Thanks to Cliff Schecter and the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence for this video from the “open carry”/anti-government event at Fort Hunt earlier today. Note the interview at the end where “featured speaker” Mike “Break their windows” Vanderboegh says there could be “more Ruby Ridges” and “more Wacos.” What I really want to know is, in what conceivable way have people like Mr. Vanderboegh been “pushed farther back” by the government? Was it the increased gun rights or the lower taxes that were the final straw for these guys? Hmmmm.
UPDATE: Also, check this ad, an “open letter to Senators Webb & Warner from families of Virginia Tech victims & survivors.”
UPDATE #2: The Washington Post reports, Mark Warner is “noncommittal” on closing the “gun show loophole,” while Jim Webb “came out firmly behind requiring background checks of all purchases at gun shows” (according to Lori Haas, whose daughter was wounded in the Virginia Tech shootings).
