I agree with the Brady's

On this issue we have common ground, and others have chimed in similarly.

Hinckley wants more unsupervised releases from the booby hatch.  He should never have gotten ANY releases, supervised or otherwise, I think.  I agree with the sentiment, "You shoot a president, you don't get to go outside anymore."  It's a good rule and I stand with them on that.

I bet they don't agree with a single other thing I, or other gun bloggers, believe.

He should have never seen the sky. He should have been executed and his brain dissected decades ago.

When I saw your header, I thought you meant "The Brady Bunch"... And the way the world is today, there is a tendency to wish the Brady world were back.

But yes, that's probably the only place the Bradys and I cross in opinions.

He'll be free and on the streets eventually.

Why is the President's life any more valuable than the rest of ours? The system is set up to replace him instantly.

Murder is murder and special treatment for so victims diminishes it's horror on those (their loved ones more accurately) who are not afforded special regard. As well as putting a lie to "all men created equal"

He's not just the president. Shoot him and you are shooting more than a man. You are shooting 300 million of us, in a way. You don't get to hit the reset button to impress Castro, Arafat, Charlie Manson, or Jodie Foster.

No, a thousand times no. The president is not a king or a god, he is just a man with a job. He is our employee.

That "in a way" nonsense is a damned slippery slope - if the president is so important, how about the Senate Majority Leader? Is he uber-human too? How about the governor? The mayor? The mayor's mistress?

If shooting a VIP = life in a dungeon, how about offending a VIP? Drinking from a white-only fountain?

And be careful about throwing in with the 'kill the crazy' crowd. Three years ago, 52% of the voters in the US voted for a guy whose platform including branding you a felon, taking your guns, and murdering you if you got uppity about it.

Remind me again why he wasn't shot in the act?
