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.
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.

"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
I thought the title was bret "the hitman" heart saying we have the guns. I'm disappointed it was this nobody.
I wonder what the correlation is between conservatives in this thread acting like Breitbart's statement is no big deal and conservatives in the threads about the union dude saying "take the sons of bitches out" whining about violent liberal rhetoric.
One of you will end up here next!
