Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, chair of the judiciary committee, is co-sponsoring the bill, Menendez said.

The bill would make it illegal for online aggregators to sell or make public personal information about judges and their families, including home addresses, social security numbers and school and employment information. It also would give federal marshals more resources to assess and track threats against judges.

"We may not be able to eliminate hatred from someone's heart, but what we can do is make sure that men and women who serve on the federal bench don’t make such easy targets,” Menendez said.

Salas, in a video posted on YouTube two weeks after the shooting, called it “unacceptable” that personal information is so easily accessible.

Menendez said he believed the legislation wouldn't infringe on free speech rights.

"You can still write anything you want about a judge’s decision," he said. “You can still say anything you want about their rulings, but you need not have their personal identifying information for you to preserve your First Amendment right to do so.”
