    and that the the NRA, of which I'm a long-time member, is incredibly stupid to have allowed this tone-deaf jerk to speak on behalf of gun rights...


    that said, the right of lawful citizens to own the latest developments in small-arms technology is immutable...

    the writings of the Framers leaves no question about the intent of the Second Amendment...

    and anyone who denies it is simply burying their head in the sand...

    I am neither an NRA member nor a Wayne LaPierre supporter, but what did he say or do to earn your disdain? Please be specific.

    I don't know about the OP but I can tell you why I absolutely can't stand the guy and think that he should be removed from his position immediately.


    The speech he gave after the sandy hook tragedy was bullshit. Instead of focusing on the facts which are hugely on the side of gun advocates and the fact that this is one of our basic protected rights, he went on a blame fest attempting to point the finger at anything but guns. He squandered an extremely valuable opportunity to actually make this conversation real and constructive opting, instead, to try and find another scapegoat in the medias portrayal of violence and video games. Both have essentially nothing to do with anything. Further, he makes an asinine suggestion like putting armed people in every school that I personally believe would not have stopped this instance but rather would have simply changed the venue (like shooting up a school bus stop rather than a classroom).


    The thing is that he has made himself no different than the reactionary gun grabbers by trying to blame another patsy like video games. He is part of the exact same problem and is making thing worse, not better.

    I'm also an endowment/life NRA member and I also am not a big Wayne fan. The reasons for this include:
    • His suggestions that the Feds should put armed guards in schools. While that many be a fine idea for some schools, it's a local/state issue, not the federal governments;
    • His blame of violence on movies and games. I will not attack the first amendment to defend the second; and
    • His continued reluctance to talk about the REAL reason for the 2nd amendment, which ain't about duck hunting.

    That said, I still appreciate the NRA's efforts, I just wish they had a better leader/spokesperson. I'm a much bigger fan of the 2nd Amendment foundation:
