In Atlas Shrugged (a book I have yet to read and a movie I have yet to watch), character Henry Reardon states “If you think you have the right to use force against me, bring guns.” Here’s a liberal who seems to want to use force
(The Blaze) In an opinion column published in the Des Moines Register on Dec. 29, columnist Donald Kaul is uncensored in his disdain for the Second Amendment and anyone who values their right to bear arms. In his column, he calls for a full repeal of the Second Amendment, advocates for violence against Republican leaders “until they see the light on gun control” and declares the National Rifle Association a terrorist organization.
The piece, titled “Kaul: Nation needs a new agenda on guns,” seems to have been inspired in part by the tragic shooting in Newtown, Conn. where shooter Adam Lanza opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School, killing 20 children and six adults. Lanza also killed his mother before he began his shooting spree at the school.
From that column
The thing missing from the debate so far is anger — anger that we live in a society where something like the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre can happen and our main concern is not offending the NRA’s sensibilities.
That’s obscene. Here, then, is my “madder-than-hell-and-I’m-not-going-to-take-it-anymore” program for ending gun 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.) 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. None of that is going to happen, of course. But I’ll bet gun sales will rise.
Well, if Liberals like Raul want to repeal the 2nd, first they should try reading it and understanding it, because it is all about guns and Right of The People to own one, not just for home defense, not just for hunting and sport shooting, but as protection against the government. Pre-Revolution the British colonial government attempted to take all guns away from the Colonists. And said militias did generally bring their own guns to the fight.
Scratch that, the first thing liberals should do is give up their own guns and make sure all their body guards are disarmed. All of them, from useless idiot Democrat supporters to limo liberals like Michael Moore and Hollywood celebs to elected officials all the way up to Obama. Walk the talk.
If memory serves, Communists around the world killed almost 150,000,000 people. American communists were working hand in hand with the Soviet Union, attempting to undermine the United States.
And then Raul proposes murder and vicious punishment against gun owners and Republicans. Typical liberal, reverting back to their violent roots, which always seethes underneath their veneer of peacefulness.
