Gun Bullies at Play

with one comment

Gun worshipers blather on about needing fire arms for self defense. The truth is that they need guns because they can’t win a rational argument. Guns are offensive weapons, not defensive. They are used for domination, control and destruction.

Found this at Hullabaloo:

Digby:

I’m fairly sure that my right to free speech is threatened when someone who disagrees with me shows up with a gun. This is just common sense. There is no reason these guys had to bring guns to the rally. They could have showed up with signs, as people have done forever. They could have shouted down the speakers, they could have engaged the protesters one on one. This is how we normally stage our political disagreements. But no, they show up at rallies with loaded guns and ostentatiously display them. There is no other reason to do it this way except that you want to intimidate those on the other side.

without comments

Woody would approve, but not much radio airplay I’m guessing.
