
Downvoting reality won’t change it. Morons.
chucky is too stupid to realize that if they can find an sc justice chucky’s own worthless ass can be found just as easily
Schumer’s address is not at all a secret. He lives at 9 Prospect Park West, on the corner of President St, and over the years there have been many protests outside his home. It’s perfectly legal, and he never expected that they wouldn’t happen. So I guess he’s not impressed by people who are shocked that there are protests outside justices’ homes.
when you miss, you miss by a mile
Explain, please. Do you dispute anything I wrote? If so, on what grounds?
Don’t interrupt MENSA Man, the answer to the question nobody asked.
I contribute valid and useful information, that people have asked for. What do you contribute, exactly? Here or in the real world? Have you ever helped anyone in any way? I doubt it.
Schumer is an elected politician, Kavanaugh is not. Schumer is supposed to be influenced by politics, Kavanaugh has life tenure because he is not supposed to be influenced by politics. It is a federal crime to attempt to intimidate a judge by protesting outside of their home, not the same for Senators.
How does that justify texansamurai’s inane comment that “chucky is too stupid to realize that if they can find an sc justice chucky’s own worthless ass can be found just as easily”? They don’t need to “find” him, he’s in the book. And he regularly has protests outside his window. So what exactly is texan threatening him with? And why should he be concerned if justices are subjected to the same thing?
