Tom Delay tells Chris Matthews he would carry a gun on the House floor to a debate.

I really can't believe what I just listened to on the Chris Matthew's show. Matthews had former House Majority Leader Tom Delay on discussing his 3 year sentence on a money laundering conviction. Matthews and Delay also debated the 2nd Amendment again, one of the Republicans favorite. Delay said he would broadcast to all licensed gun owners to come to his town hall meetings in Texas. He said he would feel really "safe" if the people in the crowd were carrying concealed weapons as long as they were licensed. Delay also told Matthews he would carry a gun on the House Of Representatives floor for his safety if he could.

Delay was also showing support for Republican. Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas. Rep. Gohmert plans on introducing a bill allowing guns to be carried in the District of Columbia. The reason Gohmert said he's introducing the bill is in wake of the Tucson tragedy, there has been a rash of legislation further infringing on the 2nd Amendment. Gohmert himself said he would not carry a gun but would support any members of congress who wanted to.

Two of the most popular Republicans, Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh, also showed their support for the Tuscon tragedy in their own unique way. Rush Limbaugh just recently put a very supportive non provocative Bill Board up in Tucson Arizona, very near were the shooting rampage went down. Sarah Palin thought the best way she could show her support was to agree to HeadLine a Gun Convention later this month in Reno Nevada, sponsored by the Safari Club International.

I think it's time to tell these jerks in both parties to stop the crazy talk. It might be your right to push the boundaries with talk and action but you have to be responsible with those rights. If you push too far to prove your point you might get a crazy person like Jared Loughner to take it too far and shoot up a crowd.
