Kaul: Nation needs a new agenda on guns | The Des Moines Register | desmoinesregister.com

Typical liberal, first to advocate violence and the stripping of rights from anyone one who doesn’t walk in lock-step with their agenda…. Kaul: Nation needs a new agenda on guns | The Des Moines Register | desmoinesregister.com.

I’m not going to ask you to read all of the above article but, here are the main points he advocated in his own words…

• 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.) 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.

• 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.

And if that didn’t work, I’d adopt radical measures…”

I’ll leave it to our listeners and readers to make up their own minds which side of this discussion they are on.  Make no mistake; this man is advocating the idea of classifying an entire swath of law-abiding citizens as terrorists and criminals and killing them if they don’t comply with his personal agenda.  And then there’s that whole political discourse thing where people on the left complain about Sarah Palin “taking aim” at politicians while this columnist advocates dragging two sitting members of Congress around a parking lot in the same style of the lynching of James Byrd.

I may have been born into a Democratic household but, this is the kind of stuff that makes me ashamed to know anyone associated with the party.

  1. I can not use the language I would prefer to use describing what I think of this.

    I am a gun owner. I will always be a gun owner. It is a tool, nothing more.

    In my opinion, if the great tragedies had not happened with guns, it would have been some other tool…a knife, a car, explosives, a baseball bat. Determined criminals will always find a weapon.

    The original amendments had a purpose and still have a purpose. I think they should leave them alone.

    But I am only one.

  2. Is it just a coincidence that the Demoines Register and the White Plains Journal are both Gannet Co publications?
