Judge Kavanaugh said that while semi-automatic rifles are dangerous, they are "widely possessed in the United States...and so that that seemed to fit "common use" and not being a dangerous and unusual weapon." Asked how he could reconcile his position with the recent spate of deadly school shootings, Judge Kavanaugh went on to say that violence in schools is something that he detests and that more needs to be done to make schools safer. close
