I think she's as much of a nutbar as the guy who did the shooting. Always have. The context is par for her course.
Can we just blame the guy that did the shooting?
Vice presidential candidate and former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin has been granted a temporary restraining order against 18-year-old Shawn Christy for buying a gun and then sending her the receipts.

..and who is going to do that....the government? The guy selling the gun?
I'm wondering how this conversation would change should it come out that this nut was a registered Democrat?...
A lot of people assume that he was a Palin supporter................
Time will tell
Ever heard of a PAL? The process should include the aforementioned requirements.
Any other stupid questions?
Any other stupid comments?
No. I believe in people being accountable, and if they were to sit back and seriously ponder their actions, they could probably see how they contribute to growing partisan divides, and increasing anger amongst supporters. They could probably see how their rhetoric is contributing to the hate.
But like you already said, nothing is going to change. People who hate Palin will still hate her. People who hate Obama will still hate him. And there will be an opinion out there on a blog, or conventional media source to cater to these nutjobs. To pat them on the bottom and tell them they're special. To confirm their hatred. To reinforce their ignorance.
And I wouldn't have it any other way, except of course my beliefs in personal accountability that obviously aren't held as important by many in the media.
Speaking of twisting and turn...You didn't ask me to explain PALs to you.
That's right I didn't. So, lets just forget you even brought them up. The question was posed to you (in regards to "intense background checks, mental screening and extensive training) "who is going to do that"? Since you have so little use for bureaucrats I was just wondering how you think people that can't run a utility system can run something as complex as a mental screening. Alternatively, if you don't feel these incompetent civil servants are capable of such a difficult task, you could always explain who you think should be doing it.
