    The diarist is acting like he's one of Newt's mouth-breathing, low-IQ having, witless followers. Their answer to everything is, "2nd Amendment solution!"

    There are lies, damn lies, and statistics but they all pale in comparison to conservative talking points.

      It reads as threats of violence and can be taken that way. It's not a joke, not snark even if that was the intent.
      We went through this when the original "2nd Amendment solution" suggestion was put in play by the RWNJs and their dodge was that it was a joke, just funnin', Yeah, like that's funny to Gabby Giffords.
      DON'T play this.

      If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

        like the other person said, check your snarkmeter.

        but point taken. i will make my point a different way next time regarding repubs' incessant threats of violence as their next and, to them, perhaps better alternative to politics.

        i live around and work around these goons and i get sick of their gun nuttery and implicit threats... it oozes from their brainwashed pores... thus my ill advised, sometimes short tempered statements.

        my bad.

          and I have to seriously self-censor on this very vein, but I have had some stiffly worded warnings from the Powers That Be here at the GOS about anything that can be twisted or construed as a death threat.
          Not to mention HRs from fellow kossacks, one of whom, IIRC, tipped your diary! grrrummble grumble grrr.
