Irony Of The Week: NRA Accuses Democrats Of Using Newtown To Push Anti-Gun Agenda
We know the NRA would never do this, right?
National Rifle Association executive director Chris W. Cox drew a line in the sand during the gun rights groupâ€™s annual convention in Houston on Friday. ‘Where we see tragedy, Barack Obama and Michael Bloomberg see opportunity,â€™ he said.
â€˜While we prayâ€™ after gun-related disasters, he said, â€˜they rush to the microphones and cameras, and scheme about how to use that tragedy to push their political agenda.’
Legislators and their ‘billionaire supporters,’ Cox added in a clear reference to Bloomberg, New York Cityâ€™s anti-gun mayor, ‘attack us, ridicule us, and worst of all, blame us for the acts of deranged criminals and madmen.’
