Flunkie, no, what I said was I was a big fan of keeping people OUT of the place.
with your endless invective about who's going to burn in hellfire!

Mr. Johns died trying to protect others, but he was KILLED because so many Americans were working so hard to protect the First Amendment Rights of this deranged shooter, countless others like him and the media monsters who make big money encouraging them.
