If I read or see one more word from the pantywaist brigade about the NH resident who was open-carrying a handgun and waving a sign quoting Thomas Jefferson along the route to be followed by the Presidential motorcade preceding yet another
Ladies? The President of the United States is just some guy; we stock a spare one and we have backups even to the spare.* He travels in a bulletproof vehicle. And as a general rule, even bugnuts assassins have enough mother-wit left to strike from hiding.
The Prez -- any of them! -- is no big deal. The Bill of Rights is a big deal. "President" does not trump "rights;" you've gotten your American History confused with Fuehrerprinzip. That's not how it works here, kthanx. Keep on acting like it does, and you'll make it so no matter what the laws say, ijits.
Relatedly, there are also reports of a "man with an unregistered gun" in the High School where Mr. Obama was going to speak. Ummmm, no, and not just the non-existent registry quibble: lad was carrying a pocket knife, so what. He did own a gun, which was locked in his car parked on school grounds (a likely no-no) but it was outside and he was inside, and y'know what security does for these events? They secure the building tighter'n a drum. Outside stays out, inside stays in, passage between the two involves wanding and a bag search every time. No passes for nobody nohow never (I have BTDT, I'm not just guessing). So: man here. Gun there. Walls and guards between. Unless he has psychic powers, this is not a threat.
Unless you're a self-soiling pantywaist.
* Including, to my horror, Nancy Pelosi. Jeez, people, willya pleeeeze vote?
