Thought this footnote deserved its own post, in relation to the States’ Rights discussion:
Special shout out to major league asshole Wayne LaPierre, head of the NRA. LaPierre advocates a federal law allowing citizens of states that allow concealed carry of firearms to bring their concealed guns into all other states. This insane shit idea is actually being debated and has a lot of votes in the Congress.
These highly principled gun rights advocates have banned guns from an upcoming address by Koch puppet and Trump’s VP Mike Pence at the NRA’s annual national convention. All those good guys with guns who can stop a bad guy with a gun will be prevented from carrying guns when they go hear Mike Pence address the upcoming pro-gun rally in Dallas. Way to go, Wayne!
In fairness to Wayne and his murderous ilk, the Secret Service, assigned to guard Pence against assassination, will not allow guns at the event. The NRA is only following the law. One still must wonder why the president’s own men have become such anti-gun freedom haters.
High school students, some of whom hate LaPierre’s freedom, pile on:
“Wait wait wait wait wait wait you’re telling me to make the VP safe there aren’t any weapons around but when it comes to children they want guns everywhere?” Matt Deitsch, a Parkland student who helped organize the March for Our Lives rally in Washington, D.C., wrote on Twitter. “Can someone explain this to me? Because it sounds like the NRA wants to protect people who help them sell guns, not kids.”
