Nonviolent felons, Durbin. Read her opinion.
Listen to this article
Hey, Sen. Dick Durbin. When you try to mansplain a judge’s opinion to said judge, maybe you should read it.
Durbin could not believe Barrett thinks felons should own guns! Except, you know, she didn’t.

Barrett dissented in Kanter v. Barr. It is true she wrote “that the federal government and the state of Wisconsin had failed to show that their categorical bans could be applied against all nonviolent felons or that there was anything in Kanter’s history or characteristics that indicated that he was likely to misuse firearms.”
Did you read what I read? NONVIOLENT thugs. Her dissent did not apply to the “thugs” Durbin kept talking about.
Durbin represents Illinois. How shocking that an Illinois politician is looking elsewhere to blame for the gun violence in Chicago.DONATE
