Repeal the 2nd Amendment, NRA members are terrorists

Then I would tie Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, our esteemed Republican leaders, to the back of a Chevy pickup truck and drag them around a parking lot until they saw the light on gun control.

This statement was written by Donald Kaul, a supposed, retired Des Moines Register columnist who’s promised to write only on topics that move him after having a heart attack back in July.

His gun agenda was published on Dec. 29, 2012, two weeks after the Sandy Hook shooting tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut.

Kaul is so mad, “madder-than-hell-and-I’m-not-going-to-take-it-anymore,” that he has a program for ending violence in America:

  • Repeal the Second Amendment, the part about guns anyway. It’s badly written, confusing and more trouble than it’s worth. It offers an absolute right to gun ownership, but it puts it in the context of the need for a “well-regulated militia.” We don’t make our militia bring their own guns to battles. And surely the Founders couldn’t have envisioned weapons like those used in the Newtown shooting when they guaranteed gun rights. Owning a gun should be a privilege, not a right.
  • Declare the NRA a terrorist organization and make membership illegal. Hey! We did it to the Communist Party, and the NRA has led to the deaths of more of us than American Commies ever did. I would also raze the organization’s headquarters, clear the rubble and salt the earth, but that’s optional. He wants to make ownership of unlicensed assault rifles a felony. If some people refused to give up their guns, that “prying the guns from their cold, dead hands” thing works for me.

Threatening government officials of the United States is a serious federal crime. Last time I heard of someone being dragged behind a pickup truck it was the lynching and murder of James Byrd, Jr. in Texas in 1998. Kaul quickly adds that “none of that is going to happen, of course.”

President Barack Obama signed in to law in 2009 the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, which expands existing federal law of hate crimes motivated by race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and disability. The supporters of 2nd Amendment rights should have been added to the list.

Piers Morgan

Piers Morgan

There are other veiled threats of gun right advocates. Piers Morgan, host for CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight, and gun control advocate, interviewed Alex Jones, an outspoken gun advocate, who may have served only to boost Morgan’s dismal ratings. The day after the interview, Abby Huntsman of the Huffington Post went on Morgan’s program and said she’d love to see Piers Morgan “pop” Alex Jones with a semi-automatic, as proposed by Buzz Bissinger of the Daily Beast.

On Jan. 4, 2013, John Noveske, a gun manufacturer and advocate, was killed in an auto accident in Oregon less than a week after posting on Facebook the list of children on psychiatric drugs who have committed mass murders and suicide. His last question was: “What drugs was Peter Lanza on, age 20, killed 26 and wounded 2 in Newton Ct”?

On Jan. 3, 2013, Keith Ratliff was found dead with a shot to the head at a weapons development and testing facility he operated in Carnesville, Georgia. Ratliff was a business partner at FPSRussia, YouTube’s ninth most popular channel with over 3 million subscribers.  A self-proclaimed gun nut, Ratfliff said in a rare face appearance in one of his videos, “Every one of you should be able to own an assault weapon of your choice because that’s what the 2nd Amendment is about.”

american spirit armsOther threats against gun manufacturers and distributors are directed at their bank account. Joe Sirochman, owner of American Spirit Arms, an American-made gun manufacturer in Scottsdale, Arizona, was told by Bank of America after they froze nearly $100,000 worth of deposits: “We believe you should not be selling guns and parts on the internet.” Although it is legal for the company to do so, it was after Sirochman’s Facebook posting that went viral that Bank of America released the deposits.

Other threats against gun advocates are attacks to shut down their right to free speech. Cyber-bullying is not unique to Facebook, but it is Facebook who now is the bully by disabling accounts with speech that refers to historical British rule in India as a violation of their “community guidelines.”

Girls Just Wanna Have Guns with Regis Giles website puts together other pieces of the puzzle on seeming coincidences of the left’s continued war on the 2nd Amendment.

So, repeal the 2nd Amendment, and the NRA members are terrorists. That seems to be the left’s solution for gun violence.

  1. Pam this is a bold column. Mr. Kaul is better left in retirement. If the maker from “Innocence of Muslims” is in jail than then this piece of garbage should be too. Last I checked, the threatening of a member of Congress is a crime. Which I can’t say I agree with but at least enforce it equally.And secondly, out of touch and out of reality libs like Kaul better watch what they wish for. If you want to declare the NRA and it’s members terrorists, better find a better place to hide than a brownstone in the city. Something tells me it won’t suffice.

    Richard, thanks. Imagine for a moment if a conservative said to “tie [insert a Democrat member of Congress] to the back of a pickup and drag them around until they saw the light.” I’m sure that would make the main stream media! The video “Innocence of Muslims” (a parody) doesn’t compare in offensiveness to Mr. Kaul’s hate speech.

  4. You know what… they have the narrative such that I couldn’t even imagine it. I also couldn’t image a Republican Rep calling liberalism a mental illness. We are in dangerous territory when people die mysteriously and conveniently. Maybe it’s a nutty conspiracy and maybe I am holding this weeks Powerball Winner. Both are highly unlikely. Also, for those who think our government is above abuse and tyranny, take a gander at what happened to Jason Mattera today after asking Bloomberg a question. Pursued and harassed for blocks by security and NYPD police. All for exercising his 1st amendment right to free speech and press. HOW DARE HE!

  5. They were murdered within a day of each other and not a peep from mainstream media about it. It’s so obvious the left wants to disarm Americans, to ban all guns, so we’ll be like the UK. Why else is Piers Morgan kept on MSM? His ratings are terrible, but he’s from the UK, and of course, he thinks guns should be banned so he’s allowed to tout his drivel because it fits in with the left’s narrative.

    The left wants to paint the picture that gun advocates and 2nd Amendment right supporters are scary and violent and they use MSM to do it. Jason Mattera points out Bloomberg’s hypocrisy and he is immediately intimidated by Bloomberg’s security and police. The Democrats, especially those on the far left, have a history of silencing dissenters with thuggery. We know why the MSM doesn’t report it, because they are on their side. There isn’t “fair and balanced” news reporting on MSM. They might as well be called America’s Pravda.
