Des Moines Register columnist Donald Kaul has written a column on the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in which he calls for repealing the second amendment and branding the NRA as a terrorist organization.
Mr. Kaul writes:
“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.”

Sandy Hook Elementary School location of the massacre
Here are a few of the responses to his column thus far:
Tom Brannon · Top CommenterDon, let me start by saying your a complete idiot. Second it’s liberals like you that give America a bad image, to stop gun violence, you want to harm others? Did I mention your a IDIOT? Please shut up, your a worthless has been that really sucked ass even in your prime.
Troy Thomas · Wheaton High SchoolI have never read a more irresponsible, asinine, suggestion for reigning in violence in this country than yours. You sir, are a flipping moron! You want to confiscate all guns, make illegal to be an NRA member, you even go so far as to want to impose the death penalty on individual citizens that refuse to turn over their weapons, which are Constitutionally protected. Here is a novel idea, probably well over your pea sized brain, why not discuss the violent films turned out by Hollywood? Or the violent video games our kids are always playing. Or maybe even, blame the crime on the person that committed it? But that isn’t how you liberals think, you would rather trample the rights of others instead of holding the criminals accountable.
Usually, I don’t wish ill on anybody, but you, I hope a criminal breaks into your house one night and you have nothing to defend yourself with. Maybe you’ll get shot, or have another heart attack, and die you worthless piece of garbage.
Dennis WathenThose are a foolish-silly thoughts that have extream consequences – I hope and pray that you never experience the horror of someone entering your home and threaten you and more importanly your family.
the removal of means to protect ourselfs by the goverment only eventionally lead to a tyranny that is unthinkable- to think that Hitler-Germany – Stalin-Russia -just a few recent examples to remove guns were such lofty goals that lead to horrors that may have been prevented…. such silly dangous and subtly evil thoughts.
and again I hope and pray that you never experience the horror of home invasion.
and I also wish you as speedy and as full a recoveriy from your MI good day sir-dennis wathen.More stories:
