IS WHY THIS PETTY tyrant hasn’t already received a .30 cal lead injection to the brain pan. Not for the sayin’, mind, but for the doin’.
I gave an analogy to my staff about my philosophy with enforcement. It was kind of like how the Romans used to conquer little villages in the Mediterranean. They’d go into little Turkish towns somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they saw, and they’d crucify them. And then, you know, that town was really easy to manage over the next few years. So you make examples out of people who are, in this case, not complying with the law. Find people who are not complying with the law, and you hit them as hard as you can and you make examples out of them. It’s a deterrent factor.

Not that I’m advocating it. I certainly don’t welcome the prospect of American political discourse descending into violence, but … DAY-um! In a pool of his own blood with a silk ribbon strewn across the corpse reading “Sic Semper Tyrannis.” Seriously. What else can you say in response to that kind of shit?
What else are you gonna do when they back you into a corner like that? That this guy is still walking around (enough to apologize for his little gaffe) is to me prima facie evidence that EVERY person taking Federal salt — military, LEO, bureaucrat, elected official and all — is foresworn of his oath to defend the Constitution. Every. Single. One.
And I don’t care if Congress DID vote the law in. This country ain’t majority rule — specifically, explicitly, and on-purpose. And it says right here, you ain’t the boss of me and you don’t get to waive my rights.
