Des Moines columnist CALLS FOR REPEAL OF SECOND AMENDMENT, DEATH OF GUN OWNERS
In an op-ed at theÂ Des Moines Register, retired columnist Donald Kaul called for, among other things, a repeal of the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, the forced elimination of theÂ NRAÂ as an organization, and the death of gun owners who refuse to give up their arms, Newsbusters reported Monday.
“Here, then, is my ‘madder-than-hell-and-Iâ€™m-not-going-to-take-it-anymore’ program for ending gun violence in America,” he wrote.
“Repeal the Second Amendment, the part about guns anyway. Itâ€™s badly written, confusing and more trouble than itâ€™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 donâ€™t make our militia bring their own guns to battles. And surely the Founders couldnâ€™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,” he wrote.
“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,” he added.
Kaul said he would also “raze the organizationâ€™s headquarters, clear the rubble and salt the earth, but thatâ€™s optional.”
After saying he would make “ownership of unlicensed assault rifles a felony,” Kaul announced that he would punish such ownership with the death penalty.
“If some people refused to give up their guns, that ‘prying the guns from their cold, dead hands’ thing works for me,” he wrote.
After saying he would kill gun owners who refused to give up their guns, Kaul issued a threat against Republican leaders.
“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 onÂ gun control,” he added.
He concluded his violent rant by saying that if killing gun owners, shredding the Constitution and torturing GOP leaders didn’t work, he would “adopt radical measures.”
Kaul’s rant is only the latest call for violence against those who support the Constitution and the right to keep and bear arms. Since the tragic Newtown shooting, liberals, including a member of theÂ Texas Democratic Party Executive Committee, have called for murdering law-abiding gun owners and supporters of the NRA.
