Me neither sir, me neither

In Oak Harbor WA, a wounded veteran was asked to leave a council meeting after attending a meeting armed. 

An unidentified man though made the most thought provoking statement:

Another citizen addressed the council and stated that his mother was a Jew and that his parents had died in Hitler's gas chambers. "I will not go into the night quietly while these two ask me to board the train," he said.

The man was carrying an M-1 rifle on his shoulder.

I'd stand shoulder to shoulder with this man any day.  And yet, not a single shot was fired, nor a weapon raised and aimed at someone in anger.    No, this was done peacefully, yet forcefully.   We should all hope that this soapbox never reaches the ammo box.
