Mob violence as recipe for peace?
"During an address at an anti-gun rally in front of Chuck's, Rev. Michael Pfleger, pastor of St. Sabina's Church, exhorted the crowd to "drag" shop owner, John Riggio, from his shop "like a rat" and "snuff" him. Rev. Pfleger went on to tell the crowd that legislators that vote against gun control legislation should be "snuffed" as well."

Sounds like they're lucky that guns don't kill people; said shop owner would have known that a walking talking victim disarmament zone waited outside trying to work up the courage to be a mob, and the surest way to break up a mob is to shoot the biggest, loudest asshole in the face. I salute Riggio's self control.
Further proof that trying to fight violence by banning guns is like trying to fight urban sprawl by banning hammers.

These folks don't care about protecting anyone. They just want to push their agendas upon the populace by any means necessary - an armed populace makes that difficult.
"People who object to weapons aren't abolishing violence, they're begging for rule by brute force, when the biggest, strongest animals among men were always automatically 'right.' Guns ended that, and social democracy is a hollow farce without an armed populace to make it work." -L. Neil Smith

I thought Jesse was bad.....untill I was there and heard this guy.
Strange how that particular sound bite didn't make it on TV.

Illinois law, while unusually restrictive when it comes to firearms, allows for the carry of loaded weapons on one's property, in one's domecile and one's personally owned business. If Mr. Riggio is anything like the gun shop proprietors I knew when I lived in Illinois, that mob wouldn't get too far before they'd be staring down the business end of a 12 Gauge pump or a 1911.

A priest ?
Advocating lynching ?
Oh well. I thought only mullahs went in for that kind of thing.
Shouldn't he be excommunicated ?
Well, maybe he'll. They have him taped saying that, after all..

(Anonymous): Claims death threats as well
This story actually made the Chicago TV news. Channel 9 carried it as the second story at 9:00 pm last night. They played the audio provided by the ISRA and the good Father did his best spin and then added that he had received numerous death threats from those opposed to his protest. No proof of the threats was provided...
