And finally, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas spoke for the first time in 10 years today. Unfortunately, what he had to say was very bad.
Today, he asked nearly a dozen questions during oral arguments in the case of Voisine v. United States, which examines whether convictions for reckless misdemeanor domestic violence assault can prevent firearm ownership. [...]
“Can you give me...this is a misdemeanor violation. It suspends a constitutional right. Can you give me another area where a misdemeanor violation suspends a constitutional right?” Thomas asked. "You're saying that recklessness is sufficient to trigger a violation -- misdemeanor violation of domestic conduct that results in a lifetime ban on possession of a gun."
He continued: "Well, let's say that a publisher is reckless about the use of children, and what could be considered indecent displace and that triggers a violation of, say, a hypothetical law against the use of children in these ads, and let's say it's a misdemeanor violation. Could you suspend that publisher's right to ever publish again?”
Thomas waited 10 years to speak out on behalf of domestic abusers who might have their guns taken away. Because abusers are just like publishers. Or something.
If he doesn't speak for another 10 years it will be too soon.
