During Tuesday’s confirmation hearings, security jumped into action as a Parkland shooting victim’s father walked up behind Brett Kavanaugh.

Video of the incident shows that Kavanaugh had risen from seat and turned to his left to walk out of the chamber when Fred Guttenberg approached from behind. Guttenberg, the father of Jaime Gutternberg–who was slain in the Feb. 14, 2018, Parkland school shooting–reached out his hand toward Kavanaugh’s and said something, at which point Kavanaugh began to turn toward him and security intervened.

Afterward, Guttenberg tweeted, “Put out my hand to introduce myself as Jaime Guttenberg’s dad. He pulled his hand back, turned his back to me and walked away. I guess he did not want to deal with the reality of gun violence.”

Chelsea Clinton was quick to jump in, tweeting to Guttenberg, “I am so very, very sorry Fred this happened.”

The attempt to paint Kavanaugh as heartless comes on the same day Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) claimed more Americans will die in mass shootings if Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court. Ironically, Mr. Guttenberg admitted that Feinstein invited him to the Kavanaugh hearings:

Feinstein confirmed as well:
