What’s that phrase? “damned if you do, damned if you don’t”? It seems that that saying describes NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre’s speech at the CPAC confrence in Florida perfectly. LaPierre had the following to say about the President:
“[The Obama campaign] will say gun owners — they’ll say they left them alone,” LaPierre told an audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference. “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.”
“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.”
Despite the fact that the Obama Administration has actually expanded gun rights and has been criticized by his supporters for his inaction on the issue, conspiracies abound. Check out the baseless speech by LaPierre below via Youtube user “addmorejuice”.
