Make a note of how you felt this morning when you heard the news that a gunman had opened fire on a group of Congressmen out practicing for a baseball game.
Make a note of that feeling in the pit of your stomach that it has come to this for him.
Make a note of how sickening it is that anyone would think killing a group of representatives was the right choice.
Make a note of how you probably thought of Gabby Giffords and how much worse it could have been.
Make a note of all of those things and then remember. Remember that feeling the next time someone argues for their 2nd Amendment rights so they can take arms against the government. Remember how you felt today. Or when Gabby Giffords was shot. THAT is what taking arms against the government means.
The government is not some nebulous THING in Washington. The Government is people. Living, breathing, working, people. With families. And lives. Real people.
Make a note.
