Best-of clip of the insanity at Rob Wittman’s town hall meeting in Warsaw, Virginia, on August 30th, 2009.

Ouch, just ouch.

These people really need to lay off the Glenn Beck and the internet. At the very least, they need to do a little research before they repeat everything they see on television or on the internet. Just because someone writes it on a blog or somewhere else doesn’t make it true.

Heck, just take a look at this blog for example.

    That kid had to be a plant by some whack-job…he obviously didn’t know what the other person told him to inquire, nor did he have the presence to make any sense. I was doing better at 10 than this kid was.

    On the gun bill bit…I’d like to reiterate what the NRA-ILA has posted a billion times to the fear-mongers among us.

    “Clearing Up the Rumors: The Truth About The “Gun Tax Bill”

    Friday, May 29, 2009

    In the last few weeks, NRA-ILA has received hundreds of e-mails warning us about “SB-2099,” a bill that would supposedly require you to report all your guns on your income tax return every April 15.

    Like many rumors, there’s just a grain of truth to this one. Someone’s recycling an old alert, which wasn’t even very accurate when it was new.

    There actually was a U.S. Senate bill with that number that would have taxed handguns—nine years ago. It was introduced by anti-gun Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.), and it would have included handguns under the National Firearms Act’s tax and registration scheme. This has nothing to do with anyone’s Form 1040, of course.

    Fortunately, S. 2099 disappeared without any action by the Senate, back when Bill Clinton was still in the White House. We reported about it back then, just as we report about new anti-gun bills every week. Now, it’s time for gun owners to drop this old distraction and focus on the real threats at hand. ”

    Yes, there are anti-gun legislators, judges, justices, and even Presidents, but sometimes people go off “half-cocked” about the validity of certain bills. As you say…do a little research, then become a pundit. I think we’re all in agreement that such a bill would be ludicrous, but trying to defeat a bill that doesn’t exist, or isn’t up for vote at present…well that just makes you look like one of the “surrounding idiots.”
