An armed man with the intent to kill Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was arrested outside the Justice's home.
The 26-year old man was carrying a firearm, according to Fox News. He also had burglary tools, sources told The Washington Post.
He was in possession of pepper spray, zip ties, a hammer, a crowbar, duct tape, and a tactical knife in addition to a Glock 17 pistol with two magazines and ammunition.
Sources for the Post claimed the man was angered over a leaked draft of a February Supreme Court opinion that could possibly signal the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

Luckily, federal agents were able to raid the home of the would-be assassin and put a stop to the plot.
He was charged with “Attempts to kidnap or murder, or threatens to assault, kidnap or murder a United States Judge, to wit: a current Justice of the United States Supreme Court.” If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison.
Do you think this will keep happening?!
