I recently wrote a blog article on the right to bear arms on this blog site (see below). I forwarded a shortened version of that blog article to the Idaho Statesman news paper as an opinion piece (http://www.idahostatesman.com/readersopinion/story/808821.html. Living in Idaho, my piece was not the most popular or well received in a state that has more licensed gun dealers that it does gas stations. You can read some of the “knee jerk” responses that my opinion received on the newspaper web site.
I was just surfing a bit on the NBC news website and found an interesting new article that relates to the previous legal cases mentioned in my articles. It seems that not only do some folks have no appreciation for any kind of gun control, but now some think advocating for gun control, or in this case ruling in favor of it, is an offense that should be worthy of death. It seems that a white supremacist (whom we already know are not the most stable kind of people or the brightest) living in Maryland has called for the killing of the three federal judges who ruled in favor of the handgun ban in Chicago: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/31532924/ns/us_news-crime_and_courts/.
Not the brightest fellow to encourage readers of his blog “to ‘take up arms” against the lawmakers and that government officials should “obey the Constitution or die.'” While it is disturbing but no surprise that people with such extreme views live in our nation and that many of them dream of overthrowing the government, replacing it with one of their invention, at least, if these types intend an insurrection, we can expect plenty of advanced notice.
