Gun nuts don’t want America. They want Somalia.

Gun nut cult leaders like Larry Pratt are still repeating their fantasies of Obama being shot to death, and I suspect they’re repeating them in hopes some nutcase will take them up on it.

The endless gun nut fantasy is that if elections don’t go their way or if laws are passed they don’t like, the proper response is not to win the next election or go to court, but to start shooting, start killing people, to start armed insurrection. They’re not freedom-loving at all. They’re just a bunch of wannabe third-world warlords. They don’t want America, they want Somalia.

Right Wing Watch published audio on June 4 of Pratt appearing on a far-right radio show in April to talk about a since-withdrawn proposal by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives to ban a particular type of armor-piercing ammunition. During the discussion Pratt said, “the Second Amendment was designed for people just like the president and his administration” and added that if the present government wants “to go tyrannical on us, we got something for ’em”
