Pratt: Democrats Should Be Afraid of Getting Shot

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.

    Isn’t that sedition? When will the justice department start taking action against these truly dangerous actors?

    That is exactly what happened to Gabbriele Giffords, Arizona representative.

    Pratt is being dumb here. It isn’t only Democratic politicians who get shot. Saint Reagan survived several assassination attempts including one where he was shot by some guy trying to impress Jody Foster.

    Lordy, lordy, serial killers got nothing on this douche.

    And yet it’s the liberals who are perceived as uncivil.

    More accurately, any time a liberal says anything stupid or extreme, he is portrayed as representing all liberals, everywhere and for all time. I call it the Ward Churchill Effect.

    When someone like this guy says something truly appalling, though, he is portrayed as an outlier.

    That much insanity in one YouTube clip is dangerous.

    Look, if this constant and unrelenting gun grab continues, the Democrats might actually succeed in preventing someone who shouldn’t have a gun from getting one and then firing it at someone who would really prefer to not be shot by one! And on that day, fellow Patriots, freedom dies!

    That nutcases might use violence to attack duly elected representatives is the best argument for gun control I have ever heard.

    In my interpretation*, what Larry Shatt is really saying is that if the most extreme Tea Party right-wingers don’t get what they want, they’re justified in shooting the politicians who didn’t vote the way they wanted. So whose the control freak now?

    *Not to put words in Captain Dipshit’s (Pratt’s) mouth.

    Appearing on Klingenschmitt’s show was a smart move on Larry Pratt’s part. Not only did it keep demonic hecklers off the set, but it was his only chance to appear (by comparison) as the calm voice of reason in the discussion.

    Fortunately, Klingenschmitt, being a peaceful man of gawd and all, explained to Shatt the error of trying to solve problems through violence, and told him that’s not what Jesus, the prince of peace, would ever advocate or condone, right . . ?

  • dhall

    Whoops, Pratt, not Shatt. My bad.

  • D. C. Sessions

    dhall: close enough.

    “They [Democrats] 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.

    Clearly. Why, one of them even said, “Things would be a lot easier if this country were a dictatorship — so long as I’m the dictator.”

    Oh, wait…

    As to this losers opinions — I blame nominative determinism…
