Pro-Gun Wingnut Demands Execution of Texas Legislators

Imagine being so crazed about guns that you don’t think the state of Texas is right-wing enough in their open carry laws. That would be Kory Watkins, head of a county pro-gun group, who is so angry that a legislative committee delayed passing a bill he wants that he is demanding that they be executed for treason.

I’m calling for the arrest of every elected official in Texas that voted against open carry. They should be arrested, charged with treason and should face a punishment that could result in being hung from the tree of liberty.

What do you think gets their attention more after they go against the people? Some phone calls? Or actual liberty or death?

Texans, asking for our rights and waiting for them is not the right tactic.

I would submit that this is prima facie evidence that this guy shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near a gun, whether openly carried or otherwise. Extremist zealots like this are the last people we should want wandering around with weapons.

    “I’m calling for the arrest of every elected official in Texas that voted against open carry.”

    Because nothing says, “I’m a patriotic American” than opposing democracy & the right to vote.

  • Doc Bill

    This is the same Kory Watkins whose arrest record prevents him from getting a concealed handgun license.

  • Larry

    From the headline, I figured he was demanding the executing the Texas legislators, in general. That, I might be persuaded could be a reasonable idea.

  • Aspect Sign

    If you disagree with me you should be executed, they keep using that word liberty ……

    That thing has been circulating on facebook since yesterday morning, and it still has only 123 likes. And what kind of “patriot” is this character, if he couldn’t reference the required natural manure from Thomas Jefferson :

    God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. … What country before ever existed a century and half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.

    Letter to William Stephens Smith (13 November 1787), quoted in Padover’s Jefferson On Democracy.

    Perhaps there is hope.

    Man, that takes me back. I remember playing Pro-Gun Wingnut on the Sega Genesis, back in the day. Japanese games are weird.

    “Will of the people” is called a riot when exercised by a black person.

    Some phone calls? Or actual liberty or death?

    Exactly. Who could ever forget those deathless words from the greatest of all Founding Fathers, Patrick Washington, when he told everyone “You have liberty to do what I tell you to do, or else I’ll kill you?” Or something to that effect. History was never my strong suit. But, Merika!!!!!!!

    Stop putting foot in mouth, is my advice. But maybe “stop shooting self in foot” fits better for a gun nut.

  • marcus

    Hey, at least he called for “due process”! He willing to bring them to trial before they’re “hung from the tree of liberty”.

    You libruls are never satisfied!

  • Hoosier X

    Just like Nathan Hale said as he faced the electric chair at the hands of the French Isalmofascist communists:

    “The tree of liberty must be drowned by the blood of elected legislators who want fewer dead elementary school students in their state!”

  • carpenterman

    I think “murdering elected officials” comes a lot closer to the definition of treason than “not bringing a bill up for a vote”.

  • erichoug

    Funny part is it got held up by a group of law enforcement officials who weren’t happy about some of the provisions of the law. Like the fact that it specifically denied them the right to question someone walking into a day care center with a .45 strapped to their hip.

    Jeez, I own guns and I don’t want open carry to pass.

  • marcus

    @^ I figure assholes like that must be compensating for something. I wonder what it is?

  • Michael Heath

    I’m tempted to support open carry for one reason. Reasonable people will more frequently freak out when they’re in the presence of strangers openly carrying guns. That should increase the demand for results-oriented gun control laws that concedes the fact there other competing individual rights involved beyond the individual right to own and bear arms.

    We’ve seen examples like this here in Michigan when a parent goes into a public school openly carrying gun. The whole school goes on lock-down; as they should given the school’s responsibility to protect the safety of its students, employees, and guests.

    Concealed weapons provide a false sense of security, what you know can’t hurt you; uh, . . . not. Open carry exposes the threat we face far more than we realize.

  • D. C. Sessions

    I’m still waiting for the collision between “open carry” and “stand your ground:” someone is approached by an angry dude packing heat and figures that his only chance is to shoot first.

    And then, being Texas, the seven or eight other people in the immediate vicinity open up in self-defense and the wild shots take out some others and …

    @16 … runaway chain reaction?

    Others might consider it thinning the herd.

    It’s a good thing he’s a right winger because otherwise he could be arrested for this.

    Phone calls. Dead people don’t pay attention to anything.

  • anubisprime

    Well lets caution against knee jerk reaction and let’s see how this pans out…’Six gun Tex’ can be dealt with afterwards…but it might be a saving shake ‘n’ roll for Texans ….to early to call at the moment!

    The gun nuts here in Oregon are starting a recall campaign against state legislators who voted for a background check bill by claiming they are HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATORS, so the nuttiness is not confined to TX

  • magistramarla

    I (unfortunately) live in Texas and I’m married to a retired career military officer, We have had a rule in our home since we were married that there would never, ever be a gun allowed in our home. One son-in-law who is a redneck gun-lover is a bit put out about that rule, but we prefer to feel safe in our own home and to feel that any visiting grandchildren are safe from gun accidents while visiting us.

    My husband has always felt that weapons belonged safely locked in an armory on base, not in homes where children might find them.
