    You think Sean Hannity had anything to do with this? Unreal.

    These were 2 anti-government neo-Nazi nuts. Stop using the deaths of innocent people to go after Sean Hannity.
    Hannity championed the anti-government militias at Bundy ranch and the Millers were at Bundy Ranch. FoxNews, especially Hannity, giving the gun toting extremists a platform and egging them on makes FoxNews part of the story. So it should be kind of interesting to see what Hannity has to say about this.....or if he remains noticeably silent.

    I posted that to beefheart, not you. I'm sure he's perfectly capable of answering himself. I have no interest in your comments on gun owners.

    You're trying to blame being armed for someone's murder. The guy made a bad call, he didn't realize what he was dealing with. He should have kept distance and observed with cover and a line of fire.
    When anyone 'fires off a round in a store', or has a weapon in hand, verbal confrontation is not a valid option.

    Sounds as if these 2 morons were some skinhead derivative.

    Haha, true. They've made clear it's not time for negotiations.

    I thought you had me on ignore.

    But Moot nailed it. The talk radio crowd and Hannity in particular gave the loonies at Bundy ranch a voice. It doesn't take much to push these nutsacks over the edge. When you have these militia wannabe's out at the ranch aiming their rifles at federal agents, and guys like Hannity cheering them on, what the hell do you expect? The most crazy of the crazies will go and do violence like this. Shame on all the politicians and TV and radio hosts that pandered to the nuts supporting that anti government thief Cliven Bundy.

    The shooters placed a TEA party flag on a dead officer and spent time at Bundy Ranch

    As I remember, there's always diaries, videos, scribbles in notebooks and other stuff going on long before the shooter goes active.
    which is why they get caught more often than the spontaneous shooters. What you'll find difficult is to find a spontaneous bomber or water poisoning artist.

    The third victim was the first armed person the couple encountered with an opportunity to make a difference. We should all be thankful that man had the courage to draw his gun on a murderer.

    Also, according to the reports, the Millers went to the Bundy Ranch because they hoped to be able to kill Police there. Their cop killing fantasy predated the Bundy standoff and had nothing to do with support for Bundy in his land dispute. That is like blaming Code Pink for the anarchists that show up to a protest and burn cars.
    ok... lets play the scenario game then.

    You are in a walmart. You and 20 other people in the store are packing. You hear shots in the walmart down several aisles away. you and at least the 20 others pull their guns out... 20 people plus the bad guy has guns pulled and aimed. You see a guy with a gun and he sees you with your gun. Naturally, out of fear you both turn towards each other. What do you do?

    This is the scenario that the NRA dumbass Wayne LaPierre says is ideal. More guns in every shooting episode will fix the problem. 20 good guys with a gun. One bad guy with a gun. He says this every ****ing time a mass shooting happens. Now you are in the ideal NRA guns everywhere scenario... what do you do?

    What recent shooter was spontaneous? The ones I remember had all kinds of plans for a long time before acting.
