The father of a high school student killed in the Parkland, Fla., gun massacre approached Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh at Tuesday’s confirmation hearing in Washington, DC, his hand outstretched.

Fred Guttenberg introduced himself as the father of Jamie Guttenberg, who was a 14-year-old student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School when she was killed on Feb. 14.

Kavanaugh, who was caught off guard as he headed for a break in his testimony, turned and was led away without shaking the other man’s hand.

Shortly after the curt exchange, Guttenberg recounted the event in a tweet that within a few hours had 50,000 likes and 29,000 retweets.

While debate over Kavanaugh’s confirmation has been focused on his views on abortion and on the president’s immunity from criminal charges, the judge’s views on guns have also come under scrutiny.

A strong Second Amendment advocate, Kavanaugh has said he would overturn laws in Washington, DC, such as the ban on semi-automatic firearms. The gunman in the shooting, which killed 17 and wounded 14, used an AR-15 assault rifle.

Like many conservative groups, the National Rifle Association has given its backing to Kavanaugh.






I don't care what side of gun control you are on. Whether you are on the right, left, or right down the fucking middle, when someone holds out their hand to you, fucking shake it!  Evil or Very Mad

It's called decency, having manners, etc. This is part of whats wrong with the world today. Most people have no sense of common courtesy, nor common sense. This man recently lost his child, the least Kavanaugh could have done was shaken the man's hand. Sorry but that was just a dick move. He clearly was not a threat.  Rolling Eyes

Kavanaugh was way too polite with this asshole.

Can I just ask why the victims of the Parkland shooting have a disproportionate amount of assholes? I mean really, it's odd to me. Every other mass shooting victim is far more humble.

Outta all of the mass shooting victims you have in America, the anti-gun crowd picked possibility the worst out of the bunch, I pretty sure you can have more well educated discussion with a person who was only 6 years old when they witnessed Sandy Hook than any of these Parkland folks.

I fear that you're right.
