“Members of Congress are legitimately concerned about their own safety now, but they should be no less worried about the effect of their inaction on the safety of all Americans….. If lawmakers want to enhance their safety, and that of their constituents, they should recognize that the true public menace is the well-dressed gun lobbyist hanging out just outside their chamber door.”—The New York Times says pretty much what I’ve been thinking about all day.
Hey Roger Ailes, you also need to tone down the false equivalencies. Has the left had heated talk, sure? But not to the levels or from people in important positions like the right. The right has had Senate candidates, congressmen, and people with very popular national radio and tv programs all strongly hinting at violence. I’m sure the left has said hateful and violent things too but you’ll find it on the fringes not in the mainstream and visible parts of the party.
