Raenex (947668) writes "A right-wing New Jersey blogger was convicted at his third trial of making threats against three federal judges in Illinois in retaliation for a ruling supporting gun control. The case stemmed from the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling in 2009 by three judges that upheld a district court decision dismissing lawsuits that challenged handgun bans in Chicago and Oak Park, Ill. The same day, Turner protested the decision with an inflammatory post online. In one passage, he quoted Thomas Jefferson as saying, "The tree of liberty must be replenished from time to time with the blood of tyrants and patriots," court papers said.

Authorities said he crossed the line by writing: "Let me be the first to say this plainly: These judges must die. Their blood will replenish the tree of liberty.""
