"This kind of reaction -- automatically lining up on the wrong side of reasonable measures to improve the safe use and ownership of guns -- aids and abets the crisis of child shooting deaths," he said.

That's nice; mob justice.  This thing invites people to mark the houses of "suspected" unsafe gun owners - who decides what constitutes "unsafe" and who edits or revises these tags to make sure they aren't part of a plan to trash some innocent person's reputation, or to incite violence against them?

This should lead to some serious tort lawsuits against this stupid idiot immediately.

This is going to end in someone getting killed, and not because of an "unsafe gun."

Is it too late for you to switch from tax law?

Unfortunately that is almost certainly true, and the person who should be the most worried about that is this stupid idiot; I, for one, would have no trouble having him charged with being an accessory to murder, or in a conspiracy to commit murder - the facts of his involvement are already established so there would be no question of the police or the prosecutors resorting to their SOP of lying and inventing evidence.
