Crazy Salon Writer Who Wanted Gun Owners Shot Wrote That He Possessed Guns

A few days ago, unhinged Leftist gun control advocate D. Watkins published, at the always unhinged Salon, an article with this headline and subhead

Want a gun? Take a bullet: Take this, gutless NRA cowards — you can have a gun, once you understand the pain of being shot
Gun control doesn’t go far enough. If you want license to carry a weapon, you should know the pain of getting hit

Via Bob Owens, we get this article from David Cole at Black Man With A Gun

Lesson learned: Never underestimate the hypocrisy of an anti-gun rights bigot.

Literally minutes after I finished writing my previous post, I decided to read up a little more on Mr. D. Watkins. Sorting through his previous writings at, I came upon a wonderful essay from last July entitled, “Gunplay Is All I Know.”  (Though in the photo, it appears he knows little of gun safety.)

I encourage you to read the article in full, so that you can get a true appreciation for the supernova of hypocrisy that is D. Watkins. I’ll just give you a couple of bullet points…er, highlights.

First of all, if Watkins’ tale is to believed, he is a criminal. In the article, he admits to owning two firearms, despite stating that he lives in Baltimore, Maryland, under some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation:

“I’m not a gangster and could not care less about weapon shows or trips to a shooting range, but I have two guns.”

Nowhere in the article does he mention obtaining the state-mandated permit to purchase his handguns. That’s a crime. He also does not mention registering the guns with the state…that’s another crime. I saw nothing about his obtaining a license to own a handgun, as Maryland requires. Crime. And he also doesn’t mention getting a permit to carry, although to be fair, he does not specifically say that he carries his guns outside his home. But it is apparent that Watkins’ gun ownership is illegal and he knows it, as the article’s subtitle reads, “I’d rather be caught with a gun than without one.”

There’s more to it, make sure to hit the link for the rest.

As Bob Owens notes, Watkins deserves to shoot himself twice for those guns, per his own article. Further, he should be in jail, per the law. One Mr. Cole notes “As it turns out, he understands very well why an individual citizen might want to exercise the right to keep and bear arms, and does so himself (albeit illegally).” In essense, to protect oneself from violent criminals. Democrats are all for gun control, but said gun control would only effect law abiding citizens, rather than the criminals.
