I was about to post a video of an intense discussion(links at bottom) between Piers Morgan and Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America, when over the radio, I heard the much heralded press event from the NRA by Wayne LaPierre.
It really has to be seen to be appreciated, but here’s a couple quotes:
Immediately following a disruption which the media were all too eager to photograph, he says (continuing with his speech apparently uninterruptedly, not responding to the heckling reporter asking a question):
Rather than face their own moral failings,
the media demonize lawful gun owners, amplify their cries for more laws and fill the national debate with misinformation and dishonest thinking that only delay meaningful action and all but guarantee that the next atrocity is only a news cycle away.
Later he says:
Is the press and political class here in Washington so consumed by fear and hatred of the NRA and America’s gun owners that you’re willing to accept a world where real resistance to evil monsters is a lone, unarmed school principal left to surrender her life to shield the children in her care? No one — regardless of personal political prejudice — has the right to impose that sacrifice.
There’s so much more, video is here:
If you fear being persuaded by charismatic common sense, you can read it all here:
