#1 They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither safety nor liberty. - Benjamin Franklin

#3 Thing is, when agents of a foreign power came to the US and murdered thousands of people in the span of a couple hours, we couldn't go ten minutes without hearing that Franklin quote.
But TWO nutjobs shoot 50 people over a 6 month period and the people who were Franklin devotees THEN are suddenly eager to apply White Out to the Constitution.

#8 Yokay, I'll say it, YO JAMES - YOU FIRST!?
Unless I've missed something, UTAH SHERIFFS [also read, MORMONS] BELIEVE THAT PRIVATE GUN OWNERSHIP + POSSESSION IS THE CRUCIBLE = FINAL ARBITER IN THEIR PERSONAL + COLLECTIVE SELF-DEFENSE FROM HISTORICAL, OFTEN VIOLENT + REPRESSIVE A-M-E-R-I-C-A-N ANTI-MORMONISM.
And iff these Utahns = Mormons have done their homework, they may already know that Commie-Socialists only use alternative groups to help atain political power, + THAT ONCE IN TOTAL POWER THEIR BELOVED COMMIE-SOCIALIST IDEO + COMMAND ECONOMY SAYS TO REMOVE, PURGE, OR OTHERWISE GET RID OF THEIR ALTERNATIVE ALLIES DUE TO THE THE VERY SAME OF SCARCE DOLLARS THEY USE TO JUSTIFY + EXPAND BIG GOVT + WELFARE-NANNY STATE, TOWARDS THE FUTURE POLICE-ARMY STATE.
IOW, PRO-GUN CONTROL/BAN LEFTY MINORITY GROUPS ARE ONLY BUYING THE PROVERBIAL ROPE THEIR BELOVED BIG GOVT + SOCIALISM IN FUTURE WILL USE TO HANG THEM WITH.
Sowing + watering the Seeds of their own Destruction.
