Joyce Carol Oates: If enough NRA members get shot, 'maybe hope for legislation of firearms?'

Another set of tweets to add to the gallery of ghouls, courtesy of bestselling author Joyce Carol Oates.

Like many of her fellow gun-grabbers, Oates wasted no time on prayer and grieving after news of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre devastated Newtown, Conn., and the nation. She was too busy turning the blood of innocents into warpaint for her battle against the NRA.

Her first idea? Publicizing the names and images of “politicians in thrall to the NRA” as guilty of “felony homicide.”

But Oates wasn’t done co-appropriating the tragedy for her left-wing agenda. In keeping with President Obama’s “new era of civility,” she seized on a possible strategy to force through gun control legislation: violence against NRA members.

That’s right. Oates is pinning her Constitution-stomping hopes and dreams on “sizable numbers of NRA members” getting shot. And she certainly wouldn’t be the first anti-gun zealot endorsing or wishing for violence against those who treasure their Second Amendment rights:

But Oates questions whether others are making the nation less “civilized” than it could be by clinging bitterly to their rights.

Good news, Mayor Bloomberg: She’s on your team!

    What a strange “civilized” country where it is considered a brave act to suggest the mass-murder of those people with whom you hold opposing views.

      My goodness .. the violence that is supported by the “anti-gun” morons is amazing … where is that good old Obama civility .. oh that’s right it is only for silencing law abiding citizens on the right.

    I guess we can add Joyce Carol Oates to the list of volunteers who’ll be disarming Chicago’s gang bangers. I hope she’s more persuasive in person than she is when she tweets.

      If I recall aright, this dates back to the Carter years, when all the crazies were de-institutionalized, put out on the street, and the Collaborationist Media suddenly discovered a “homelessness crisis” for Reagan to be blamed for.

    Joyce Carol Oates is still alive? Well, Mazel!
    Now read a book on the Constitution and Bill of Rights — and one on guns wouldn’t hurt either — I swear if I see one more person calling for a ban on “assault” weapons pretending like they know what they’re talking about I’m going to scream.

  • DrKeteDC

    Her books are as insipid as her opinions. But, perhaps less dangerous.

  • Jack Deth

    Geeeee….

    That Joyce Carol Oates sure is smart!

    Is she aware that she trolling around “Accessory Before the Act” territory, should someone act on her suggestion?

    And could be found just as liable by a crusading District Attorney?

  • stuckinIL4now

    What a strange UN-civilized individual it is who advocates the shooting of certain people as a solution to ending senseless violence. Classic libturd logic–totally crackers and unexplainable.

  • Lord Foggybottom

    If ‘enough’ NRA members get shot, then more people will buy guns to protect themselves from nutjobs like Joyce Carol Oates. Unintended consequences, and all that…

  • LyleLovett666

    I guess she’s not fully aware of what we,NRA members,are all about.Good luck on the mass shooting of NRA members.We are ready for such things.

  • Fire and Adjust!

    That makes sense, lets eliminate gun crimes by advocating gun crimes against people with guns…………………. makes about as much sense as advocating for better economic prosperity by driving ourselves into more debt.

    If the NRA wields such political power, how did we end up with Obumbles for a 2nd term? If they’re so opposed to guns, why not attack Obama and the Dems who controlled the Senate and the House in 2009 and 2010 and didn’t do anything?

    • Frustrated Teacher

      She is an idiot who misses one important point. NRA members are the LEAST likely to be the victims of gun violence because the are the MOST likely to be able to defend themselves against criminals. The reason? They are armed! Ms Oates is MUCH more likely to be victimized…but she wants all the rest of us in her vulnerable boat!! ONE well placed gun in the office at Sandyhook could have averted the killings. Those who disagree with this completely obvious point have an agenda….

    I can’t help but laugh at libs (who don’t like guns), who want to shoot all NRA members,(who are most-likely armed). Kind of defies logic.

  • AlecJ

    Ladies like this moron are all mouth and ZERO brain cells. If you sat her down with the facts about gun laws and made her read them out loud 100 times, she would still say that gun control is necessary.

    Ive started calling liberals the “Walking Dead” because they are zombies without anything but basic motor functions and the ability to make some idiotic moaning sounds….

  • LordElrond09

    It’s funny how closely libs sound like radical islam. “Behead those who insult Islam” “Murder anyone who thinks teachers should be armed”. Hard to tell the difference between those two.

    • mdtljt

      Excellent observation…

  • Chris Hopson

    Dear Joyce. NRA members aren’t very likely to get shot as they have the ability to protect themselves. Perhaps if more people understood this, they would understand how gun free zones are so dangerous.

    It makes me sad when someone who is regarded as being intelligent and literate can spew this kind of ignorant, mindless, insensitive drivel out of their filthy sewer of a mouth. Had anyone other than a member of the left said this, people would be calling for arrests and there would be SEIU led riots. But, its just conservatives, so…nothing to see here.

    (And for the record, Joyce, Bloomberg is just as much of an idiot as you.)

    We don’t become victims, kinda the point of it all, ya know?

    It would be nice if one of these anti-gun assholes, who keep calling for the death of NRA members would be prosecuted for communication of threats.

  • John Pugh

    I saw another jackass tweet from you…

    “Mass-murderers are also cowards & never risk confronting others armed like themselves–McVeigh, the Columbine killers, etc.”

    Cowards? before I comment, don’t misconstrue my remarks to mean that I support or condone in any way, shape, manner or form…these human abberations should all be killed and ground up for pig slop, without hesitation.

    You leftists always love to throw around the word “coward” when discussing anything or anyone you don’t agree with, abhor or generally dislike. Let me tell you something, Tim McVeigh was a decorated (Bronze Star) veteran of the first Gulf war. He had no fear of anything or anybody (even of wearing “White Power” tee shirts around Army Posts filled with Black soldiers). The boys who killed at Columbine, VA Tech, Aurora and other locations over the past few decades did so because they, like McVeigh, were mentally disturbed. They did not know, or care what may have confronted them when they set out. They are deranged lunatics for sure, but cowards? No.

    Here is a coward. Nidal Malik Hasan who knowingly went into a workplace (his) that would not be a threat to him because, hold on to your bloomers, GUNS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON POST! AND HE KNEW THAT! (Unless you are an MP or on Alert). This man is not only a “coward”, but a LEFTIST anti-American nut job!

    How about some meaningful dialog from you and your kind? According to your Bio you are supposed to be a very respected, educated and learned individual. Is that not true? Are we being duped?

    If this is not an ‘incitement to violence,’ I don’t know what is. We are responsible for our words, and especially writers, who know how to use them. Any prosecution would probably be initiated by a (NRA) citizen’s written complaint to the police regarding her post. She does not represent all writers, even if she thinks she does.

  • Dave Wiezorek

    There is no minimum age for NRA members. So tell us Oates do you want NRA members that are children shot as well?

  • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/VUNDCSYRNKQHB55O5LA6M36RYY Henry

    The disconnect of the liberal mentality is that it is incapable of considering, even for a moment, that there might be a logical REASON why NRA members are not (and will not be) the victims of these atrocities.

  • Wyrdless

    Maybe if enough NRA members shot criminals there would be hope for liberals to support gun rights

    Also “”… maybe hope for legislation of firearms?— “”
    What does that mean?
