Those Teabaggers? Just expressing their views civilly, right???

From HuffingtonPost (though it's available elsewhere) -

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.

Yup. They're just "Just the good ol' boys, Never meanin' no harm..." unless someone disagrees with them.

I hope that just as all good people should judge another person based on the content of their character and not on the color of their skin, so would I presume that tea party participants (and not people being uncivil for reasons of any sort) would also be judged individually and not unduly blamed for a gun dropped by accident.

I've heard of many people (even a constable) accidentally dropping a gun (or a lit match) but such should be a reminder that one should always be careful with tools that can cause grave damage to others (in other words automobiles).
