LaPierre: “This is a country of the people, by the people, and for the people.”
Wayne LaPierre was on one of the Sunday talking-head shows and he minced no words when it came to the mental-midget dictator of New York and his demands for gun control. LaPierre also took no guff from the leftist-loon talking-head David Gregory from Meet the Press who conducted the interviews with both Bloomberg and LaPierre. – LaPierre let ’em have it with both barrels!
Here’s what happened…the first report can be read in full here:
NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre lashed out at a wide range of the political opinions held by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg on NBC’s Meet The Press this morning. LaPierre told host David Gregory that he thinks Bloomberg is ‘reckless’ and that he won’t beat the NRA because of its grassroots support.
“He’s going to find out this is a country of the people, by the people, and for the people. And he can’t spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the American public. They don’t want him in their restaurants, they don’t want him in their homes, they don’t want him telling what food to eat, they sure don’t want him telling what self-defense firearms to own and he can’t buy America,” said LaPierre.
Bloomberg announced last night that he will spend $12 million of his fortune to run anti-gun ads around the country. LaPierre told Gregory that the NRA is not intimidated by these plans because of their vast grassroots and small donor support from around the country. “We have people all over, millions of people, sending us 5, 10, 15, 20 dollar checks telling us to stand up to this guy that says that we can only have three bullets, which is what he said. Stand up to this guy that says ridiculous things like, ‘The NRA wants firearms with nukes on them.’ I mean it’s insane the stuff he says,” LaPierre said.
Gregory challenged LaPierre on his position on background checks, citing a poll that shows over 85 percent of gun owners support them. LaPierre dismissed the suggestion that he is out of step with gun owners by opposing them, calling the thinking surround the legislation “a dishonest premise.”
“Criminals aren’t going to be checked. They’re not going to do this. The shooters in Tucson, Aurora, Newtown, they’re not going to be checked. They’re unrecognizable,” he said noting that the NRA supports the current instant background check system that is in place.
“It’s a speedbump for the law abiding. It slows down the law abiding and does nothing to anybody else,” he said.

Here’s another clip and write-up about this issue, it’s qood one friends! – You can catch this here:
National Rifle Association head Wayne LaPierre on Sunday ripped the national media for not reporting that Chicago, suffering from an epidemic of gun violence, ranks “dead last” in enforcement of federal gun laws.
“Let me hold up a mirror right now to the whole national news media and the White House,” LaPierre said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Citing new 2012 data from Syracuse University, LaPierre said that out of 90 jurisdictions, Chicago ranks last.
“Why doesn’t NBC News start with ‘shocking news on Chicago, of all the jurisdictions in the country, Chicago is dead last in the enforcement of federal gun laws’?” he demanded. “Why don’t the national press corps, when they’re sitting down there with Jay Carney and the president and the vice president, why don’t they say, ‘Why is Chicago dead last in enforcement of the gun laws against gangs with guns, felons with guns, drugs dealers with guns?’”
NBC host David Gregory didn’t respond to LaPierre’s charge, instead asking only whether he and the NRA “support those as felonies.”
“Absolutely and we want them taken off the street,” LaPierre said. “If you’re the president and the vice president and the attorney general and your job is to enforce these laws against the — I’m talking about drug dealers, gangs and felons that are walking around with guns in the street — and you don’t do it, you bear some responsibility.”
Last but not least…there’s this. Bloomberg: Lawmakers Who Vote Against Gun Control Will ‘Pay a Price’
Coming off the announcement that he’s putting $12 million into a national ad campaign for more gun control, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said lawmakers who vote against stricter gun measures will “pay a price.”
“I think I have a responsibility, and I think you and all of your viewers have responsibilities, to try to make this country safer for our families and for each other,” Bloomberg (I) said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “If I can do that by spending some money and taking the NRA from being the only voice to being one of the voices, so the public can really understand the issues, then I think my money would be well spent and I think I have an obligation to do that.”
Bloomberg’s ads will run in 13 states with residents deemed divided on the issue of gun control.
“If 90 percent of the public wants something and their representatives vote against that, common sense says they are going to have a price to pay for that,” Bloomberg said.
Please take a minute and check this out…if you scroll down towards the bottom of the piece this will include information about the Senate and Harry Reid’s intentions etc. – NRA CEO LaPierre to Bloomberg: ‘You Can’t Buy America‘
Now Dudes and dudettes, Bloomberg says we should call our senators and support him and his ads…I think it would be a very good idea if we did make some calls…in a big way. Start with McRINO and anyone else you think needs hearing from you, especially some of them mentioned in the article below. Some senators are wavering, some are not…but those mentioned are republicans, with McRINO leading the way on this issue…again! (For some of you that may not know, McRINO led the way years ago in the senate going after the gun-shows and the so-called loop-hole BS, he’s never let loose of this issue, simply because he’s lost time and again.) He must be stopped! – Unless you agree with McRINO and ilk…then that’s a different story.
There’s more that I would add to this from a personal perspective about McRINO and the NRA that has aggravated the heck out of this household in the past…but that’s another issue in the big picture of things.
So, folks…what say you about all of the above? – Fire Away…Inquiring Minds Want to Know!
