The Left can’t stand that Donald Trump was to put conservatives on the Court. Now they’ve stooped to open threats.
And this Democrat Senator sent a violent threat directly at the Supreme Court.
Back in May of last year, a backstabbing mole in the Supreme Court released a draft opinion of the momentous Dobbs v. Jackson case.
Immediately, pro-life pregnancy centers and churches were subjected to violent threats, vandalism, and, in some cases, firebombing.
The Supreme Court Justices were forced to shelter in their homes while angry mobs protested and shouted right on their doorstep.
Nicholas Roske, a California native, even flew across the country and attempted to assassinate Justice Brett Kavanaugh before being apprehended by police.
Needless to say, the Supreme Court needs to be protected more now than ever.
But that’s the last thing the Democrats and their ilk are ever going to do.
Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT), a supporter of gun restriction, has hinted at a “popular revolt” if the Supreme Court of the United States strikes down “assault weapons” prohibitions or other favored Democrat gun legislation.
Murphy said Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press, “If the Supreme Court eventually says that states or the Congress can’t pass universal background checks or can’t take these assault weapons off the streets, I think there’s going to be a popular revolt over that policy,” Politico noted.
He added, “A court that’s already pretty illegitimate, is going to be in full crisis mode.”
The irony in all this is Democrats whining and crying about our “sacred institutions.”
They complain that Republican “insurrectionists” want to “destroy our Democracy” and shatter faith in our government.
Meanwhile, they say the Supreme Court is illegitimate because they disagree with its rulings.
Murphy’s remarks came just days after U.S. District Court Judge Robert Payne ruled that a ban on 18-20-year-olds purchasing firearms was unconstitutional.

Payne weighed the prohibition using the criteria outlined in Bruen (2022), the Supreme Court judgment that overturned New York’s legitimate cause requirement for concealed carry permits.
“The Government simply has not met its burden to support the finding that restrictions on the purchasing of firearms by 18-to-20-year-olds is part of our Nation’s history and tradition,” Payne noted.
Payne concluded, “Because the statutes and regulations in question are not consistent with our Nation’s history and tradition, they, therefore, cannot stand.”
