After listening to Wayne LaPierre’s thoughful remarks to advance the respectful discussion of the role of guns in our society . . .
Nope, I just can’t do it.
I wanted to try not to laugh at LaPierre’s comments, but that’s not possible, not even with a 24 hour waiting period. Watching him speak yesterday, I alternated between laughter and tears, as I witnessed a sad spectacle of a man so blind to the real world, so callous as to want to exploit tragedy for commercial gain, or both.
By the end, LaPierre showed us all that he lives in a world filled with demons, and the only thing we can do is adopt the new motto of the NRA: Ready, Shoot, Aim.
