    Arlington Man Loses Gun License Due To Blog About Tucson Shooting

    ARLINGTON (CBS) – A blog threatening members of Congress in the wake of the Tucson, Arizona shooting has prompted Arlington police to temporarily suspend the firearms license of an Arlington man.


    It was the headline “1 down and 534 to go” that caught the attention. “One” refers to Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot in the head in the rampage, while 534 refers to the other members of the U.S. House and Senate.
    The fruitcakes are still out there, and this particular fruitcake needs to be in jail for threatening the lives of Congresspersons. I am waiting for people to post in this thread about the poor man's first amendment rights being trampled.

    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.

    In his blog Corcoran writes, “It is absolutely, absolutely unacceptable to shoot indiscriminately. Target only politicians and their staff and leave regular citizens alone.”
    I really want to see if anyone is going to defend this. My bet is that nobody in his right mind will.

    Discussion?

    The thought/speech police have been officially deployed. Good thing this crisis hasn't gone to waste.

    This guy is welcome to think and say what he wants but as a person who has carried a hand gun for over forty years, with and without a license, I think that people carrying guns in public should exhibit the highest level of rational thinking and posting such comments in public is a little crazy.

    makes me feel comfortable about our gun laws.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    in most states you can carry a gun openly without a license
    in most states you can carry a gun concealed in your place of business or during some occupations without a license

    This is ridiculous in my opinion and possibly unconstitutional.
    Are we going to search everyone's home who has made similar comments on the internet? Granted, I didn't see his words in context to form an opinion as to whether or not it was something to be taken seriously.
    Is his blog out there somewhere?

    I have to wonder why does an American citizen even need a license for a constitutional right that says shall not infringe on the end of it. He should keep his firearm, he has no obligation to follow an unconstitutional law and he should keep his firearm due to the fact he has not been arrested.

    "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"

    The simple answers, I personally believe rights come with responsibilities. The First Amendment protects free speech to a certain degree, but it is not unlimited (classic example yelling fire in a theater). Likewise, gun ownership is also a right that comes with responsibilities.
