National Rifle Association chief Wayne La Pierre told a cheering crowd Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference that Barack Obama has been hiding his true intentions about gun-owners until he wins a second term:
“In public, he’ll remind us that he’s put off calls from his party to renew the Clinton [assault weapons] ban, he hasn’t pushed for new gun control laws … The president will offer the Second Amendment lip service and hit the campaign trail saying he’s actually been good for the Second Amendment.”La Pierre has served as Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of the NRA for 21 years. Gun-owners with good sense long ago said goodbye to the lunacy that this ever-more right-wing organization represents. The delusions presented in its leader's latest rant ought to send a lot more out the door.
“But it’s a big fat stinking lie!” the NRA leader exclaimed. “It’s all part of a massive Obama conspiracy to deceive voters and destroy the Second Amendment in our country.”
“Obama himself is no fool. So when he got elected, they concocted a scheme to stay away from the gun issue, lull gun owners to sleep and play us for fools in 2012. Well, gun owners are not fools and we are not fooled,” La Pierre declared.
