Yes...talk about taking something way too far. I am all for the right to bear arms, but this is like throwing it in someone's face. Just stupid.

I can see the media calling all health care reformist militia, gun toting nut jobs based on these twelve.

Plus it muddles the message (which tends to happen with protests). The protest was supposed to be against the current health care proopsals. Showing up for other issues makes it a general anti-Obama protest with no central message.

Did any of you see the video or a picture of the man carrying the 'military style' rifle ?

I did. He was wearing dress slacks, a white button down, thin black tie, thick 50s style glasses. My first thought was "he looks like Michael Douglas in "Falling Down". I was thinking 'this MUST be some kind of joke'. Turns out, it was. I have no idea what he and his coworker - a morning radio show host - were trying to prove, but there ya have it.

As for the 'side arm' carriers, they probably could have used a little better judgement, but I'm not gonna fall for the "wackjob rightwinger" rhetoric. In my mind, I know they had no 'ill intentions' . And after all, the only thing Arizonans know about gun control and gun laws is the 2nd ammendment. God bless 'em

There was a Tea Party in Cuyahoga Falls (suburb of Akron) yesterday. 7,000 people turned out, which I think is the largest Tea Party to date in Ohio.

The paper today had a "random" sampling of opinions from some of the attendees...it seemed to me that they cherry picked from the least informed and presented only the most inflammatory statements from the speakers, including quoting the mayor of CF as saying "There's no such thing as Global Warming" (his only quote from a long speech).

It seems to me that this was done on purpose to A) Hit liberals "hot buttons" and B) Marginalize the people attending these events.

Could it be that the media is preparing to spring-board the "gun toting right wingers" into a larger issue a little down the road? Isn't the message they are REALLY expressing "These crazy Republicans are wacky and well-armed"? I think it's clear there is a slow creep towards painting the picture of the GOP as "Other", which COULD be a first step towards attempting to disarm this country...

Just because you can bear an assault weapon at a peaceful event doesn't mean you should. If somebody did this at a Bush rally a couple years ago, they would have been arrested as a terrorist.

Oh now you're just insulting my intelligence.

As I already pointed out, the guy with the assault rifle was part of a stunt with a morning radio show host. One look at the guy and you could smell a "set up". I'm sure most conservatives would agree, better judgement could've been used by the ones with their sidearm strapped to their leg, however, they broke no law. What they did is still protected by the Constitution.

By the way, you chose "The Patriot" as your name 'cause your a fan of the NFL team from New England, right ?
