    I've grown to love Joan Walsh, she's brilliant and patient. I say the latter because I saw her deal with Bill O'Reilly on his show. She's written quite an expose on our gun-happy, bloody-tree happy friend William Kostric:

    So what? Got a point? Simple enough question for ya. If simply carrying a gun invokes the specter of violence and murder, then why do we let police and Secret Service carry them amongst us? Why do we allow US Marshals to be armed and the FBI? I mean if all it takes is the mere presence of an armed person to invoke this fear and danger and thoughts of assassination and murder, why allow the Government to be armed?

    Simply carrying a weapon in A State where it is perfectly legal to do so invokes no such images except among those wanting to create a panic where none exists. Explain why not a single person in the group he was in or anyone viewing him outside the group actually feared for their life? Explain why, if his mere presence there armed was such a threat, why wasn't he arrested?

    The man who brought a gun to President Barack Obama's town hall meeting on Tuesday is a former Arizona resident with ties to an extreme right-wing group that calls for "resistance...against unconstitutional or illegal behavior by government officials."

    William Kostric, 36, formerly of Scottsdale, stood outside the New Hampshire meeting on healthcare with a gun holstered at his thigh and holding a sign proclaiming that "it is time to water the tree of liberty."

    The quote, often referenced by militia members and those in separatist movements, refers to Thomas Jefferson's famous call for vigilance: "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of tyrants and patriots."
