Proud to be a Filthy Liberal Scum

Loud, Proud and I don't care about hurting a conservative's feelings!

A Recipe For Bloodshed Courtesy Of The GOP Gun Fetish

We on the left have been wondering since the Occupy protests started what would happen if those crazed, violent peaceful protesters were to show up with legally owned guns. It didn’t seem to bother anyone when the openly hostile Teabaggers showed up threatening Second Amendment remedies and armed revolution. That seemed to be just fine. Well, now we’ll find out how the police will react when protesters show up at the Republican National Convention armed.

ThinkProgress reports:

Hoping to head off violent protesters during the Republican National Convention, Mayor Bob Buckhorn has proposed a litany of items that will be considered security threats during the week-long event.

The list runs from air pistols to water pistols and also includes items such as masks, plastic or metal pipe and string more than six inches long.

Conspicuously absent from the list of potential weapons: Firearms.

That’s because state law bans local governments from placing any restrictions on the carrying of guns in public spaces.

It’s a little known fact (at least by the manly right wing) that liberals love guns, too. I would not be one of those liberals but there are plenty of them running around. How do you suppose Fox News and the GOP will portray these protesters exercising their constitutional rights? Will they be patriots like the Tea Party or thugs, ruffians and terrorists? What happens if a couple of the inevitable counter protesters, paranoid and edgy (and also carrying) decide that they feel imminently threatened and open fire under Florida’s “shoot first” laws?

But the most important thing to watch will be the police. Right wingers and their guns went almost completely unmolested, even at a presidential rally. I find it most unlikely that will be the case when it’s liberals with the rifle slung over their shoulder.

  1. as a liberal gun owner, thank you.

  2. Today, 7 students were killed, 3 wounded (so far) by Asian gunman. This school’s main goal is to foster spiritual Christian leaders who abide by God’s intentions and to expand God’s nation through them. Wonder how the GOP will spin this in light of their fear of gun control…
