    House GOP No. 2: Someone shot at my office

    Rep. Eric Cantor, the number two Republican in the House of Representatives, said Thursday that a bullet had been shot through a window at his district office in Richmond, Virginia. He also said he had received threatening messages.

    He said he would not publicly release the messages out of concern that doing so would only incite further violence.

    He also accused Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine and Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland - a member of the Democratic House leadership - of "fanning the flames" of violence by using threats that have been made against Democratic members "as political weapons."

    "Enough is enough," Cantor said. "It has to stop."

    I'm waiting for our left wing friends to accuse Republicans of being behind this... because to your point, liberals couldn't own or shoot a gun. That would be unthinkable.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Clearly this was a conservative plant!

    Hope they find out who it was. Bullets don't solve problems ever.

    If there ever is a second civil war in this country, let's hope the first shot isn't fired by some dumbass breaking the law. This kind of thing is stupid, regardless of the political affiliation of the person committing the act.

    This is, of course, abject silliness.

    If people are going to start doing things like this, they can at least learn to aim.

    Pathetic.

    So many liberals have dissolved into weak kneed apologists for the violent extremists among their ranks.

    Their failure to condemn these initial acts of domestic terrorism will encourage and give comfort to the instigators and ensure that there will be more terrorism committed in our land.

    It's the gang that couldn't shoot straight … they got the wrong office.

    [It's a shame you couldn't offer your own blanket condemnation of violence Chappy.]

    And, maybe there's another more important observation than merely that these people appear to be utterly foolish in their misdeeds. And that is, when one attempts to victimize political opponents: the act itself reflects not on the character and politics of the target but rather that of the aggressor.

    These recent acts bring discredit and disfavor to the supporters of health care reform; whatever merits their arguments may have had, they are brushed aside by the horror and dismay people feel towards these arbitrary acts of violence.

    More important, we have entered a new era of domestic terrorism and some liberals have forgotten the central principle that under girds our
    representative democracy: everyone has the right to vote their conscience.

    Today, those memory impaired liberals are rapidly becoming the greatest terrorist threat to our Republic and our way of life.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
