A tweet last year from Sen. Rand Paul (quoting Judge Napolitano) caught the eye of Daily Kos founder and Vox Media co-founder Markos Moulitsas:
.@Judgenap: Why do we have a Second Amendment? It's not to shoot deer. It's to shoot at the government when it becomes tyrannical!

After the shooting this morning in Alexandria, Virginia, the year-old tweet from Sen. Paul (who was at the baseball practice this morning during the shooting) was used as justification to say this:
Republicans are getting what they want. https://t.co/8ZUnso6JCV

Another new low.
What a horrific thing to say.

Attacking a group of congressmen while they play baseball isn't defending yourself against tyranny. You're embarrassing yourself. https://t.co/wEaV1GuxrU

Yeeeah, no. Opening fire on a group of congressmen while they're playing baseball is not "fighting tyranny". https://t.co/hsrylYWjDx

You’re condoning political violence against Republicans but *They’re* the problem. https://t.co/RfFthvgL8D

Par for the “hot take” course today, sadly.
2A is to protect self from government coming to persecute you for dissent/to seize your property. Not to shoot lawmakers playing baseball.

This asshole is associated with Daily-Kos and Vox. Not surprised in the least. https://t.co/jaQjRpKeg2

Your simple "to do" list for today: 1. Lift rock you crawled out from under 2. Immediately crawl back under it 3. Replace rock. EOM

Editor’s note: The post was updated to point out the additional context as to the Rand Paul tweet:
That tweet from Sen Rand Paul is a quote from Judge Napolitano BTW…A lot of people are missing that point.
