    Hmm, it seemed to be a-okay, when Bush was President. Didn't they even have a play or something going in which Bush was assassinated near the republican convention?

    No, it wasn't. Calling for specific violence against anyone is illegal.

    And that goes double for threatening the life of the POTUS. I imagine the Secret Service is all over this.

    No, it wasn't A-OK, it was clearly illegal even back then.

    I think there are enormous variables involved with violence, however, I don't think you can accurately sit there and say "If only Johnny hadn't played Call of Duty, he wouldn't have shot up that school".
    What's different today compared to fifty years ago ?

    Fifty years ago you didn't have Columbine shootings but access to firearms was a whole lot easier. No background checks, waiting periods, even a sixteen year old could purchase a box of ammunition. There were more homes with guns in the home. There were no video games and instead after school the activity was football, base ball, playing army and cowboys and Indians. You could actually get hurt playing. You can't get hurt playing the video game "Grand Theft Auto."

    When I was in grade school they had "show and tell," and it was common for a class mate to bring his father's war souvenirs from WW ll to show, the German P-08 Luger being the most popular. No body raised an eye brow and Miss Crabapple would say "Show and tell is over. Now Johnny put that pistol in your desk and don't forget to take it home after school or your father will likely give you a spanking."

    About twenty five years ago the Marine Corps discovered that new recruits were showing up and have never been in a fist fight in their lives. That todays generation don't know how to fisticuffs. That the Corps had to bring out the boxing gloves to teach maggots how to fisticuff. They know how to cold cock someone on a video game or blow up the jolly green giant but if there's a real fight over a girl they don't use their fist but resort to a gun or knife.

    Scumbags.

    Arrest them all
    What an oxymoron..."Christian militia". Throws the 4th Commandment completely out the window doesn't it? (Re: "Thou shalt not kill")

    Personal Note: I don't care who you are, what political position you take, your ideological views or how you may feel about a sitting President, communicating a threat of death to the President of the United States or even inferring such is not acceptable to me. You don't get to exercise free speech by making death threats then hide behind the 2nd Amendment as your justification.

    None of the Libbos that called for Bush's assassination were arrested, so I reckon not, but they should get arrested just for making the threat. Like him, or not, Obama is The President and we can't stand for people threatening, or making an attempt on The President's life. ANY president.
