Des Moines Columnist Calls for Repeal of 2nd Amendment, Death of Gun Owners

In an op-ed at the Des Moines Register, retired columnist Donald Kaul called for, among other things, a repeal of the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, the forced elimination of the NRA as an organization, and the death of gun owners who refuse to give up their arms, Newsbusters reported Monday.

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

“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,” he wrote.

“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,” he added.

Kaul said he would also “raze the organization’s headquarters, clear the rubble and salt the earth, but that’s optional.”

After saying he would make “ownership of unlicensed assault rifles a felony,” Kaul announced that he would punish such ownership with the death penalty.

“If some people refused to give up their guns, that ‘prying the guns from their cold, dead hands’ thing works for me,” he wrote.
