Wayne LaPierre, the execute vice-president of the NRA that thinks movies and video games are where blame should lie for mass shootings, has written an op-ed in The Daily Caller. Let’s take a look at some of it:
It has always been sensible for good citizens to own and carry firearms for lawful protection against violent criminals who prey on decent people.
During the second Obama term, however, additional threats are growing. Latin American drug gangs have invaded every city of significant size in the United States.
Ok, I hate to stop a quote mid-paragraph, but I must here. All this has happened in Obama’s second term? So in only 3 weeks, with no gun law changes or anything, drug gangs have invaded every significant city?? Wow Obama is working fast to “ghettoize” our country! But let’s continue with that paragraph, because it gets even better:
Phoenix is already one of the kidnapping capitals of the world, and though the states on the U.S./Mexico border may be the first places in the nation to suffer from cartel violence, by no means are they the last.
Now I thought more guns were the answer? Arizona is already one of the easiest states in the union to get a gun, so why so much violence there? If you ask me it sounds like old Wayne is contradicting the NRA’s argument right here.
Then Wayne goes even more off the wagon:
When the next terrorist attack comes, the Obama administration won’t accept responsibility. Instead, it will do what it does every time: blame a scapegoat and count on Obama’s “mainstream” media enablers to go along.
When the last terrorist attack came, Obama wasn’t even in the Senate. Instead George Bush and his enablers started blaming the Clinton administration.
But what is Wayne expecting here? Is he calling for armed citizens on airplanes? What if the next terrorist attack comes in the form of a suicide bomber; is he hoping someone shoots that person and blows them up?
After Hurricane Sandy, we saw the hellish world that the gun prohibitionists see as their utopia. Looters ran wild in south Brooklyn. There was no food, water or electricity. And if you wanted to walk several miles to get supplies, you better get back before dark, or you might not get home at all.
You know when else we saw this? It was during Hurricane Katrina and it happened in one of the states with the most guns! Funny how Wayne doesn’t mention that.
I only covered half of page 1 of 3 of Wayne’s editorial and can’t go any further. Actually it’s really scary. Reading it, you see that one of the top dogs at the NRA is a mad man, who probably shouldn’t be allowed to own a firearm. If you can stomach it, then go ahead and read the rest.
