We'll 'pry guns from cold, dead fingers': Columnist proposes killing NRA members...
WorldNetDaily ^ | January 1, 2013 | Drew Zahn

Posted on 01/02/2013 5:43:53 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

DES MOINES, Iowa – For 50 years, the left-leaning columnist Donald Kaul has raged against guns, but after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, he says, it’s time for “anger,” killing gun owners and dragging legislators who disagree with gun control behind pickup trucks until they get the message.

The Pulitzer Prize-nominated columnist penned an alarming screed published in the Des Moines Register in which he further suggested the Second Amendment be repealed and the National Rifle Association be declared a terrorist organization.

“During my 50-year career,” Kaul wrote, “every time some demented soul would take a semiautomatic gun and clean out a post office, a school or a picnic, I’d get up on my soap box and let loose with a withering diatribe about guns, the National Rifle Association and weak-kneed politicians. Did it about 75 times, give or take.”

Yet each time, he lamented, the only result was a spike in gun sales.

“That’s obscene,” he opined. “Here, then, is my ‘madder-than-hell-and-I’m-not-going-to-take-it-anymore’ program for ending gun violence in America.”

His first step: “Repeal the Second Amendment, the part about guns anyway. It’s badly written, confusing and more trouble than it’s worth. … 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.”

Second: “Declare the NRA a terrorist organization and make membership illegal. … 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.”(continued)

Why doesn’t he go ahead and try.

What did King Leonidas say? “Come and get them” or words which could be translated that way.

I suspect there are quite a few who hope he and his kind do try and take them.

‘prying the guns from their cold, dead hands’ thing works for me.

Takes at least two for a gun fight and this person of interest has been
watching to many movies. After the fifth gun battle before 10am
with multiple deaths on both sides the police would reconsider their efforts.

That is enough of that, Mr. Journalist. Look, both the First and Second Amendments are pretty plain on the corresponding freedom. There aren’t any “except for” clauses. That said, there sure are plenty of restrictions considered permissible under the Second Amendment. Well, what’s good for the goose and all that. I accuse Kahl of journalistic brandishing. There should be punishment for that. There would be if it was done with a sword. Why exempt the pen? Let’s start enacting laws under the First Amendment corresponding to those under the Second and see how it goes. Oh, how they will howl. The aim (NPI), of course, is to have it all thrown out, not to restrict Freedom of Speech.

Shortly after the collapse of the Soviet Union, there was an international conference in Europe which was attended by high-ranking military officers from a number of countries.

During a break in the meetings, a group of military officers were gathered together, enjoying their refreshments and engaging in small talk.

One of the Americans asked his counter-part, a Russian general, if the Soviet Union had ever considered invading the United States during the Cold War. The Russian general laughed and said, “Oh no! You people have too many guns over there!”

he wants to murder law-abiding people, no focus on the real problem of criminals - ie the evil intent people - he believes the law-abiding are no different than the criminals.

i think the police need to arrest him for inciting hatred, and for proposing to commit mass murder of innocent citizens. and maybe they ought to confiscate any of his guns, he self-admitedly sounds very angry and unstable.

Gun control laws. Why isn’t NY State prosecuting the bimbo that bought the guns for the killer of the firemen as an accessory to murder and attempted murder? All of a sudden that one fell off the radar as soon as it was learned that it was some bimbo that got the guns for him. Where’s that rigorous enforcement of the gun laws?

No kidding. During the Apollo/Soyuz days when the Cosmonauts were training at NASA in Houston, a hunting buddy of mine, among others, took the Cosmonauts to the Houston Astrohall gun show.

They were asked not to speak and raise any attention.

There were about 3500 tables at the time and being it was before 1986, there were table after table of Class3’s.

I would have loved to be the fly on the wall the next time they called Moscow.

Tell you what Kaul, I swore an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Sounds to me like you have a problem with the 2nd Amendment to our Constitution. You want to try to do something about it, be my guest. I won’t start it, but I guarantee you I will finish it. Come on by anytime.

Kaul is a Liberal Twit!

Well, he was a liberal twit...

Back before "The Newspaper That Iowa Depends On" became "The Newspaper That Iowa No Longer Subscribes To," my folks were Register junkies and they sort of liked Donald Kaul, so I started reading his columns as they often had some sort of goofy regional interest. He increasingly became blatantly partisan, and struck us more and more as being (as my dad would plainly put it), "full of s**t." Around the period when Kaul had a hair up his backside about a state rep named Harold Knight, something must've snapped.

(Knight had referred to Des Moines as a "jungle." He was prescient. Kaul, however, wasn't going to let some rube from up around Humboldt call the crime capital of Iowa bad names.)

I would suggest that those were the days when he was still a liberal twit. By the time he got all "brigaty" and far too fine a social critic for the ignorant hayseeds who had kept him from going back to Hamtramck with his kielbasa in his hand, he was a full-blown leftist hack who managed to alienate the Register. Considering that the Register of that era was being steered by Michael Gartner (later of fake exploding GM pickup fame) and the egregiously bleeding-hearted Geneva Overholser, this was no mean feat.

I thought Kaul had either died or entered a monastery until a few years back when a minor rag reprinted a column of his wherein he came across as a combination of angry "look-at-me" progressive and scolding prissy aunt. His limited entertainment ability had obviously failed him completely. Now this shows up, spotlighting him as one of those literary (Polish) "sausages sputtering in his own grease." I'm a bit surprised he didn't have another heart attack before he put down the crayons this time around.

This marvelous woman is sure to be on the forefront once again against the tyranny of the “ruling class” who, regardless of their party persuasion, feel that the People of the United States should not be allowed the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Why does the “ruling class” think this? Because it is in their agenda to control, because otherwise WE control them, as the Founders always intended. This goes along with the “constitution is outmoded and needs to be gotten around” crowd— who are ruthless tyrants in their goals. Period. Let them try to deny it (as they try to deny that THEY themselves have firearms, but WE should not).

A quote from Suzanna Hupp in the Texas Legislature:
“How a politician stands on the Second Amendment tells you how he or she views you as an individual... as a trustworthy and productive citizen, or as part of an unruly crowd that needs to be lorded over, controlled, supervised, and taken care of.”

This is typical socialistic/communistic morality. It is perfectly moral for liberals to own weapons or to hire armed guards. It is immoral for anyone that isn’t a liberal or member of the ruling class to own guns. The basic presupposition is that only liberals have morals. It is a twisted logic. Liberals see no contradiction in their logic when they proscribe using guns to kill those that want to own guns.

First of all, sorry that Pulitzer Prize thing didn't work out for you. But hey! A "nomination" is good. LOL!

It is you commie types who are always spewing that vomit about the U.S. Constitution being "a living and breathing document". Therefore, the Founding Fathers knew exactly what they were doing when they guaranteed Americans the right to keep and bear arms no matter what the arms looked like or how powerful they were going to be in the future. Sorry Skippy. You lose.

For four hundred years in this country, my family has had a well-earned reputation for being well-armed, and of not being afraid to use those arms if life, liberty, property, or their communities were threatened.

I'm a descendent of Alice Proctor, the wife of Virginia ancient planter John Proctor. In the Indian attacks and massacres of 1622 in which as many as a third of the Virginians were killed, John was in England, and she and her household held off the savages for a month. The British officers threatened to burn down the Proctor Plantation if she didn't remove herself from the frontier back to Pace's Paines, which she then had to do, but the Indians knew better than to ever come anywhere close to her or her family again.

A few generations later, at the start of the Revolution, five Proctor brothers, including my forebear Little Page Proctor, were part of the Virginia militia that secured the NW wilderness against the British-allied tribes. They were among the forty men with Daniel Boone who held off more than 400 Indians for ten days at Boonesborough, in what became Kentucky.

They knew that when it came down to it they had to depend on themselves and their neighbors, not on some far-off government.

Anyone who thinks it is fundamentally any different now is fooling themselves.

We will NOT disarm. Our natural rights, the right of self-defense being foremost, were given to us by God Himself, and Barack Obama and Dianne Feinstein are NOT welcome to them.

“Among the natural rights of the Colonists are these: First, a right to life; Secondly, to liberty; Thirdly, to property; together with the right to support and defend them in the best manner they can."

- Samuel Adams

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men..."

- the Declaration of Independence
