    Yes, I agree with retaining the option. However, my point is, that even the mere option should only be raised if government becomes oppressive on a routine basis, becomes a dictatorship, or something of that nature. Mere policy disagreements over a few % of tax rates or the proper rules for abortion is far from that dire situation and is instead the type of policy discussion any mature and civilized society would and should be having (preferably with more give and take on both sides, but welcome to the immediate gratification culture), meaning that as we are right now, even making a point such as "We have guns" without just cause to make this sort of threat does nothing to promote ones cause and also make them look like a bully or someone who will force their views on you, by direct force if necessary, instead of by the ballot box, thus becoming the thing they claim that they are defending against.
    Did it help him make his point? No, of course not.

    And thus my comment that it makes him look like an extortionist than a legitimate political figure.

    He is in terms of being a thought leader. Just like Rush Limbaugh is a political figure.

    PLENTY of liberals own guns and staunchly defend their right to do so. To think otherwise, simply because of a handful blowhard lefties, if just about as stupid as saying that the Teabaggers are in the majority of anything.

    Does anybody want to come over and try to break into THIS liberal's house thinking I am unarmed? I wish you would try. I am waiting for that day to come.
    Your comments are moronic. No right winger is THREATENING to come break into your house. The morons on the left are gleefully hoping for the prospect of a revolution and Those mobs like you saw in London? Those assholes would be the ones trying to light your world on fire. You ready to light THEM up? Keep your powder dry, hero.

    Maybe you should quit thinking of him in those terms.

    This is another liberal-leaning household with CC permits and plenty of firearms. Outlets like Fox and talk-radio have convinced many on the right that liberal voters want to take their guns away. That is poppycock. Liberals have guns too.

    I don't want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was wedding between the religious fundamentalists and political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it. ~ Billy Graham in Parade magazine February 1, 1981.
