Salon: People Who Want Guns Should Be Shot First
Americans who want to possess guns should have to be shot with one first, a writer for the leftist rag Salon suggests.
“I believe that being shot should be requirement [sic] for gun ownership in America. It’s very simple,” author D. Watkins wrote on Friday.
Expanding on ammo control, commenting that “$5,000 bullets would be great,” Watkins says mass shootings would be prevented if hundreds of thousands of law abiding gun owners were shot with guns prior to purchasing them.
“You need to have gun, like taking selfies with pistols, can’t live with out it? [sic] Then take a bullet and you will be granted the right to purchase the firearm of your choice,” the author, a former drug dealer turned teacher, envisions.
“If we could successfully implement this rule, I guarantee the mass shootings will stop.”
After listing various high profile shootings, Watkins, who admits he gets his information from “watching cable news,” claims “our country isn’t responsible enough for firearms,” and says gun ownership essentially equates to slavery.
“Gun praisers are just like the people who were in favor of slavery back in the day,” he says, “the elite, lazy and ignorant who weren’t being beaten, raped or in the field doing the work, so they were perfectly okay with involuntary servitude, which is a problem and why I think gun owners need to feel more––they need a taste of the other side.”
