Who Will Be The First To Pull The Trigger?

WTF!? Guns being bantered around town hall meetings?

Will America begin seeing the type of political violence that other countries endure? Intimidation, polling places being bombed, voters shot and killed. The American 2008 election had the largest voter turn out since 1964, just under 60%, ranking the US 35th in world for voting turn out. And that poor ranking is without the violence other voter endure.

We already had a non-violent fixed presidential election in 2000 involving Florida Governor John Ellis "Jeb" Bush, the former Secretary of State Katherine Harris and the Florida Supreme Court.

“They can have my gun when they can pry it from my cold dead hand” Obviously these are people who do have health insurance.

"We're just exercising our constitutional rights." This would be the right as a member of a well regulated militia protecting the security of the Free State at town hall meetings?

Or are they easily per swayed intimidators for the insurance companies? Just as the “Brown Shirts” carried out intimidation against the German populace for Hitler?

I just hope that this is not what our political system has come to, Gestapo tactics verses intelligent discourse.
