Is a revolution in the US’ near future?

On Tuesday, New Hampshire state legislator Rep. Edmond Gionet (R-NH) attended as an honored guest state Sen. Kelly Ayotte’s (R-NH) Warren Town Hall. Gionet spoke to those in attendance, sharing his views.

“One of the things that concerns my constituents — the majority of my constituents –- is the appointments that are now being made in Washington by our President and the way he is handling the illegal immigrants, nationalizing them and giving them the opportunity to vote, and wanting to keep track of our guns. They are worried that they are going to have to use these guns because of our own government. Now is there anything in Washington that says — any telltale signs that maybe we might be headed for an internal revolution given the fact that these kinds of things are going on? This is what’s said in the groups that I sit in.

New Hampshire state legislator Rep. Stella Tremblay (R-Auburn) told a conservative talk show host Tuesday that she knows the federal government was behind the Boston bomb attacks because Jeff Bauman, a bombing victim who helped identify the suspects, was not "screaming in agony" after both his legs were blown off.

Tremblay, a tea party member with ties to the birther movement, posted comments on Glenn Beck’s Facebook page saying the federal government caused the bombing.

On Wednesday, a Fairleigh Dickinson University poll revealed that nearly three in 10 voters in the U.S. believe Americans may have to arm themselves to defend their rights and liberties, while half of them believe Congress needs to pass new laws protecting the public against gun violence.

The poll found that beliefs held about guns and insurrections against the government are conditional on party affiliation: 29 percent of voters, including 44 percent of Republicans believe an armed revolution might be necessary to protect liberties and rights from the federal government.

Former Gov. Sarah Palin (R. A) posted on her Facebook page, “The latest gun control bill should be filibustered and defeated. I can not [sic] and will not support politicians who support any more limits on our Second Amendment rights.”

As politicians continue to fan the fires of discontent, could we be heading towards an armed revolution led by a very vocal minority? Time will tell.
