Des Moines Register Editorial Calls for Killing Gun Owners

The right to bear arms isn’t required only to defend us from criminals. Above all, we need it to defend us from progressive statists — such as Stalin, Hitler, Mao, and folks who publish editorials in the Des Moines Register like Donald Kaul. Sandy Hook served as a pretext for the following homicidal bile:

“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,” he wrote. Is that a threatening James Byrd reference? “And if that didn’t work, I’d adopt radical measures,” he continued.

Kaul’s solution to gun violence is the equivalent of curing a headache with a guillotine:

“Repeal the Second Amendment, the part about guns anyway. [… Gibberish confirming that he doesn’t know what the word militia means in the context of the Constitution. …] Owning a gun should be a privilege, not a right.

“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.”

In other words, kill gun owners, because they are violent. That maniacs like Kaul have a tendency to acquire political power is all the reason you need to stock up on guns and ammo.

The Des Moines Register is owned by Gannett, which also owns the loathsome Journal News. The latter has enraged patriots with its name & shame strategy of publishing the names and addresses of gun owners in northern NYC suburbs. It is aggressively pressuring Putnam County officials in an attempt to acquire still more personal information for its intimidation jihad.

    Someone needs to publish some personal info of a certain Editor in Maine!


  2. StanInTexas says:

    Liberals love to declare themselves the owners of tolerance and peace. Yet when they think they have the some amount of power; they suddenly demand that their political enemies are either imprisoned, interred, or killed outright.

    Liberalism is a mental disease!

  3. Wilberforce says:

    Like I said earlier, we Des Moines-ians have suffered this fool since the early seventies. We thought we got rid of him, but he keeps on coming back. That paper has become completely schizophrenic lately. The publish this, yet a few months ago they endorsed Romney.

    Of course, Kaul won’t be personally knocking on the doors of Des Moines patriots. No, he’d rather the statists doing his dirty work for him.

    Come and get it Baby

  5. Clingtomyguns says:

    Kaul’s fellow slimy Demonazi’s are working hard in the birthplace of “Hopey Change” to repeal the Second Amendment, at least as far as law abiding citizens:

    “Illinois Senate Democrats advanced legislation late Wednesday to restrict semiautomatic weapons and high-capacity magazines, pressing forward with new gun control measures in the waning days of the session over the objections of firearms groups.

    “There would be no exemptions and no grandfathering,” the group stated in its alert. “You would have a very short window to turn in your guns to the state police and avoid prosecution.”

    National Rifle Association lobbyist Todd Vandermyde told lawmakers the bill would restrict about 75 percent of handguns and 50 percent of long guns in circulation today. He also said it would treat law-abiding gun owners like criminals, and is in conflict with Second Amendment rights upheld by the courts.”

  7. A. Levy says:

    As we all know, the overwhelming majority of political hatred comes from the Left, as is proven (yet again) in this story.

    So why do Leftists do this, and get away with it? Well, one of the main reasons is because they control the MSM, which takes their actions and blames Conservatives. Also, it’s because as Conservatives, we see ourselves as being above this kind of behavior. We feel a need to “play by the rules and by the book“, which is rather funny, because that’s how we lost the country. Those on the Left know, and have always known, that need to “do the right thing” to be our greatest and most obvious weakness, and have become masters at playing us.

    We’ve always heard about the”right wing radicals and nuts, etc.“. Well, where are they? We’re told about them by the MSM, but rarely if ever do we see them or hear from them. Why is this important? Because, IMO, the only way to defeat the Left is to use their own tactics against them. When only one team on the field playing by the rules, the outcome is a forgone conclusion. A conclusion we saw on Nov. 6th.

    What a sight to behold: radical terroristic threats against law-abiding citizens, then begging politicians to take his freedom away. Insane.

  10. beth says:

    I think the entire editorial board at the Des Moines register are mentally unstable and are making threats to the personal well being of “the people” therefore they should not have the Constitutional Right afforded by the First Amendment. Words have meaning and are dangerous in the hands of mentally unstable humans who have the ability to drum up and encourage criminal behavior.
    Additionally, I would ask the Register why “the people” have “a right” to health insurance, gay rights, and cell phones but I don’t have the right to protect myself from unstable people advocating for my harm?
    Oh, I forgot right for thee but not for me. Silly individual that I am.

  11. Winston Smith says:

    Kaul lives in some nice $400,000+ diggs…

    I see commies like him really know how to live well. Apprently he paid $546,000 for it at the peak of the real estate bubble and now its worth $100,000 less. At least according to Zillow and its dubious numbers.

  12. Son of Taz says:

    Seems Gannett has declared war on some members of the citizenry. OK, well, let’s declare war on their crap media business.

    Here’s a list of Gannett’s media properties in the US.The link is to Wikipedia, so the accuracy is not guaranteed, but it should be easy enough to verify. If time permits, this weekend maybe I’ll put together a video of Gannett newspapers burning, USA Today for example.

    I also plan to spend some time developing a list of advertisers in Gannett media and suggest others do the same. Write or call the advertiser and tell them why they should stop advertising in Gannett media.

    There’s a lot of hand-wringing on Moonbattery and other sites; well, it’s time to stop the hand-wringing and take some “affirmative action.”

  13. Bloodless Coup says:

    This idiot really believes that when the sh?t hits the fan we are going to wait for him to come looking for us. People will be standing on line for a piece of him.

  14. Winston Smith says:

    Kaul lives on Asa Gray Dr. Asa Gray was an atheist Darwinian type – an early Progressive type. Im sure Kaul chose that sreet on purpose. At least hes consistent.

  15. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    Son of Taz
    The local Gannett owned (rat nest construction material) likes to suddenly send out a week’s worth of liberal propaganda, then bill you ostensibly for a subscription.
    Another trick is to give away free copies at gas stations for a while.
    I believe they do this to boost circulation totals.

  16. OldmanRick says:

    Liberal is nothing more than a PC term for marxist, socialist, and/or fascist.

  19. Kevin R. says:

    The Left isn’t against mass murder, they are against other people choosing the victims.

  20. Alan says:

    More people die each year from hammers than from guns therefore I think we should make hammers illegal. All of them. And label carpenters as terrorist.

  21. Laurie says:

    “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,” he wrote. Is that a threatening James Byrd reference? “And if that didn’t work, I’d adopt radical measures,” he continued.”

    That sounds like a threat to me! Hey Donald Kaul of the Des Moines Register: your tendency to use violence to solve your problems worries me. If you come anywhere near me I’m going to assume you’re violent. You’ll get one verbal warning from me. If you don’t turn and leave I’ll assume you’re a threat to my person (based on your outbursts about violence) and I’ll take appropriate action to neutralize the threat.

  22. Laurie says:

    @bloodless coup said: “This idiot really believes that when the sh?t hits the fan we are going to wait for him to come looking for us. People will be standing on line for a piece of him.”

    Good point, and absolutely right. These loud-mouth liberals don’t realize that all they’re doing is painting targets on themselves. When anarchy comes to America, they’ll be the first to go.

  23. Someone whom RESPECTS others but not Donald says:

    Donald Kaul, let’s only hope two things:

    1. There is a HELL..and you are going there for your words of terror and hate toward human beings.

    2. You have NO protection in your home and those that are criminals as they do EVERYDAY break into your home and beat you and your family as they do the rest of us.

    You are sick and I hope you are punished accordingly. May KARMA and FATE take you out as you wish.

  24. Newsmen and Crisis Actors scaring America with DHS ExPlan play drills for political agendas are terrorists. They fit the textbook definition and merit fine Gitmo hospitality. By all means, let us declare America’s homegrown terrorists.

  25. Banderman says:

    Liberals are clearly insane. They call for ‘death’ and ‘killing’ in the name of ‘peace’. That’s nuts for sure.

  26. Bri says:

    Wow. This guy/editor is nuts.

  27. Baron of Gray Matter says:

    If liberals were against abortion they would advocate killing fertile women to make their point.

  28. f8te says:

    Don’t these people realize they are cutting their own throats publishing shit like this? I mean what does this idiot think is going to happen to him once the SHTF? We’re just going to forget these words? Hubris does not make you smart bub.

  29. Jim says:

    My, what a list of fools. Every word read in these comments represent a serious case of mental illness brought on by ignorance and social programming based on fear. What are you people afraid of?

    If you weren’t such violent people just looking some place to release your bile you might be able to see that the world is changing.

    You need to release your fear and join the rest of the world in creating a new and better future for all of us. Gun control is a necessary part of building a bright new future. However, control is not enough. We need to completely eliminate guns from our existence along with all the war machines, both physical and mental.

    Anyone clinging to their guns in fear of the rest of society needs to get some serious deprogramming done. Although Sandy Hook was probably a psyop false flag, it does indicate to the rest of us what the gun toting mentality eventually results in.

    Even now, right here in these comments you can see the same thing at work among all these posters with their violent speech and intent desire to bring harm to others.

    That’s why we need serious gun control. It’s not about responsible gun owners (why do you own them?) it’s about the kooks and veterans who’s only desire is to continue to bring harm and horror to others.

    Liberals? Are you just stupid or is that your way of justifying murder so you can continue to own and use your guns? That ought to teach those stupid liberal children huh?

  30. whotothewhat says:

    Can we just start the civil war already. The goal of the left is total disarmament of law abiding citizens in order to control all action thought and movement of people.. It is not about peace and harmony but control (Period) OK lefties you have your GREAT OBAMA in office and perhaps if given YOUR WAY a socialist dynasty that will be the death of this once great country. But screw you I will not play your game. I will resist anyway I can for as long as I can I will play your mind games and beat you with them. I will stab you in the back any chance I get and undermine anything you do.

  31. Jim says:

    This once great country died in 1916 when our surrender was signed by Woodrow Wilson and everyone became debt slaves.

  32. grayjohn says:

    what’s a newspaper?

  33. Moe Hammed says:

    What we are seeing here is the true feelings of the left. Much of the time they hide these, but the last election has given them the confidence to let down their guard and show their true selves.

    I hope that we all will remember this as time goes on.

  34. Frank Mahan says:

    Liberalism is a failed idiology,no better than fascism, socialism, naziism or communism. It’s all about totalitarian control over EVERYONE. No one permitted to ask the wrong questions, or depart from liberally mandated “thinking.”

  35. Jeff says:

    Mr. Donald Kaul
    I personally invite you to personally come take my guns from me. Mano e mano? Let me know when to schedule your appointment.

  36. kozmo says:

    The irony is too much to bear. This unarmed dolt wants to kill gun owners? Hmmmmmm… I doubt that would work out well for him.

  37. KMD says:

    There should be a petition to have this editor ‘Donald Kaul’ deported, like Piers Morgan.

  41. Hytec says:

    Didn’t take long for the paid shill to show up did it? Situational awareness folks, it’s key to surviving any situation. It doesn’t matter if it is escorting your family across a dimmly lit parking lot, or scrolling through the condesending dimmly lit keyboard commandos. If these folks want to take our guns, there is a process in place to do it and it requires amending the Constitution. That process includes the ratification of 37 states to sign on. Any other process is a suicide mission for those stupid enough to sign on to it. They know it and we know it. Stay vigilant, keen to your environment, and above all keep the rifle close and the powder dry.

  42. Hytec says:

    …and I hear this one a lot whenever the gun toting issue comes up. “why do yo carry a gun? Are you paranoid?” To which I reply, “What do I have to paranoid about? I CARRY A GUN! Play the victim if you want. To me and other like minded folks know that the 2nd Amendment give all the others teeth.

    Ben Franklin said it best: “Demoracy is 2 wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well armed sheep contesting the vote.”

  43. Aravoth says:

    Kaul is an idiot. Perhaps he should have himself tied to the back of a Chevy pickup and dragged around. The outcome could be death, the same as if he had shot himself in the head. Next thing you know, Kaul would have baseball bats, sling shots, bows and arrows, pellet guns, BB guns, knifes,forks, credit cards so people can’t slit their wrists or throats with them.
    Read the Milita Act (Dick Act) 1903. Kaul can stick that in his pipe and choke on it. Past history shows that when people are disarmed, they get slaughtered by the governments that disarms them, and that’s the agenda of the United Nations so we people can be their sheep going to the slaughter for their New World Order.

  44. Hoser says:

    Death to the Des Moines Register!!!

  45. f8te says:

    Um, excuse me pious Jim, but we are responding to the violent threats leveled against us by your bolshevik writer friend.

    The hypocrisy of the left is mind blowing.

    That chicken s**t coward communist traitor subhuman should lead the charge on those who will not give up their gun. Put you money where your mouth is mister! No, it wants others to do its bidding!

  49. Yama Bushi says:

    Ever notice how the communist traitors get away with printing what would get the real humans arrested?

  50. Yama Bushi says:

    If that Kaul thing ever tries to tie me to a pickup, I will be in fear for my life and I will defend myself appropriately based on that legitimate fear for my life. In fact, if Kaul ever confronts anyone in real life, his words are on record in print. The person would legitimately fear for his life and could legally take appropriate action, I would imagine.

  51. Oddball says:

    To Jim:
    Wow, how truly insightful dude. I’m all on for the hippie love sh#t, positive waves baby and all that, but I think you may have missed the point ( as you are so well paid to do).

    Please Sir, peddle your wares somewhere else. No one’s buying today, not tomorrow nor the next. These Gentleman Respondents herein are quite far and beyond your aenemic efforts to divide, dissuade, or otherwise alter and divert the topic and tone of a discussion. Liberty will be restored, and following that, you and those of your ilk ( Mr. Kaul and Co )will no longer be welcome on this Continent.

  52. Ohyeah!? says:

    The very fact that these types spew forth such threats tells exactly how much they live in “terror” of legal gun owners. Obviously, you have nothing to fear or you wouldn’t spew vile threats at those who have “tools of death” at their immediate disposal. You’ve made no case, Kaul, unless you were trying to demonstrate how irrational and pseudointelectual your position is. Btw, traitors such as yourself are always the first to be purged once the mass murdering of defenseless citizens begins. It would be priceless to see the surprised look on your face in such advent, but in the meantime, we patriots will keep our guns so we can protect you and your right to be such a douchbag.

  53. dsuitryteyty says:

    cool story, bro. That’s it. we totally need to give up our guns and put in a tough licensing system, just like Mexico.

    That way when the people want to own guns to defend themselves from criminals and the corrupt government, they won’t be able to. It’s the perfect plan! Just look at Mexico. It’s working perfectly. The citizens are helpless slaves now, getting picked apart by government, criminals, and big business.

    the writer of this article should go eat a bullet, for science.

  54. R. Johnson says:

    On some sites some people were wondering if turn-about is fair play. Since the government collects all of this data on us, what if we collected the data on them. A central web site where the “elected” have their names, addresses, phone numbers, pictures etc…. It can be done.. just saying.. our newly elected rep no longer lists his home phone/address in the phone book..but… the old phone book from a couple of years ago still has it…. If people in the home towns of these clowns would look around, I would imagine that we could get quite a collection of information. Let them see how it feels to be the one under the microscope.

  55. […] and moonbat editorial writers from the Des Moines Register, who suggest death to gun owners. Moonbattery has more… Sandy Hook served as a pretext for the following homicidal […]
