Editor,

Chuck Schumer gets a pass for threatening Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh saying “I want to tell you Kavanaugh — you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price.” Nancy Pelosi continues to sit on a bill that would increase the protection of Supreme Court justices and their families. Meanwhile, Democrats refuse to enforce the law (Title 18, 1507 of the US Code) that forbids protest outside the homes of the justices. All of this enables some deranged person, like the one just arrested outside of Kavanaugh’s home, with the expressed intent of killing Kavanaugh and taking his family hostage.

Democrat leaders know that if just one conservative justice is killed, it will allow them to control the Supreme Court. If that happens it would release a whirlwind that Democrats would never recover from.

Oh where, oh where could Rel be?

Oh where, oh where has he gone?

I need some laughs. Please entertain me, oh wise one.

Rel

The righties never cease to amaze me. So touching to be concerned some crazy person might take arms against a SCOTUS. Where is this same righteous indignation against the same crazy persons in our schools, against our children? Where is the lack of concern Senators will not even debate changes in our gun safety laws? Until you show this concern across all of our citizens, not just the privileged few, spare me.

Wilfred Fernandez Jr

Rel,

Thank you for providing me with material to use with my 16 year old grandson. Lessons in civil discourse and critical thinking are important in these days of instant communication. How about posting your rationale backing your bias and prejudice.

Ray Fowler

Hey, Wilfredo!

Looks like Rel believes those on the right side of the aisle are concerned about an unbalanced left-winger planning to assassinate a sitting SCOTUS justice but have no regard for an unbalanced young man slaughtering innocent school children.

I guess Rel missed the discussion last week when left, right and everyone in between seemed to agree that righteous indignation probably falls short of expressing the feelings of all thinking persons reacting to Uvalde (and Buffalo). However, before posting a rebuttal to his comments, I will patiently wait for Rel to respond with the rationale that supports his bias and prejudice.

Wilfred Fernandez Jr

Senor Fowler,

Good of you to join the thread. I hope Rel is willing to join us.

Ray Fowler

He did, however, it does not appear Rel addressed the bias and prejudice referenced in your request. Reading the room... I think most DJ readers... at a minimum... can embrace many of the gun policy changes described by Rel. The discussion of such changes is made more difficult when the issue is politicized.

Wilfred Fernandez Jr

Ray,

I will support any law that can pass the SCOTUS Constitutionality test. But I question the value of raising the age requirement. Why? Because I know too many law abiding families who successfully taught their children, as young as 8 in one case, how to safely use firearms; for recreation and hunting.

Rel

Wilfred, lessons in critical reading might be more appropriate. Bias? Prejudice? My statement is clear: outrage over gun attacks should be equally expressed for all citizens, not parceled out only when a SCOTUS might be in jeopardy. But, yes, mark me biased and prejudiced in wanting the age for purchasing any firearm to be raised to 21; to outlaw certain weapons made for war; require basic weapons training for most guns; to have red flag laws; make gun manufacturers liable for their products; and basic background checks be made on all gun purchases. It is time our right wing Senators DO something about gun safety legislation, not delay, obfuscate, and exercise passivity until the next mass shooting.

Wilfred Fernandez Jr

Rel,

Thanks for the laugh. But is it my poor reading? Ed accurately recounts recent events. Then he postulated possible consequences. In your rebuttal to Ed's LTE, you express opinions drawn from what? Your preconceived notions of how "righties" think? That is the definition of prejudice. By denigrating "righties" and not the "lefties" who control all branches of Federal Government, you define bias. As for your rebuttal to me, well, you are entitled to your opinions. Thankfully we are a nation of laws, not emotions.

I'm fascinated to know how you have formed your opinions of people like me, a "rightie"? We have never met. Maybe prejudice and bias?

Wilfred Fernandez Jr

Rel,

How do you know what people like me feel about gun attacks? How do you define weapons made for war? Is my semi-automatic 22 caliber rifle loaded with 10 rounds a weapon of war? When I float rivers for days or fish among bears in the wilds of Alaska, do you think I'm not going to have clips for my rifle and pre-load five rounds of slug shells with a final sixth shell of buckshot in my shotgun? Training? I'd rather see expectant parents get training on early childhood development and education. Using your logic, where do we draw the line on manufacturers of other products able to harm or cause death? Do criminals subject themselves to background checks? How do we get around HIPA laws protecting mentally ill people with basic background checks? If DNC lackeys cared as much as you, why didn't they pass laws when they controlled the entire Federal Government under Obama? "Come-on-man". If I were thinking like you, I would say "lefties" love to look good but don't care about making things better. But that would make me not a "righty" which I am, proudly.

Ray Fowler

Happy Saturday, Wilfredo

I noticed Rel suggested some gun policy changes that a lot of DJ readers... left and right... support. However, he skipped over a major causal factor that contributes to mass shootings.

Last night, Bill Maher spoke about gun violence and mass shootings. He presented the causes to his audience, and the first thing he mentioned was mental illness. So, I guess that makes him a card carrying, gun totin' Second Amendment zealot. I hope Daisy was watching...

Investing in making quality mental health programs accessible to those who need them is part of reducing gun violence. Presuming positive intent, I'm going to assume Rel just inadvertently overlooked the role mental illness plays in national tragedies like Uvalde.

Wilfred Fernandez Jr

Good morning my friend Ray,

We are back from pool time with the kids.

I will support anything that comforts people and the SCOTUS declares as Constitutional. But as I shared with Rel, I don't believe new gun laws will make a difference. I suspect Daisy will reappear when she wants to share a DNC narrative.

Wilfred Fernandez Jr

Ray,

Here are links supporting my beliefs. The first is from 2013, but I doubt things have changed much.

Rel, the lefties never cease to amaze me. Where is the righteous indignation that Chuck Schumer blocked a school safety bill? Where is the lack of concern Senators will not pass a no-brainer bill for school safety? It appears Schumer and the Dems who follow along show a lack of concern for our kids.

Dirk van Ulden

I wonder why the AG is not taking any action. Possibly because he did not make on the Supreme Court in retaliation? That would be consistent with the other Lilliputians in Biden's executive branch.
