National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre claims that Jovan Belcher‘s girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, would be alive today if she only had had her own gun.There are many examples of this, perhaps the best is Meleanie Hain. The obvious lesson from this is that battered women need to remove themselves from the threat. Having a gun is rarely good enough.
LaPierre is dead wrong: there were eight guns in the Belcher-Perkins house. So much for NRA bull.
“The one thing missing in that equation is that woman owning a gun so she could have saved her life from that murderer,” LaPierre told USA TODAY Sports, talking about Kasandra Perkins and Jovan Belcher.
“According to Kansas City police, Belcher owned multiple guns, and they were in the house,” USA TODAY reports.
“In addition, Sports Illustrated has reported that Perkins went to shooting ranges with Belcher.”
Jack Dickey at Deadspin writes, “Jovan Belcher and Kasandra Perkins kept ‘about eight guns’ in their house and liked to go shooting together, according to a new report from Sports Illustrated.”
So, Wayne LaPierre and the NRA are full of it.
