Violent rhetoric

All of sudden I'm flashing back to this cheerless quote from the July zoning meeting:

"I'm not a developer, and I think our freedoms are being infringed upon here, okay? You guys want to have control, control, control, go someplace else and live, all right? This is the United States. I understand why we've gotta have some sort of coordination, but I'm sorry - don't tell me what I'm going to do with my land. [...applause...] And if you come to tell me that you're going to do something to me, you're going to find a body laying at the end of my driveway."

After today's tragedy, do you think that maybe we can drop the violent rhetoric for a while?
