    I read that this morning and started to post about it. Decided it pissed me off so much I couldn't do so intelligently.

    I'm cool...I mainly watch Dora the Explorer (multiculturalism), Elmo (acceptance of various ethnic and cultural backgrounds "monster"), and listen to VeggieTales music. The music is my biggest concern as Veggie Tales is a notorious Christian based cartoon which could label me as non-accepting of others religious, or lack thereof, belief systems.

    Guess I would fail the test. I have the Gadsden Flag ,or to the uneducated on the true history of the flag.... Tea Party "Don't Tread On Me". I have the First National Flying as well. So I guess I would fail miserably. Since I'm a firm believer in my heritage and history of this Nation...... Ohwell!
    It really erks me that the news reported this guy had the Confederate Flag in his Apartment.. The idiot media cant take a moment to read book and understand it's true meaning Battle Flag.. So now they are going to profile people whether you can buy a firearm.

    A couple of quotes:

    No argument there that the average pot smoker or person with mental illness is very likely to be less dangerous than Page........

    But then there's this jewel...........

    Nice.........So talking about the tyranny of our current FedGov and the hypocrisy of our politicians puts you in the same category as a white supremacist mass murderer apparently...........

    Thomas Jefferson said "The tree of Liberty..."

    I really admired Jefferson. Read a lot about him. Glad we finally found out he was a right-wing lunatic before this Liberty thing got out of hand.

    Yep. Quoting Jefferson is now verboten.

    Google "A Modest Proposal". The Jefferson quote being called "dangerous" should have been a giveaway.

    I read this piece as complete satire, as well. The Jefferson quote convinced me. No way was the author serious.

    "The Brady Campaign correctly says "it is time we acknowledged" that the Second Amendment "guarantees the right to keep and bear arms." But the Supreme Court has said that right is subject to reasonable regulations aimed at protecting public safety."

    Not the first time the SCOTUS has erred in their interpretation of law. Amendment II is pretty unambiguous and it is my opinion that for some folks, it's not so much an inability to comprehend the right, rather, a flat refusal to accept it.

    I believe the right enumerated in Amendment II should be subject to one and only one regulation; all others fly in the face of liberty.

    Hope, indeed. I'm not convinced the author isn't being sincere. By leaving the Jefferson quote unattributed, it suggests he may be trying to satire the whole "dangerous ideas" argument being made on the left. I'm not so sure though...there are a lot of "Pro-2A" types out there that are only "Pro" when it's popular.

    Re-read these first three paragraphs:

    Sounds like something straight from The Onion.

    Did not make it obvious enough it was satire.
