    I assume an act of sedition would need to be a serious threat as opposed to somebody drunk behind a twitter app. Any call to overthrow the government that includes the phrase "Borrow our dad's hunting rifles" is obviously not to be taken seriously.

    “2nd Amendment is for everyone including black men with long guns but it's f---ing time for us white liberal men to stand up for our brothers & sisters. Borrow our dad's hunting rifles & go nose to nose with Trump’s gang of misfit tools. Let's do it,” he wrote on Twitter.

    This should get him a visit from the Secret Service for several hours of intense conversation...

    Nah. He's not relevant nor powerful enough to rate a 2nd look. Dumbassery isn't illegal when done by 'tards.

    Having to (insert comment here) Rosie, is the insanity defense.

    I’d be happy if Twitter would just be consistent and quit flagging conservative ideas as dangerous while letting stand calls to use guns against Trump supporters.

    He's just advocating for the Second Amendment and bearing arms, why would you have a problem with that.

    So your interpretation of the 2nd Amendment is that it means we should arm ourselves to go "toe to toe" with our political opponents?

    I need no reason to exercise my rights. Having and exercising Rights are not based upon a reason.

    For what? We can all assume what he's getting at, but his words are no different than, "Lets all grab our AR-15's and go on down to the Michigan State House and show Whitmer we mean business".

    Wanting to go "nose to nose" with some one is not a crime. He made no specific threat to any specific person, his right to say stupid things allows for that, especially when it comes to politics.

    Yes, that's exactly what people did peacefully in Michigan and other places while armed. They took guns, marched on the Capitol and stood up to the politicians there.

    Tom Arnold has some serious mental issues. He's sick.

    How many comments have you all seen referencing a "2nd amendment solution" with regards to a number of democratic politicians, administrations and state and local governments on GT and other gun boards? How many of you called the authorities?

    He's just having a hard time being irrelevant.
