re: #369 Walter L. Newton

What does signing some document or statement accomplish that a public statement by the head of this or that doesn’t? Id some nut case for the hills of “___” comes out of the woodwork and shoots something up, or someone(s) up, not signed anything is going to change what happened or distance anyone from what happens.

It simply makes it harder to retract or denounce when your own John Hancock is on the statement. I agree it will not stop people who really want to cause harm and perhaps the GOP is a little too close to completely distance themselves from possible future violence but it would still be a step in the right direction at least.
