    And the new guns would be used to shoot the demonstrators? I fail to see any connection here.

    those that are intimidating people would probably be less likely to do that if they knew those they are hassling might shoot them

    I have no problem with civil protests. I have major problems with assholes making nuisances of themselves and annoying, inconveniencing, or preventing others from engaging in lawful business.

    I am sure than no law abiding gun owner would dare to something as illegal and immoral as what you are suggesting. Why do you have such little faith in gun owners that you would imply they would shoot somebody from just being annoyed?

    They were all excited talking about this on ABC news last night. They were speculating that this may be a huge new movement that will rev up the base and get the vote out for Obama.

    Oh but it is the point. Arming people with the anticipation that they might shoot somebody that irritates them 0 or is merely impolite - is highly irresponsible, not to mention advocating criminal behavior.
