Upstate Democrat to Gun Supporters: You’re All a Bunch of “Gun-Toting Tea Party Psychotards”

Hudson city Alderman, Dave Marston, has found himself in a bit of hot water after an e-mail exchange that saw him refer to Second Amendment supporters as “gun-toting Tea Party psychotards”, implying that all gun supporters are “unemployed”, threatened to “beat you barbarians back”, and tosses in a Nazi reference for good measure.

Apparently Mr. Marston didn’t get his party’s memo concerning the “new tone” in politics.

The controversy began over a meeting scheduled this evening in the city of Hudson in which Marston serves. The Hudson Common Council is set to discuss a possible all-out gun ban on city owned property, even for citizens with valid pistol permits. A similar ban in Washington, D.C., effective in 1976, was struck down in 2008 by the Supreme Court, with the majority opinion citing that the Constitution provides an individual right to bear arms.

If the Hudson proposal is passed, Republican Mayor William Hallenbeck, Jr. would likely veto the measure. But the problems would not stop there, as that veto could subsequently be overridden by a two-thirds majority vote – the Council is comprised of 10 Democrats and one unregistered member.

In a direct reply to this evening’s meeting, Johanna Johnson-Smith (JJ), a main organizer for the first NY SAFE Act protest rally in Albany last month, e-mailed the Alderman advising him of her intended presence at the meeting. The e-mail refers to the overwhelming opposition that law enforcement officers have toward the SAFE Act, and how that Act seeks to disarm law-abiding citizens. JJ’s most heated comments involve “Democrats and Liberals who have never given a donkey’s behind about the Constitutional Rights of the people who employ them”.

In response, the good Alderman goes on a tirade directed not only at JJ, but the entire movement of Second Amendment supporters.

Here is Marston’s response (emphasis is mine):...
