A lot of us feel the way he feels, but the intelligent response should be, “I will defend my home, and if they come to take my guns, then I’ll be forced to make a decision.” Nothing more.
As a former bodyguard, one never, and I mean never, expresses their intentions. Warnings given, are given immediately prior to action being taken. Hypothetical threats are unprofessional and potentially dangerous.
Yep, I think he should have been taken seriously. Threats of violence are illegal. I have heard that Vets are being targeted by The big o to lose their gun rights, as Obama considers vets and retired police to be terrorists. I read a story about a man who went to the doctor, and they asked if he felt stressed, and if he felt like hurting someone. He answered “no”, and the nurse told him had he answered “yes” to any of the questions, he’d have lost his permit. Connecticut, I believe.
Vets, beware. You are first.
