The spokesman is Bill Ames, president of the Peace Officers Research Association of Nevada and a self-described “member of the NRA and a Republican.”

Says Ames:

“What she's actually talking about is armed resistance….That kind of talk is dangerous and way too extreme.

The first disconnect is his claim that Angle “keeps saying” this. It's a one-time sound bite they selectively culled from the Lars Larson show, and Ames presents no evidence that this has been a recurring, or even a repeated theme in the seven months since this was recorded.

That said, what is it she's really reporting on and cautioning about–as opposed to advocating or inciting, which this ad implies? If the government ignores the Constitution and the rights it is mandated to protect, the Second Amendment may ultimately enable the people to restore its protections against tyranny…?

Let's see what the Founding fathers had to say about that:

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Talk about “over the line.” “dangerous” and “way too extreme”! Read more
