Now He’s Resorting to Lies
Because it was on FOX Sunday morning, I’m not surprised to hear a lie, but I thought the CEO for the lobby representing the gun manufacturers and gun sellers, otherwise known as the NRA, could do better.
This was Wayne La Pierre’s comment: “During the campaign, when [Obama] said to people, ‘I will not take away your rifle, shotgun, handgun,'” LaPierre said. “They leafleted the country with flyers like this, ‘Obama’s not gonna take your gun,’ ‘Obama will protect gun rights.’ And now he’s trying to take away all three.”
The President has never said a single word about removing rifles, shotguns, or handguns from American citizens. Personally, I would love to see handguns removed. They are too easy to conceal, and are the cause of death of far too many innocents. Example, a bus driver is shot 4 times, and a child abducted. Early yesterday morning, a man in Tennessee killed his wife, two children, and then committed suicide.
Mr. La Pierre, is not mistaken when he said Mr. Obama will remove these three weapons, he is lying to provoke even more response from this emotional issue.
This should not be an issue based on emotion, it should be based on the safety of individuals to go about their daily lives and feel safe. No one needs an assault rifle or high capacity clips.
I suppose, as usual, I’m just using something La Pierre and Republicans who support him don’t understand. The word is “logic”.
