NRA’s Wayne LaPierre Says ‘We Are In The Midst Of A Once-In-A-Generation Fight’
During the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) annual celebration of gun violence (and rights), otherwise known as their national convention, executive vice president Wayne LaPierre made it clear that he believes the NRA and gun owners are in a war. “We are in the midst of a once-in-a-generation fight for everything we care about,” said LaPierre. Many of us on the left label the gun crazies as one-issue voters, and with that single statement, LaPierre has confirmed it.
Apparently “everything,” as defined by gun-toting assholes, is their Second Amendment rights. Education? Health Care? Poverty? Economy? Actual civil rights like marriage equality? — Fuck all of that. Only guns matter. — Because in their warped faculty, their vacant intellect, guns are what make all other freedoms possible. Because guns were necessary in a less evolved time in the human experiment called American democracy, that means they are always necessary. Without firearms, according to gun lunatics, freedom and liberty die. “They’re coming at us with a vengeance to destroy us,” LaPierre said. “It’s up to us to get to work now with an NRA large enough and strong enough to defeat [all opponents].”
Remember, there are more guns than ever in America at the same time the number of households with guns is declining, and it’s these violence-craved maniacs, people like Wayne LaPierre, who are stockpiling these firearms.
