Dudley Brown, executive director of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners and executive vice president of the National Association for Gun Rights, recently said that he was looking forward to November’s “hunting season” because it will be “time to hunt Democrats” (audio below).
During a Wednesday interview with NPR, Brown was describing how gun owners would retaliate against Democrats who supported President Obama’s proposal for universal background checks, which even the NRA once supported.
Brown left the NRA in the 1990s because he claimed the NRA was “kissing up to politicians.” The NRA once said the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners was an “extreme right gun group” and that Brown was the “Al Sharpton of the gun movement,” reported HighBeam.com.
“I liken it to the proverbial hunting season,” Brown told NPR. “We tell gun owners, ‘There’s a time to hunt deer. And the next election is the time to hunt Democrats.’”
“This is a very Western state with traditional Western values. And citizens had to have firearms for self-defense, and right now that’s still the case.”
Brown also claimed that universal background checks were just a step towards identifying gun owners so the U.S. government can seize their weapons, but failed to present any proof of this claim.
