NRA Kicks Off Annual Meeting As LaPierre Warns Obama Reelection Makes Him “Free To Misuse His Ever-Increasing Power”
NRA Executive Director Wayne LaPierre believes a second Obama term will mean the end of gun rights in America.
In an article in the NRA’s magazine, America’s 1st Freedom, he writes that “this year’s election could prove the most disastrous in the history of this country”. He warns that Obama is dedicated to dismantling the second amendment – the right to keep and bear arms.
Contrary to LaPierre’s dire forebodings, Obama has barely spoken on the subject of guns since he entered the White House, and gun controls have been rolled back during his term by seminal US supreme court rulings.
But that won’t stop an all-star right-wing lineup that agrees with the NRA.
