So, Wayne LaPierre has taken to calling his opponents what many of his opponents are calling him - crazy. In other words, he's been reduced to a high-profile school yard game of "I know you are but what am I."
Seems Wayne has run out of crap to throw at the wall - none of it will stick.
"We have people all over, millions of people, sending us 5, 10, 15, 20 dollar checks saying stand up to this guy that says that we can only have three bullets, which is what he said," LaPierre said. "Stand up to this guy that says ridiculous things like, 'The NRA wants firearms with nukes on them.' I mean it's insane the stuff he says."http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/...
It would all be so amusing if it weren't so horribly tragic:
The result is that when young men like the killers at Sandy Hook and Aurora, Colo., have a psychotic breakdown, they are far more likely to be no more than a basement gun rack, a Walmart, or Craig's List ad away from getting all the firepower they need to successfully carry out their nightmarish impulses.But to try to lighten the mood a little, here's a look Wayne's upcoming interview on 60 Minutes:
The Founding Fathers, Supreme Court, and We The People have all recognized and upheld the right of governments at all levels to limit "arms" in order to protect public safety.
It is also well-established and accepted that no rights are absolute because, at some point, absolute rights infringe on the rights of others. The individual's "right to keep and bear arms" ends when those arms are so lethal as to represent an unreasonable risk to the safety and rights of his fellow citizens; in this case, the sacred and legal right to life.
The only question left in the wake of Sandy Hook is whether the rights of 26 first-graders and educators were infringed upon by giving one person the right to legally possess a weapon that gave him the ability to kill every last one of them in less than five minutes.
Peter Houlahan is an emergency medical technician with the West Redding Fire Department, and was a first responder to the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
