Senate Republicans were skeptical that Judge Katanji Brown Jackson, with her uber-liberal background, could impartially decide the country’s most important court cases as an associate justice on the Supreme Court.
And it turns out their skepticism was justified.
As the nation’s highest court, sans Brown Jackson who won’t be seated until the new term begins in the fall, considers the most important Second Amendment case in more than a decade, a video has surfaced showing her clapping in approval of New Zealand’s ban on semi-automatic long guns, which includes a “mandatory government buyback,” during a commencement speech at Harvard University.
Jackson applauded the remarks from leftist New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s commencement speech immediately after Arden championed her government “banning military-style semi-automatics and assault rifles.”

The Daily Wire adds:
Jackson’s seeming approval of New Zealand’s radical anti-gun agenda comes after the recent tragedy at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, which resulted in the deaths of 19 children.
The future far-left Supreme Court justice refused to condemn the recent Roe v. Wade leak from the Supreme Court and refused to condemn far-left activists harassing conservative justices at their homes during an interview with The Washington Post.
Here is an excerpt from that interview:
Q: What was your response when you when you saw the draft leak [of a Supreme Court opinion that would strike down Roe v. Wade]?
A: Everybody who is familiar with the court and the way in which it works was shocked by that. Such a departure from normal order.
Q: Do you think it was a good thing or a bad thing?
A: I can’t answer that.
Q: What do you think about peaceful protests outside of Supreme Court justices’ homes?
A: I don’t have any comment.
Meanwhile, Biden has resumed calling for a new ‘assault weapons’ ban in the U.S., along with substantial gun control measures including a universal federal ‘red flag’ law. These laws are opposed by many libertarians because they unconstitutionally deprive a person of their firearms upon court-ordered confiscation without affording the owner due process. The laws are supposed to be ‘safety measures’ — removing firearms from a person who is only suspected of potentially harming themselves or others. But the firearms owner does not get their day in court, sometimes until months later.
Biden also called for bans on “high-capacity magazines” and reversing a federal law that shields gun manufacturers from most libel lawsuits.
“We need to ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines,” Biden said last week. “And if we can’t ban assault weapons, then we should raise the age to purchase them from 18 to 21, strengthen the background checks.”
The Daily Wire noted: “Raising the age needed to buy firearms would not have stopped nine of the 10 worst mass shootings in U.S. history as all of the shooters, except for two, were 21-years-old or older. Of the two shooters who were under 21, one of them, the man responsible for the Sandy Hook shooting, stole the weapons that he used from his parents.”
It should also be noted that Biden’s call for stricter gun laws and enforcement of existing laws comes as his own son, Hunter Biden, allegedly broke federal law when he recently purchased a handgun. According to reports, Hunter Biden lied on his background check form, as noted by GOP operative Arthur Schwartz:
Hunter Biden lied on a Form 4473 to illegally purchase a gun, a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison & a $250K fine. His girlfriend then dumped that gun in the trash next to a school. He wasn’t even arrested. Why don’t we enforce existing laws before demanding new ones?
