Urging violence by non-firearm owners against firearm owners and supporters certainly qualifies as non-self-preservation.

Over the past week, I've witnessed a disturbing outbreak of off-the-rails hatred toward gun owners and Second Amendment groups. Whatever your views on guns, we can all agree: The Newtown gunman was a monster who slaughtered his own mother, five heroic educators...
