    "Do not blame the tool for the violent actions of the individual" That is a great quote. Reminds me a lot of what most of us have been saying concerning gun control. Think back a hundred or more years, and hatchets and bows and arrows were used primarily for hunting. However, a few renegades used them for violence. I wonder if there was an outcry then to outlaw these tools? Were the libs of the day getting on their soap boxes and touting the need to outlaw 20 arrow quivers, or the size of the hatchet blade allowable by law? Some people were very skilled with these "weapons", some even killed women and children with them. But looking back through history, I can't find anywhere where it was mentioned that it had anything to do with the "tool" of choice, rather the overall violent nature of some individuals. Interesting isn't it? The smarter we get, the more common sense we lose.

    It don't sound like too many people bleive in gun rights in Idaho. Or maybe they were to busy or flat uninterested to just show up and it kind of reminds you of a tea party rally alot of noise and nothing else.

    I just spent 2 cents on a new radio. It automatically seeks and tunes to the nearest station spewing hate. Saves a lot of time when I need something to post on the comment board.

    Go Freedom Fighters and believers in our god given right to be free and prosper and be independently wealthy.

    The Deseret News has cleverly used terminology of "advocates" they describe criminals, this rally to support this country and our culture and Constitution as a criminal revolt. These are freedom fighters for the inalienable rights that the news media and government is trying to take from us.

    Freedom and being an American is a life long risk where independent life is more valuable than concentration camps and living in fear of governemnt. The 2nd amendment denies the government any right to make us live in fear and no news media or story will ever change that. Guns are weapon and arms of choice until we can develop the deadly ray gun that kills by heat and fire then that will be our arms of choice. Arms are not limited to guns, it can be anything that will take a life.

    I wonder how the news media would portray defenders of the Constitution if these rallies had everyone carrying pitchforks and sickles which were weapons of the revolution?
