The outrageous rhetoric and threats coming from some Democrats demonstrates the necessity of the Second Amendment.
In the period immediately before the Civil War, the most ferocious rhetoric came out of the mouths of Southern Democrats who were soon known as fire-eaters. They got that nickname because of the strength of their rhetoric in support of slavery and their willingness to talk about secession as a response to the possibility of abolitionists gaining influence in Congress, and even winning the White House. The louder and more ferocious speeches they gave, the stronger the abolitionist position seemed to become.
Today, we again have Democratic fire-eaters whose violent rhetoric is strengthening the support enjoyed by their opponents. First it was a statement by Professor Erik Loomis at the University of Rhode Island, saying that he wanted Wayne LaPierres head on a stick. Okay, maybe that was just hyperbolic rhetoric, intended as a figure of speech. Now, we have a far less figurative statement by Donald Kaul in the Des Moines Register:
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 organizations headquarters, clear the rubble and salt the earth, but thats 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.
Is that clear enough for you? He is declaring his desire to see millions of Americans killed to support his goals, while at the same time making membership in a peaceful organization a criminal matter.

Logic and intellectual rigor were never Kauls strong suit, but he seems to be more demented than ever.
I have here a very nice little video detailing how to make a good rifle in 50BMG with home machinery. All measurements, procedures, tools and parts.
I’ll not put it online, but if anyone wants it there might be a way...
I didn’t know it was illegal to be a communist.
Some one should tell them.
This guy IS a commie.
I'd suggest we ask Governor McDonnell to take this guy's threat seriously and have him extradited to Virginia for trial and punishment.
The populated part of Iowa is LOST!
