Reader: Gun nuts who think America's trying to take down Jesus have their heads up their ass

Talk about hitting a nerve: Hundreds of people have commented so far on our post about Shooters Grill, a Rifle eatery whose waitresses are armed. The passions run high on both sides of the issue. Here's an example from someone who probably won't be dining at Shooters anytime soon.

Is this place sponsored by FOX News? Gimmick or not (many don't understand gimmicks -- they still take them seriously), all this does is feed into the increasing paranoia that we are in increasing danger of random shooters anywhere we go anymore. The fact is, more and more people are working themselves up into a lather thinking the President is going to take away our guns, the Middle East is going to come over and attack us and this nation is trying to take down Jesus. Pull your heads out of your asses, folks. Quit listening to the hype. Things happen but stop being a lemming. This is not a violent third world state. But shit like this brings us another step toward it.

Gun Loon sent to Prison for 18 years after trying to poison Obama


The Texas actress who admitted sending ricin-laced letters to President Barack Obama and then-New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was sentenced to 18 years in prison Wednesday, the U.S. attorney's office said.


Shannon Guess Richardson, 36, also was ordered to pay $367,000 in restitution.


Three envelopes containing the natural, highly toxic compound derived from castor beans were mailed from Shreveport, Louisiana, in May 2013, after records showed Richardson made online purchases of castor beans and lye, another component of ricin.


Richardson lived in New Boston, Texas, about 90 miles north of Shreveport.

In addition to Obama and Bloomberg, Richardson also mailed a poison letter to Mark Glaze, then-director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which Bloomberg founded, an FBI arrest affidavit said. The group's office is in Washington.


The letters, which contained what the FBI described as "very low concentrations" of ricin, were discovered before causing any injuries or fatalities. 


They also issued a threat: "You will have to kill me and my family before you get my guns. The right to bear arms is my constitutional God-given right. What's in this letter is nothing compared to what I've got planned for you."

Funny how Nazi Westword does not mention that Barack the Butcher has the largest arms deal of weapons of mass murder in the history of the planet under his watch, but a sign makes them require a tampon change. Mass murder Syrians, murders children and condones torture, butthurt about guns in Murkkka. Westword going full retard again. Another Murkkkan war criminal in town and WestPussies are silent. Westword Logic - As long as everyone else in the world get weapons of mass murder, but not the Murkkkan. Bloody Barry is the NRA's number one fan.

and clearly you don't know what the invocation of Godwin's Law actually means, u stupid twat; it's not meant to "silence" anything but merely to affirm the lengths ignorant corn-pone country cranks will go to compare their mere political adversaries to Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, or some other historical murderous totalitarian despot u fail, douchebag

Dusty...it is painfully obvious you don't even know what the fuck you're babbling about any more....just another armchair crank pointlessly rambling about for the sake of it. Please find me a past administration that wasn't "treasonous." Hell, the term "treason" -- like "terrorism" -- has been so bastardized and abused by ideological crackpots as to essentially lose any and all meaning. Just stock up on Cheetos and Mt Dew, wear your tin foil hat, and crawl back into your parents' basement to ride out the rapidly shifting magnetic poles. :D

Oh wah. Liberals whine about the "war on women" while telling us to tolerate the real war on women by Islam. Because bad mouthing Islam is racist. You love the first amendment but only if you agree with said speech. You say we are intolerant when the most intolerant of anything not "politically correct" is you. You live in a fantasy world where you think your socialist ideas and the heavy hand of government will make it all better. Never mind that through out history it has always been bad for the population under that heavy hand

Conservatives are America's " Radical Islam....both are conservative, both are radical, both are authoritarian, both are very wrong on almost all issues, and therefor both are damaged.

I love where the 2nd amendment said "WELL REGULATED."

MrApple

@muhutdafuga  I love where it states "...the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."  

MrApple
MrApple

@muhutdafuga @MrApple I guess you mean cars?  Guns are designed to launch a projectile down range.   And that's what they do.  How the firearm is used is up to the person behind the trigger.  Cars aren't "designed" to kill people but people die in, around, or from being hit by cars every day.  And yet strangely enough it is the driver blamed for the death or injury and not the vehicle driven.  I own several firearms from basic single shot shotguns, all types of handguns, to the most evil of evil ARs and as odds would have it no one has EVER been injured or killed from my firearms, even those that you feel are "designed to shoot up theaters".  It isn't the firearm it is the person behind the trigger that makes the firearm seem good or bad to the ignorant anti-gun crowd.  An AR in my hands leaves you shaking in ridiculous fear while the same AR in the hands of the Police may leave you feeling like you've just received a big hug of warmth and security.

@muhutdafuga @MrApple And I guess the 1st Amendment doesn't refer to speech via radio, TV, computers, iPhones, the internet, or involving anything more modern than the early 1800s?  

MrApple
MrApple

@muhutdafuga @MrApple Since the lion's share of mass killers are Leftists then you have nothing to worry about from me.  But you...

MrApple
MrApple

@muhutdafuga @MrApple And yet the Left keeps pushing Pro-Life groups off of college campuses, pushes bakeries to make cakes for people they find religiously objectionable, and refuses to have conservative women or men attend Women's studies conferences and it is the Right that supposedly hates Free Speech?

MrApple
MrApple

@muhutdafuga @MrApple I thought that you were the one who keeps pushing facts.  That's all I've done, present the facts.  

MrApple
MrApple

@muhutdafuga @MrApple Because they are stupid?  Really?  Has this discussion honestly boiled down to a "sticks and stones my break my bones but names will never hurt me" level?  How very sad. 

muhutdafuga
muhutdafuga topcommenter

@MrApple @muhutdafuga You spoke of people being driven off college campuses.  I merely explained why they were kicked off.....it's called flunking out.

Confusing feelings with facts doesn't change the fact that FACTS ARE LIBERAL.

muhutdafuga
muhutdafuga topcommenter

@MrApple @muhutdafuga It is confusing why anyone would be a conservative.

In fairness to you, you are one of the brighter conservatives that have been on this board, though you fail to live up to Liberal standards....sort of a giant among dwarfs but a dwarf among giants.

MrApple
MrApple

@muhutdafuga It's called not fitting the Liberal narrative and therefore having no place on the typical bastion of Progressive ideas, the college campus.  

MrApple
MrApple

@muhutdafuga @MrApple Why would someone be conservative?  Because eventually you must outgrow the ignorant bliss of childhood, grow up, and see the world as it really is.  

And as I see it I would have to stoop down to reach "Liberal standards" and that is something that I simply will not do.  

muhutdafuga
muhutdafuga topcommenter

@MrApple @muhutdafuga So the factual world doesn't find conservative propaganda consistent with their factual universe?  Good.

MrApple
MrApple

@muhutdafuga @MrApple When discussing Liberals I believe the word you were looking for was "fictional" not "factual".  I can see how you got confused; Liberals are always confusing the two.  

muhutdafuga
muhutdafuga topcommenter

@MrApple @muhutdafuga So you understand the conservative world is fictional.  Please don't be so easy to manipulate again.
