If you can't beat 'em, kill 'em

The "right to bear arms" has become the right for madmen to buy guns and use them on innocent people.

Last Friday, New York Times columnist Charles Blow warned of the escalating rhetoric of right-wingers like Chuck Norris, Michele Bachmann, Glenn Beck, and others: "They're apocalyptic. They feel isolated, angry, betrayed and besieged. And some of their 'leaders' seem to be trying to mold them into militias." In fact, the FBI says there were 1.2 million more requests for background checks of potential gun buyers from November to February than there were in the same four months of last year.

On Saturday, in Pittsburgh, a man who said he was afraid of "the Obama gun ban that's on the way" and "didn't like our rights being infringed upon" shot and killed three police officers who were responding to a domestic disturbance call.

Never mind that Obama has never even threatened to ban guns and is, in fact, working to restore most of the rights Bush stole from us...but it's useless to try talking sense to people with red in their eyes...
