They seem to have a propensity for violence.
    The occurrence of violence in a certain group is directly propositional to how the government acts. It wouldn't surprise me if people on the right have a higher tendency to get violent when the government acts towards gun rights and I wouldn't be surprised if people on the left have a higher tendency to get violent when the government acts towards union rights.

    Loughner is a lefty.

    Which fringe at the current moment seems more likely to threaten or assassinate public officials on the count of restrictive gun laws?

    No, Bloomberg is not a terrorist. You don't get to toss terms of that severity around with such casualty. That mentality lends credence to the very actions we're discussing.

    Not at all. When discussing the fringes, logic is useless.

    sure I can. this is a free nation and I can call a turd a turd, a terrorist a terrorist. Bloomberg is both. He has conspired to violate the federal firearms laws of this nation by sending unlicensed "investigators" into other states where they violated the laws of both this nation and those states. He conspires daily against our constitutional rights.

    To some apparently. To deny the likely politics of extremists willing to assassinate public officials on the count of restrictive gun laws is absurd.
