The overheated and quite frankly dangerous rhetoric coming from the left regarding the National Rifle Association is another sign of just how far that Democrats are willing to go in their scorched earth rush to destroy the Second Amendment.
It’s one thing when celebrity cranks like Michael Moore and his ilk smear millions of law-abiding American gun owners as terrorists and quite another when that same language comes from elected officials.
Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy just went there.

Via Hartford Fox affiliate FOX 61 “Gov. Malloy: ‘NRA has become a terrorist organization’”:
Governor Malloy also came out Monday and agreed with Mayor Bronin’s call, even going on to say the NRA has developed into a “terrorist organization.”
“They act quite frankly in some cases as a terrorist organization,” said Malloy. “You want to make safer guns? We will boycott your company. That’s who they are. That’s what they do.”
Malloy said the NRA is a different organization than what it used to be.
“The NRA today is a far cry from the NRA that in 1999 said that teachers shouldn’t carry weapons in schools,” said Malloy. “Or in the 90’s said we should have universal background checks. They have in essence become a terrorist organization.”
The NRA issued the following response to Malloy’s grossly irresponsible words:
“ The NRA is comprised of over five million law-abiding citizens many of whom are teachers, doctors, policeman, farmers , moms and dads residing in Connecticut. So let’s be clear Governor Malloy just called tens of thousands of his constituents terrorists.
Voters are fed up with politicians who engage in political stunts and childish name calling rather than serious policy discussions aimed at making our schools and communities safer. A perfect example is the absurd political stunt to remove NRA trainers from the permitting process in Connecticut. No organization in the world does more to promote the safe and responsible use of firearms than the NRA.
The NRA’s Basics of Pistol Shooting course is the best training available for anyone seeking to carry a concealed firearm for self-protection. Public safety isn’t improved by eliminating the NRA training and standards for Connecticut’s permit holders or by calling people who disagree with you terrorists.
NRA members love our children and want them to be safe just as much as anyone else we just disagree that punishing law-abiding citizens who want to exercise their constitutional right to self-defense is the way to achieve that goal.”
Democrats are now so completely unhinged following President Trump’s conquest of Hillary Clinton that it has become commonplace to invoke such eliminationist terms as “Nazis”, “fascists”, “white supremacists” and now “terrorists” when referring to their political foes.
Such statements only contribute to instigating an already violent segment of the left that itself is capable of pulling off mass casualty events – for example, the failed attempted massacre of the entire Republican congressional baseball team last year by a deranged Bernie Sanders supporter.
Malloy has previously been in the news for his off the chain response to Trump’s referring to Haiti as a “shithole” by flying the island’s flag over the governor’s mansion.

The state is the home of some of the nuttiest Democrats in the nation including Senators Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal.
