NO! NO! NO! No protection for the supremes until we have protection against ASSAULT RIFLES!! CRAZY,

ANGRY PEOPLE BUYING GUNS!!!

Those 9 justices can be replaced far more easily than our kids! It is insane and infuriating that the house and senate would even CONSIDER taking up those bills to protect the 9 adults on the supreme court before they would protect 335 MILLION citizens. Are the supremes more precious to the USA than our kids? Our people of color? Our LGBTQ friends? Our mall goers? Our grocery store shoppers? And the people who just want to go to church and find peace?

NO!!! Vote these bastards out of the house and senate for even considering such legislation BEFORE taking care of the underlying problem! I'm so friggin' sick and tired of the house and senate deciding who's valuable and who's not.

If they pass gun control, it would take care of the supremes, too.

anyone else. I say NO! I don't care if it's Biden, Pelosi, or even Elizabeth Warren or Katie Porter or Sheldon Whitehouse or Stacy Abrams!!! (heros all).

It's WRONG to protect those 9 rather than the 335 million.

not special SCOTUS protection would mean SCOTUS would be less likely to legislate from the bench by declaring it unconstitutional!

11. Note to Kevin McCarthy:

In the history of the Supreme Court, there has been one actual attempted assassination. This latest thing seems pretty lame so far as an attempted murder. 5 Federal court justices have been killed by firearms.

Every year almost 8000 children and teens are victims of firearm violence. 1800 of them die.
Almost 1000 are murdered.

Now, who is it you think needs immediate action by Congress?

18. Since a large portion of the SC justices are dominionists, can't we just let their lord protect them

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominion_theology

Just because I trust Wikipedia a lot more than most news sources and the utterances of the SCOTUS.

Dominion theology (also known as dominionism) is a group of Christian political ideologies that seek to institute a nation which is governed by Christians and based on their understandings of biblical law. Extents of rule and ways of acquiring governing authority are varied. For example, dominion theology can include theonomy, but it does not necessarily involve advocacy of adherence to the Mosaic Law as the basis of government. The label is primarily applied to groups of Christians in the United States.

Prominent adherents of these ideologies include Calvinist Christian reconstructionism, Charismatic and Pentecostal Kingdom Now theology, and the New Apostolic Reformation.[1][2] Most of the contemporary movements labeled dominion theology arose in the 1970s from religious movements asserting aspects of Christian nationalism. Roman Catholic integralism is also sometimes considered to fall under the dominionist umbrella, but the Catholic integralist movement is much older and theologically markedly different from Protestant dominionism, since it is tied to the doctrine of the Catholic Church as being the only true church.

Some[who?] have applied the term dominionist more broadly to the whole Christian right. This usage is controversial. Some members of these communities[citation needed] claim to be concerned that this is a label being used to marginalize them from public discourse.

21. Death Panels

And the Republicans tried to scare Americans by saying Dems would create "death panels" to see who lives and dies under Obamacare. Meanwhile, they decide whose lives are important and who deserves protection. Mitch M's fake outrage is sickening.

And, as one other poster stated, Repubs want teachers to be armed so they can protect themselves and their students. By that thinking, arm the justices and make them responsible for protecting themselves and all the SCOTUS staffers, clerks, etc.

40. Maybe we should ask the Republican legislators arguing to arm teachers, about arming the 9 SCJ

It is an asinine, stupid, idiotic argument in the case of the teachers, who will, under pressure, already have many things that they do to try to save their students. Not to mention, I assume the gun would logically have to be locked up and unloaded until needed. This means even if the teacher were an ex Marine sharp shooter, in the case in Uvalde, he/she would still have moved to lock the door as the first step before retrieving and loading the gun. At which point, he/she would likely have been shot just as the teacher was. This ignores all the other reasons why guns do not belong in the class room.

As to the SCJ, they could obviously opt to arm themselves. In addition, they already have some protection from federal marshals. The impetus of the bill to begin with was to prevent protestors outside their homes.
