A Viewer Writes: I think this was an outstanding comment: (From 'Gingrich on shooting')

Maybe its time we take back our Country with force

That's what "they" want you to do. Then, oh boy, will they ever feel
justified for their crap and increase it. Even if force were successful,
it would only be a short-term victory. Anyone who was on the fence would be shoved into their line of thinking and be firm in their resolve to right what they would perceive as a great injustice. You can fight an idea with bullets.

Education, examples of a better way, etc. You cannot force someone to change their mind. They have to do it themselves willingly and believe it. Just look at the war on terror as an example of what I'm saying.

Those people believe in what they are doing. It doesn't matter that it's wrong, to them they are right and everyone else is wrong and an enemy. The ones who will never change their mind HAVE to be killed, there is no other way for them.

And then there is the danger of making them a martyr and then you have a recruitment tool for others to join to avenge his death.
Nothing is as simple as just shooting someone and thinking the problem is solved.

But, there should be consequences for their actions. Bold, SWIFT, and meaningful consequences. No ridiculous red lines, or any of the other Obama-era nonsense.

When our "elite leaders" do criminal crap and no real consequences occur for them, well that just emboldens their followers to do likewise. We need to first cut off the head of such discord and show those types of actions will not be tolerated and real, swift, MEANINGFUL punishment occurs to them.

No sweeping it under the rug, no political favors, no immunity, no excuses.

Only then will people open their eyes, see consequences and hopefully think for themselves and consider what would happen if they did this or did that.

There is an old saying: You with your words and I with my sword, we shall see who is victorious! When communication breaks down, war is usually the only option. I believe this will happen anyway.

Meaningless rambling. If you really want an excuse to point your barrel at another human you should enlist like I did. It ain't as fun as it seems taking a life "Zorro".

I agree 3:01 PM; leave the violence to the left wing nut jobs. They are showing their true colors and it becomes increasingly difficult for the left to defend. I can't imagine taking another life (trust me, I would if I have to)so not suggesting it or saying that is a viable plan of action. Liberal politicians are not doing enough to tone down; this is the new game plan. They are fools.

Thank you for the acknowledgment Joe(?)

I had a different response to address these gallant and oh so brave "heroes" who so desperately want to use their swords and barrels but I changed my mind and deleted it.

No one will ever win an internet argument and I have already had my fill of those kind for today.

And just to be clear, other than that his quote, "Zorro" is not responsible for these words.

Anyone can take a life. It's not always an act of bravery or duty or even necessity. We see it in the news every day where some person has killed another person, and it only seems to be getting worse.

My message seems to have been lost on some people but I am glad as least you understood. So keep up the good work and try not to go crazy with monitoring all those "less than desirable" comments you and your staff have to sift through each and every day that one member of you staff informed me of a few days ago.
