arma virumque cano (et alia)
He didn't say anything kooky. He made a prediction, one that makes a lot of sense, given Obama's general attitude toward guns and the likelihood that he'll nominate at least two justices to the Supreme Court if he has a second term.
You may be right, Greg. But, by disseminating such fear and panic, La Pierre is lining his pockets with gold. He's a carny hustler and you're the mark.
Mikeb, are you claiming that if Obama wins a second term, he will do nothing to increase gun control?
Although La Pierre is spouting manipulative crap, I think he may be right. I doubt he's prepared for what's actually coming. In Obama's second term I think gun control laws are going to swing back the other way, but that's not the same as "crushing the 2A" or "coming for your guns." That's where Wayne goes beyond the line of reason.
You're sure that Obama will get a second term? That's not so clear. But do try to explain how La Pierre is lining his pockets while spouting crap, while the president of the Brady Bunch is a noble advocate for a good cause. Are you aware that many on our side see gun control activist groups as a way to provide jobs to people who are otherwise useless? This is especially the case when we compare membership numbers of the various groups on each side.Still, gun control is dead on arrival in Congress and in most state legislatures. Giving Obama a second term will cause permanent damage on the Supreme Court, but there are things that the Senate can do to mitigate that as well.
Well for one thing, La Pierre earns about 5 or 6 times more.
You blame him for being successful? You're not claiming that the only way to get a high salary is to be a crook, are you? I see it as La Pierre gets paid for doing what we want him to do.
I think of him as a shill for the gun manufacturers and you guys are his dupes. You're all building up to another wasted effort to defeat Obama. In the end, gun sellers are richer, La Pierre is richer, and you little members paid for it all.
Do you send money to the Brady Bunch? The same can be said about that organization and its members.
