Who asked for one incident?

Town hall disruptions around the country have led to some outbreaks of violence. Unions participating in town halls have received death threats. At an event held by Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) last week, the threat of violence led her aides to call the police after one attendee dropped a gun.

"Yelling and screaming is counterproductive," she told the Sierra Vista Herald at a Congress on Your Corner event last week. There, one visitor dropped a gun at the meet n' greet held in a Douglas Safeway, her staff says.

That has aides, who called police to the event, concerned for her safety.

"We have never felt the need before to notify law enforcement when we hold these events," said spokesman C.J. Karamargin.

  • One of the callers to the Service Employees International Union said, "I suggest you tell your people to calm down, act like American citizens, and stop trying to repress people's First Amendment rights... That, or you all are gonna come up against the Second Amendment."

  • If the current administration would listen to the American people than these things would not be happening. People would not need to yell. The majority of Americans do NOT want the health care bill to pass yet they are ignoring the American people and pushing through their socialistic agenda.

    Obama had a lower approval rating in his first 6 months than Bush did. The unemployment rate went over 9% even though Obama said we HAD to pass the stimulous bill to keep it from going over 8%.

    There are so many things going so very wrong. The American people are saying WE WILL BE HEARD and because the liberals did not expect such opposition they do not know how to react it so they choose to ignore.

    Never woe is me....I don't condone violence at all...show me where I said I did? Its WRONG to send death threats to ANYONE (even if they belong to a union or the opposing political party!) and to bring a gun to a town hall meeting is outrageous! YOU are condoning violence to back your political view point, thats disgusting
