Lock And Load --- more GOP candiate "jokes" about killing liberals

Lock And Load

Such funny guys, especially with the death threats and all:

Congressional District 11 GOP candidate Brad Goehring is drawing fire for his confrontational Facebook statement today:

He later said he meant to "thin the herd" with votes, not bullets and that he just hit the send button to early and then just left it there because he didn't think anyone would take it seriously. That's nice.

But the truth is that this is a very old joke, which I'm sure this numbskull has seen:

Here is the story of some of these adorable jokes, but the first "Liberal Hunting Permit" shown above has been around for years. These are the kind of things they sell CPAC every year. It's perfectly common right wing rhetoric.
