In the eyes of National Rifle Association (NRA) executive vice president Wayne LaPierre, President Barack Obama’s decision not to pursue gun control legislation is a “massive conspiracy,” and just another reason not to give him a second term.
“[The Obama campaign] will say gun owners — they’ll say they left them alone,” LaPierre told an audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Friday. “In public, he’ll remind us that he’s put off calls from his party to renew the Clinton [assault weapons] ban, he hasn’t pushed for new gun control laws… The president will offer the Second Amendment lip service and hit the campaign trail saying he’s actually been good for the Second Amendment.”
“But it’s a big fat stinking lie!” the NRA leader exclaimed. “It’s all part of a massive Obama conspiracy to deceive voters and destroy the Second Amendment in our country.”
“Obama himself is no fool. So when he got elected, they concocted a scheme to stay away from the gun issue, lull gun owners to sleep and play us for fools in 2012. Well, gun owners are not fools and we are not fooled,” La Pierre declared.
Obama's complete failure to magically materialize the massive, scary conspiracy to take guns away from Americans is really a clever trick to take guns away from Americans, much like the fact the sun hasn't exploded into a supernova and destroyed the Earth and all life on it yet is really proof that the evil daystar is just waiting until we let our guard down to immolate all of humanity.
In all honesty, no matter how you feel about the Second Amendment, Wayne LaPierre is just frigging embarrassing. Obama Derangement Syndrome has been the NRA's best friend for years now, but this is borderline mental.
