Why Are Gun Sales Skyrocketing?

Because of progressives writing columns like this -- and newspapers like the Des Moines Register thinking that this is appropriate to publish:

• Declare the NRA a terrorist organization and make membership illegal. Hey! We did it to the Communist Party, and the NRA has led to the deaths of more of us than American Commies ever did. (I would also raze the organization’s headquarters, clear the rubble and salt the earth, but that’s optional.) 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.
• Then 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.
There is a strong fascist aspect to modern progressive thinking.  There is a reason why so many Americans are heavily armed -- they know how strong the totalitarian murderous thug component is among the media elite.

What makes me think that he expects someone else to go up against the pissed off gun owners, rather than doing it himself?

Clayton, you're comment box does not allow editing. Eg, I can't type something, then move the cursor back, and add a few letters. At least that happens on my iPad. I couldn't put a question mark at the end of "did you see this"

I think that may be iPad specific. The article about giving up on the Constitution really shows how desperate the progressive left is. If they really wanted democracy, instead of a constitutionally limited republic, then they would have to give up abortion rights, legal homosexuality, many of the welfare rights that the more liberal courts found, Miranda rights, and many other due process guarantees.

I find it amusing that the Progressive in question believes such ridiculous myths.

It was never illegal to be a member of the Communist Party, as far as I can tell.

(Nor was it "declared a terrorist organization", to my knowledge, if only because the designation didn't exist then.

On the other hand, exactly unlike the NRA, the CPUSA was definitionally devoted to the revolutionary overthrow of the US government in favor of a dictatorship "of the proletariat". That's the entire point of a Communist party, after all, especially one funded by Moscow.

The idea of the NRA even contemplating something like that is utterly laughable for anyone outside of a Progressive fever-dream.)

I guess he also doesn't know that you can't require gun registration by criminals (Haynes v. US, 1968), and thus all "registration" can ever do is let you round up the law-abiding.

Yeah, it sure makes me wonder why "we" think "they" are out to "get us"....
