A former "Guns & ammo" magazine editor and GOP supporter that used the magazine to push anti-Obama rhetoric, has been charged with 2nd degree murder.

"The former editor of Guns & Ammo magazine was accused of murdering a friend with a gun and ammo in Golden Valley, Arizona on Wednesday.
Mohave County sheriff’s charged 53-year-old Richard Erick Venola with second-degree murder for the killing 39-year-old James Patrick O’Neill, who was found dead at the scene."

"After President Barack Obama took office in 2009, Venola used his position as editor to warn readers that they should join his “largest business competitor,” the National Rifle Association (NRA), or “those in the new administration who drool at the chance of neutering the Second Amendment will become emboldened"

Everybody needs to stop pointing fingers and being vindictive, because that just makes our problems worse.
Apology accepted and I apologize for many on the GOP side who do the same thing...

In the intervening time period, Pearce endorsed Ready's candidacy for city council, attended his LDS baptism and helped make him an elder in his own LDS church. So you are clearly wrong when you say that NO Republican or conservative would stomach a Nazi in their ranks.

Wow, as I read through about this guy I realize he was the target of a lot of liberal groups, probably money from the unions because he supported removing illegals, he did not want progressive versions of history in schools and it sounds like desperation to hold him accountable for the one person he knew may have been connected to bad things. Out of the thousands he knew this person Ready but he says to not know of other connections.
You would see a long pattern if there was an issue.
I saw no neo-nazi issue there.
I did see a person made into a national progressive target. That is more racist than anything else IMO.

Actually they didn't. He was involved with the AZ GOP for a long time, even ran for congress, though wasn't let go until the media found out about his neo-nazi ties, putting the heat on the GOP to do so.

It makes you wonder how deep the neo-nazi/GOP ties are in Arizona, and around the country

I guess the conclusion to be drawn here is that when a conservative goes off the deep end, he becomes a Nazi and when a liberal goes off the deep end he becomes an anarchist. Both are dangerous. One shoots people, the other one blows up buildings.

Combine it with a need to CONTROL and it sets the stage for possible violence.
