Head of gun organization, former NRA lobbyist: "The next election is the time to hunt Democrats.”

Remember that graphic, Sarah Palin's "hit list" from 2010, back when she was targeting House Democrats and used gun sight icons to make the point? That was pretty appalling and she got a lot of blowback for it. You might even say she was caught in the cross hairs:

So should former NRA lobbyist and founder of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners Dudley Brown be for his remarks. Think Progress is reporting on his interview with NPR, during which he said this:

Brown complains universal background checks are just a step towards identifying gun owners so the government can seize their weapons, and he calls the 15-bullet limit on ammunition clips arbitrary. He’s promising political payback in next year’s election that could cost Colorado Democrats their majorities.

“I liken it to the proverbial hunting season,” Brown says. “We tell gun owners, there’s a time to hunt deer. And the next election is the time to hunt Democrats.”

Not the best time to put that out there, Dudley, considering Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) was threatened after introducing gun legislation: “They said they were going to kill me.”

Between the continuing Republican references to "hunting Democrats" and their bizarre obsession with "illegitimate and legitimate" rape-- a crime of violence-- one might conclude that many of those on the right are becoming even more unhinged.

And just as they're making all that noise about their "new and improved" party image.

Timing is everything.

    And they tell us they need their guns to protect us from the government the American people elected. Indeed, I now do believe that the Brown's and LaPierre's should not only have background checks but also mental stability checks.

    He should go to one of those 'private' prisons where they treat folks so well. If you or I said this publicly we would be hauled off and maybe 'disappeared'.

  • Brown should be arrested for making life threatening remarks. Since his crime is politically motivated and people could get hurt, he could also be arrested for being a domestic terrorist.

    When the NRA says, "we need to keep guns out of the hands of mentally disturbed persons" . . . he's referring to themselves.
