The NRA has so far been successfully battling the expansion of background checks on all weapons sales in spite of the fact that 85 percent of the American public support them.
Of course this may have coincided with the disappearance of Wayne LaPierre who made a comeback yesterday.
And what was LaPierre agitated about this time?
The head of the National Rifle Association (NRA) slammed New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I) on Sunday, accusing him of trying to “buy America” by spending $12 million on a massive advertising campaign advocating for stricter gun laws.
“He’s going to find out this is a country of the people, by the people, and for the people,” said NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
Okay, first of all, the fact that ANY gun control interest is spending money against the NRA is itself news.
Second, “He’s going to find out this is a country of the people, by the people, and for the people“?
Uh, about that first sentence of this post?
