The Tea Party really loves their guns

1 post / 0 new

According to new poll by the Public Religion Research Institute – 55% of Tea Partiers think its ok to bring loaded guns to church. Only 38% of Republicans and 9% of Democrats agreed. Of course, next week when the Republican National Convention hits Tampa, Florida – the Tea Partiers dream will come true – as they’ll be able to carry guns all over the city, according to Florida law.

But remember, string, masks, umbrellas, and squirt guns – the stuff that average citizens or peaceful protestors may want to bring – are outlawed. It’s not just a gun nation – it’s a gun nut nation.
