You are one clueless POS. TEA folks focus is not Second Amendment. Got any more red herring.

This was just some crazy, two-bit *actress* who likes her guns. Little did she imagine that the result of her stupidity would be losing that right for her felony conviction. There's plenty of stupidity on both sides without ascribing the crime to an entire group, your comment being a case in point.

Ascribing an individual's actions to entire groups is standard procedure on Topix. That's one reason why there is so little meaningful interchange.

A rare--and by rare, so much as near non-existent--instance where we find some agreement.

How about this? I'll stop if you stop. We'll set the example and others will surely follow.

I'm afraid the others will not follow. They tend to use sweeping generalities as a substitute for rational thought.

I can't stand Obama - I think he is destroying the country. That being said he IS the president and he is my president whether I like it or not. Any attempt to physically harm the president is an attack on the nation. This woman should get life - disagree with him all you want but anyone who makes any attempt on the life of a president whether it be sitting or former should pay a high price.
