“A Muslim jumps up on a table and shouts ‘Allah Akbar’ before shooting innocent bystanders.  Democrats urge restraint and for us to not ‘rush to judgment.’ A heavy metal enthusiast starts shooting innocent bystanders in Tucson and Democrats immediately call for Sarah Palin’s head. Democrats have proven that they are not fit to lead Americans.”

“For those who don’t believe a few lies can alter our lives, the NRA has become rich on one lie. When I became  an NRA member 40 years ago I received warnings from the NRA monthly that the government is going to take your guns away. When Barack Obama was elected president, the NRA had been stating this for months about Obama. For the next two years you could not find a decent gun or ammo to purchase and if they were available you would be charged an excessive price. And, no, President Obama did not take our guns away, and weapons and ammo are returning to normal.”

“Yes it is my right to own a gun, any gun and as many guns as I wish to own. Killing or attempting to kill someone is not my right. The only blame to lay is on that guy who fired the gun, not the radio or TV hosts and certainly not my gun rights. Guns do not kill people, people kill people. Wake up Arizona; stop tossing the blame on gun owners’ rights.”
