    .... at what point are you people going to seriously consider real threats? Good Lord.

    It looks like he is pleading with potential murderers to not shoot bystanders, not a threat to politicians themselves.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    If only he only said that portion though right?

    He also said 1 down, 534 more to go. Who knows what that means

    More crazy ****. They may as well put duct tape over our mouths. That would be quicker than repealing the first amendment.

    That makes as much sense as thinking he did anything other than make an insensitive comment about the shooting in Tuscon.
    The guy was already being boycotted because of it. That should have been good enough and a lesson to him.

    And here is the problem. Along with rights come responsibilities. Of course, there are some who have the right to scream without consequences. They are babies of course. They scream if they want their diaper changed. They scream if they are hungry. They scream if the can't have access to their favorite toy. And that's OK. After all, we are talking about a baby here. As a child grows into a man or woman, the paradigm changes, as responsibility is taught. And grownups just don't claim a first amendment right to advocate murder of government officials. As far as the Second Amendment goes, this Bozo just forfeited his right to it. Again, this is about responsibility. Should criminals be allowed to have guns? Important question, since what this man advocated on his blog is definitely criminal.



    I really want to see if anyone is going to defend this. My bet is that nobody in his right mind will.
    Discussion?

    Article is here.
    Like I've always said, you are no conservative. Furthermore you've already insulted anyone who might disagree with you, and then ask for discussion.

    makes me feel comfortable about our gun laws.
    I seriously doubt that you needed this to change your opinion of our gun laws.


    I'm a conservative, who owns guns, and I'm sorry, I just can't get behind this mans 1st amendment rights. His statement of 1 down, and 534 to go, could and should very well be considered threatening, even more so with the AZ. Shootings just a couple weeks ago, and his reference to them.

    It should be noted that he has not been charged with a crime, and his guns have been removed temporarily, along with his license to have them.

    I would hope that law enforcement does a exhaustive back ground check on this guy, and also have him submit to a physiological test if he wants his license and weapons back .

    The argument that his rights are being infringed upon, is somewhat questionable, since the only thing that has happened to him is to have his license and weapons removed, until it can be determined if he is just being a jack-ass with a big mouth and a small brain, or if there was any substance behind what he said. To my way of thinking, that is sound and reasonable law enforcement.

    "God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. We have had 13. states independent 11. years. There has been one rebellion. That comes to one rebellion in a century & a half for each state. What country before ever existed a century & a half without a rebellion? & what country can preserve it's liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. It is it's natural manure." -- Thomas Jefferson, Paris, November 13, 1787
    Any questions from the peanut gallery who hate the Constitution?

    I
    , (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.
    Who here was/is in the military? Have you forgotten you oath? Did you promise end when you left the military? Every public servant takes an oath like this.
