Phoenix councilmember calls gun-toter at Obama town hall meeting “knucklehead.”

“We’re an urban city, and there are individuals trying to hold on to the old ways of the Wild West,” said Phoenix Councilman Michael Nowakowski, himself a gun owner. “We’re going to lose a lot of conventions because of one knucklehead.”

  1. I don’t much care about Phoenix’s convention income, but I do agree with Nowakowski– freedom can exist only hand in hand with common sense. Just because I have the right to carry a firearm in what might be considered an inflammatory manner does not mean it’s a good idea.

    Once again, the question of whether a person has the right to shout “Fire!” in a crowded theatre should not arise– it’s not only dangerous and stupid, it demonstrates that a person may not be responsible enough to engage in the rights granted to adults in this country.
