Knowing nothing about Mo Brooks I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt that he was using that as an example of someone who could have their 2nd amendment rights stripped.

Now off to Google to discover that he's pure scum or something.

EDIT: God dammit.

Yeah, pretty much the only role of "nonviolence" in the modern political lexicon is for centrists and conservatives to tut-tut any violence deemed to emanate from the left.

Re: House Majority Whip Steve Scalise + 2 cops + aides (?) reportedly shot

I'm wondering if any of these Republicans blaming this on the left had anything to say when those running on Democratic tickets had to drop out of races due to death threats?

I WONDER?

Wow...It's all about them is it? While Republican's blood is still wet. While cities still haven't rebuilt or paid for Dem riots. You bring up this? After all the death threats that Repubs get. Hope all you snowflakes don't melt this summer. It's going to get hot.

MLK and Gandhi got some decent results with the non violent approach.

So is Rand Paul saying the shooting was a legitimate exercise of his political rights?

Re: House Majority Whip Steve Scalise + 2 cops + aides (?) reportedly shot

Quote:
In an interview on WBEN, the New York Republican said Democratic political opposition to President Donald Trump had "gone too far."

"I can only hope that the Democrats do tone down the rhetoric," Collins said. "The rhetoric has been outrageous: The finger-pointing, the tone, the angst and the anger directed at Donald Trump, his supporters, really then, some people react to things like that, people get angry as well, and you fuel the fires."

Collins also said he would carry a gun in public in the incident's aftermath.

Collins lamented a recent "die-in" protest at his congressional office, meant to raise awareness about the projected higher levels of uninsured people under the Republican healthcare bill.
Is it time to rethink the first amendment?

Glad he was white. Would hate to see the response from the right if he were black or Muslim.

Sad to see what the USA is turning into, half of the country hates the other half. Democrat politicians calling for violence doesn't help.

AG Loretta Lynch said "we need more 'marching, blood, death on streets".
[http://www.wnd.com/2017/03/loretta-l...h-on-streets/]

Senator Tim Kaine said "Democrats have to fight in the streets".

If you were were to list the 500 most outrageous statements about guns ever made by a current member of Congress, I doubt this statement would be on the list.

That congressperson knows what the first and fourth amendments are for. That alone gets him in at least the top 10% of the GOP congresscritter delegation.

Important to get that violence out of the way before picture and video is around to record it.

Wonder if lefty media gets blame for inspiring the shooting and right-wing media pile on.
Do copycats occur?
Which Dem is the 1st to make the 'I know how the shooter felt' mistake?

I didn't say they didn't. I'm saying that in American political discourse, nonviolence is the standard by which the left and no one else is judged.
