Obviously an older post because it has Boehner, and predates the insanity that I think goes far beyond cognitive dissonance.  The last point still gets me, how folks think that privately owning weapons helps against a government with a unimaginably large military budget and the latest in tech.

All it does, so far as I can see, is lead to the militarization of the police.  And to be fair, I think you need to see things from the police point of view: every day they go out and face the most  heavily armed populace on the planet.
