The 2nd amendment extremist, comparing putting food on the table in the 1700's, using a muzzle gun as opposed to killing innocents with an automatic rifle in 2012?
Do we need assault rifles to kill deer and put food on the table?
But, then again, shouldn't we expect this type of ruthless behavior promoted by ill-conceived ideas when the Arizona Legislature, within four months of the tragedy in Tucson, decides to adopt an "official state gun?" Or how about that gun auction in Pima County after the same tragedy? The silence was overwhelming from that GOP group, but obviously condoning the behavior when your brandishing auctioning off a Glock 45.
Or how about this poor officer/father, fitted with a protective vest, yet was doomed the minute he left his patrol car. This was not just a simple tragedy of loss of innocent life...it's a preventable tragedy and an insult on justice and it's innocent protectors...our police officers.
