Only a matter of time

You've all of course heard about the gun totin' protester outside of Obama's town hall yesterday with the Jefferson quote on his sign. But I just heard about another guy who was arrested inside the building. This does not bode well.
Police said a man arrested at the scene of President Barack Obama's visit to the city Tuesday was found to be in possession of an unlicensed loaded gun.

Richard Terry Young, 62, of 821 Ocean Blvd. in Hampton, was arrested around 9:40 a.m., hours before Obama's arrival, and charged with the misdemeanor crimes of criminal trespass and carrying a loaded pistol without a license.

Young was found inside Portsmouth High School, where Obama later in the day held his town hall-style forum. Young was detained by the Secret Service and subsequently arrested by Portsmouth Lt. Corey MacDonald. Young was carrying a pocket knife, police said. A subsequent search of his vehicle, parked on school property, revealed a loaded hand gun, police said.
I find it hard to believe that carrying a loaded, unlicensed firearm is only a misdemeanor, but that aside, it doesn't take much imagination to see where that could have gone.

Obama gets 30 death threats a day. The militia types are in nearly unanimous agreement that the revolution has begun. We can hope that the Secret Service is able to protect Obama, but I think it will be a miracle if some innocent bystander doesn't gunned down before this is all over. And if that happens, their blood will be on the GOP, their astroturfers, and media idiots like Beck/Limbaugh's hands. And also those in the media who don't push the crazy, but don't push back against it either.

I almost hope one of these wingnuts does take a shot at him and misses. Maybe then the G. would finally crack down on all these seditious bastards.

I've gotten an uptick recently in people Googling "military coup." Hope it's not from senior military.

They may have heard that soylent green is white people.

It IS seditious. They accused the left of that during the war protests but that's their gig. Wrongly accusing the opposition of what they do themselves.
