At what point would you take up arms to defend the USA? Would it be an invasion by a foreign power? Overthrow of our government by another country,,,,,,,? To be perfectly honest, with all of the bank bail out stuff, massive foreign aid while we have hungry and homeless people on the streets of the USA, massive unemployment, free trade with communist china,,, I am surprised that we are not seeing more of these shootings.
We all have different tolerances on stuff. Whether its a leaking faucet, or a corrupt government. Sooner or later we all reach a point that we feel action must be taken. Maybe Jared Loughner reached a point that you have not?
The founding fathers ensured the second amendment protected our right to keep and bear arms; its there for a reason. But if you use that right, your going to have to pay the price. Elected officials should always keep in mind that the second amendment / right to keep and bear arms was intended as a last resort to replace a corrupt government.
If we brand people like Jared Loughner a terrorist, or a nutcase, should we re-write our history books and brand George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison,,,,, as traitors to the crown and nutcases as well?
Keep in mind, one mans traitor is another mans hero.
Do I agree with what Jared Loughner did – no.
Should the Jared be punished – yes.
Should the people and government of the USA overreact and talk about more gun laws – no.
I much prefer a ballot over a bullet, but that is just my opinion.
Jared voted with a bullet instead of a ballot, its been the American way since 1776.
