Coalition To Stop Gun Violence Jumps on DHS Bandwagon

Just one day after it came to light that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) considers Second Amendment activists, veterans, and other law-abiding citizens to be possible "right-wing extremists," the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) sent out an email adding talk show host Glenn Beck and Fox News to the list.

They wrote
...the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence is growing increasingly disturbed by violent, anti-government, pro-gun rhetoric that is now being disseminated by "mainstream" media news sources.

Apparently CSGV does not like the fact that Mr. Beck is outspoken about his support for the 2nd Amendment and his opposition to the policies of President Obama.

In their email titled Insurrection Goes "Mainstream" CSGV writes:

Glenn Beck is just one of many right-wing commentators who have been encouraging Americans to arm themselves against what they describe as a "totalitarian" Obama Administration and Democratic Congress.
I don't know anything about Mr. Beck specifically encouraging people to "arm themselves" against the Obama Administration but if all it takes to qualify as an insurrectionist is to express an opinion against the policies of the government, I presume CSGV will soon write about their disdain for Jefferson, Henry, Samuel Adams, and the other Founding Fathers.
