Not a baseball play: some yammerhead slopped a bitta ricin on a letter to gun-grabbing NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a letter in which his gun-grabbing ways were unfavorably mentioned.
Hizzoner promptly (and to no one's surprise) announced such tactics would never, ever stop his efforts to remove or reduce one of your inalienable and Constitutionally-protected rights. He'll shove us peasants back into the mud even if it takes half his fortune to get it done!
Hey, yammerheads, stop sending the little rat poison. First, it's wrong; second, it's a crime; third, you will be caught; fourth, it's redundant and fifth, this is not how to win.
Nope, we -- normal gun-owners that is, not morons smearin' castor-bean extract on their dork-notes -- win by being right and outnumbering him. On the one side, a gazillionaire and his bought-and-paid-for servants; on the other, five million NRA members and a hundred million law-abiding gun owners. Ballot box, mail box, soap-box: we can whup 'im right there, with the great big mallet marked First Amendment.
And we'll whup 'im a lot easier if nit-wits don't go sending literal poison-pen letters to the freedom-hating elitist-in-chief and/or his higher ranking minions. Stay off my side, dammit. Don't give 'em any blood to dance in: they like it. They're good at it. Victims are their favorite props; they know how to work 'em. Why make their job easier?
