Quote of the day—Donald Kaul

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.

Kaul: Nation needs a new agenda on guns
[I think I owe a H/T to some blogger but I lost that info. Sorry about that.

In addition to being violently opposed to the 2nd Amendment he is willing to (have someone else) use violence against people exercising their First Amendment rights (freedom of association in this case) and the Fifth Amendment (due process).

Suggestion to Kaul: You should plan on take point on those plans of yours because that would probably result in a less painful end than waiting around for someone else’s point to find you.

Oh, and another thing. The “my cold dead hands” thing went out in the mid-90’s although Charlton Heston did use a few times after that. It was replaced with, “When you reanimate your cold, dead, hands.”—Joe]

  1. Since the Obama regime was apparently able to give Dick Gregory a special dispensation to break DC gun laws, I suggest the following:

    Give all commenters advocating violence against gun owners special dispensation to disarm them, by themselves and without government help. Said gun owners would still be legally entitled to self defense, but the gun grabbers would be equally entitled to try and take their guns. The rules would essentially be no-holds-barred; gun grabbers would be free to use stealth and break into gun owners’ houses in the middle of the night, but gun owners would not have to follow Marquis of Queensbury rules either. If a gun owner were to capture a gun grabber on his own property and castrate him, and then set him free, that would be perfectly legitimate as well.

    One caveat: after their initial call for gun confiscation, the individuals in question would have one month in which to present evidence that they had made a good faith effort to follow through with their talk. In the absence of such evidence, every such gun grabber would have his name legally changed to Trash Talking Coward, and would be banned from using any other legal name.

    • Small correction Ken, the gun grabbers are already castrated so that is not an adequate punishment. I mean, if they had balls they actually would follow through with their threats and personally try to take our firearms and not resort to sending someone else to do their dirty work.

      Mr. Kaul is unbalanced at best.

  2. Messed up the italics; the only italicized phrase should have been “by themselves and without government help.” I don’t know if you can change that, but it would be appreciated if you did.

    • It’s easy with WordPress so I did it. With my previous blogging software it was much more challenging.

  3. But of course, Kaul’s verbal anal emissions were all “satire”, so he wasn’t really using his First Amendment liberty to denigrate everyone’s Second Amendment liberty and some people’s Fourth and Fifth Amendment liberties.
    Remember he’s a professional, so he’s able to use “satire” in this fashion. Conservatives are unable to do so, so if this were directed not at McConnell and Boehner, but, say, Pelosi and Reed, that would be terroristic threats.

    This is all apart from the curiosity of Kaul making threats to people whom he is afraid of because they own guns and he’s afraid they’ll use them on him because of his violent opinions.

  4. It’s an attempt to move the Overton Window toward totalitarianism.

    We are to believe that the U.S. was improperly and unjustly founded. We are to ignore the ideal of power residing in the people, to forget the power relationship that built this country. It’s all bad, it’s all horrible, and yet they don’t appear able to explain just how and why their totalitarian end game could be better than liberty. The argument appears to be founded in pure hatred, with no other motivation.

    • And from the same post of Beck’s;
      “There is no way that resort[ing] to non-essential trivialities is going to address this matter.”

      That man gets it.
