Larry Pratt (if you’re familiar with Brit slang, you’ll know why his last name is hilariously appropriate) came right out and said it here: that the “healthy fear” of being shot will “make them behave”. Click the link, it includes a transcript and a recording of his statements.
There are words for what this wingnut is doing; threatening, coercion, and terrorism . But that’s pretty much what we expect from Gun Owners of America, a fringe group that is so loony-toony extreme, even the nutbars at the NRA are liberals by comparison. They cheerfully admit their propensity towards violence, asserting it as a “right”.
This real American gun owner has a reply to that prat Pratt: I don’t need to terrorize people to keep my right to keep and bear arms: the Second Amendment works just fine without terrorists and hucksters claiming to “speak” for me by playing the threat card. STFU, Larry, we Americans can speak for ourselves, f*** you very much.
