"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"

So? What are you implying? That GOP members in Arizona are...what? They're all guilty for what this guy did? Their party is? A birds of a feather kind of thing?

Total thread fail.

Yep. Some people are far too unstable to be trusted with firearms. People like Ted Nugent.

What's really unfortunate is that we have groups like the NRA that have totally lost their way and now actively encourage blind rage and completely baseless paranoia, instead of defending second amendment rights.

Unstable people with lots of weapons having their views reinforced by a network of other unstable people is a recipe for disaster.

Fortunately, we as Americans do not subscribe to your Bushie preemptive warfare when it comes to law abiding citizens and their natural right to own guns.

If you are referring to JT Ready, there is no dispute that he was a neo-Nazi. He was not ashamed about it and everyone knew about it years before he snapped and killed several people. He was very open about his neo-Nazi, white supremacist views. He marched in rallies with National Socialist groups wearing full uniform, passed out white supremacist literature, maintained a white supremacist website, etc. During some of this same time period, one of the leaders of the AZ GOP served as his mentor. When he ran for political office, one of his campaign promises was to name a street after some white supremacist Nazi party leader named George Rockwell.

I have no clue about the background of the Guns and Ammo magazine guy except it is clear that he was a Republican.

I wasn't referring to anyone in particular. It was a generic statement but triggered by this latest off-the-deep-end event. Ted Kazinsky (the Unabomber) was an off-the-deep-end leftie. Anders Breivik was an off-the-deep-end rightie. Both were psychotic. It happens.

There is no connection between a guy who may have gone off the rails and something he said that was perfectly resaonable at an earlier time.

the suggestion that his possible crime indites all republicans, conservatives and gun owners is pure desperation politics and prejudicial mind in action.

I have the distinct feeling that "snapping" is rather unrelated to one's political convictions...

There is no limit to the depths which the OP will sink to smear conservatives, none.

Add moderate liberals like Blue Dog Dems to your list too.

Vicious murderers and neo-nazis like Ready were actively involved and embraced by the AZ GOP, you don't see the problem with this??

Plus it's convenient to see the right wing goons posting non-stop hate filled threads and going on frothing at the mouth rampages everytime someone from OWS or the left even sneezes in the wrong direction, now that real acts off terror and murder are being committed by GOP'ers, they pull out the na-na boo-boo tears
