Larry Pratt, head of Gun Owners of America, a group so extreme that it considers the NRA to be a bunch of simpering wimps, went on Gordon Klingenschmitt’s show and said that Democrats are pushing for gun control because they’re afraid of being shot — and that’s a good thing because they should be afraid of their constituents gunning them down.
Pratt said that Democrats in general support gun control because they are socialist “control freaks” who know that if they are ever going to be able to control every aspect of the lives of America citizens, they first need to take away all of their guns.
And those guns first need to be taken away, Pratt said, because Democrats are fully aware that their efforts to exert total control will result in them getting shot.
“They clearly want to exercise power that, in their judgment, would cause enough push-back to stop them from doing what they’re doing,” Pratt said. “And I just said in a nice way that they’re afraid of getting shot and they ought to be! That’s what the Second Amendment is all about. They ought to be afraid of an armed people so that they don’t get into a situation where they would actually provoke violence.”
He apparently has no idea how sociopathic that sounds.
