    I belong to, a generally fun site that posts deals and freebies.  If you like a deal that's posted you give a thumbs up; if you don't like it, you give it a thumbs down.  The posts with the most thumbs up make it to the front page of the site - just some background on how it works.

    There's a group of gun nuts there who have always posted deals on guns and ammo and everyone pretty much ignored them.  

    Yet on the Monday after the Newtown shootings, and just about every day since, they've been posting AR-15 'deals', large clip 'deals', ammo 'deals', and free NRA membership 'deals'.  They call them 'tyranny busting deals' and, like the guy in the pizza joint, they're only doing it to be right in your face about their precious guns.

    The difference post-Newtown is that, for the first time, a big majority on the site have been giving a thumbs-down to their 'tyranny busters'.  This NEVER happened before.  They know the clock is ticking - they readily acknowledge that this stuff will soon be illegal - but they aren't used to people disapproving of their gun nuttery.  The tide is really turning.  It's a small example but people are really getting sick of these goobers.

      I'm aghast but encouraged that people on the site are speaking out against this insanity.  

      It's the Supreme Court, stupid!
