You should really look at the comments of those that support her. Many of them feel he should be arrested for espousing his beliefs that concealed carry can be a good thing. Some have even said that They "believe in free speech, except when it comes to guns." That would be restricting free speech. I guess it's ok... that whole boiling the live frog thing. We get more used to little restrictions. Further and further along. But hey that's ok. I mean first we get the USA PATRIOT ACT, which gave the government more power than it should have(Yes, I'm quite aware that Republicans supported it, doesn't mean I'm going to). Now the Democrats intend to restrict the second. You watch it will eventually lead to free speech being limited free speech. Those first two ammendments apparently don't mean much.. guess we can just throw them out... right?
