Is Wayne LaPierre Pulling Your Strings? by Rick London


Before the NRA was founded America had guns.  We never worried about our 2nd Amendment rights, because like our other rights, they were and are clearly written in the Constitution. All common usage guns are protected.   When the NRA was founded, they were on the side of gun-owners, even teaching gun safety classes (one of which I took and most enjoyed).

In the early 1990s, things changed. Suddenly we were told our 2nd Amendment rights were at risk.  How could this be. America was fine for 300 years before the founding of the NRAand suddenly the 2nd Amendment was in trouble?  Who was telling us this?  It turned out the NRA was telling us this.   The smart Americans began to easily understand they were lobbying, no longer for gun owners, but for gun manufacturers (and sellers).   The end-buyer was to be the fearful chess pawn who would buy more guns due to the big bad monster under the bed who swallows guns.

LaPierre, admittedly did his job so well, that on 12/14, when 20 children were brutally mowed down to the size of molecules, Americans all over were holding tight to their guns, wondering if this was the last straw; not even thinking of the families and their horrendous losses.   He not only has brainwashed them, he has made them extremely ill.  Children are more important than Bushmasters.  I know that’s hard to believe for some, but its really true. 

Every country which has had horrendous civil wars have had their own version of  Wayne LaPierre; Syria, the former Libya and Iraq and the list goes on and on.

The chess game is not rocket science. It’s simple unscrupulous business. The gun lobby pays (and grades) the political system of each country, tells them how to vote and often writes their states laws.   They then instill fear in the end user (gun owners) that they need more guns as bad people with even more guns are after their guns.   And every time they buy into it.

I so hoped Americans were smarter than that. Fortunately most are (yes even NRA members) who joined it in the nostalgic times when it was honest and provided a decent service.

So what happens when inevitably a civil war breaks out in each of the countries (which it does)?  The Wayne LaPierre’s of the world leave those countries right at the outbreak of the wars sipping drinks with umbrellas on Polynesian beaches laughing loudly at all the puppets they manipulated to become billionaires.

Are you one of their puppets?   You don’t have to be a gun-owner to be one.  There are plenty of decent law-abiding gun-owners who know this game a lot better than I do.  And they want no part of it.  To be one of the puppets, all  you have to be is A. Paid by the NRA or B. Naive or both. ————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

  1. We are surrounded by NRA puppets both Democrat and Republican who voted to block any discussion of gun laws in the Senate. The NRA has set up a win win situation. They have watered down the current background check Senate Bill and it has left a giant gaping hole. Even if it does pass it still allows for person to person sales without a background check. Perhaps one day the Right to life, liberty etc. will include the right to not be shot with an assault weapon in a non-combat situation within the USA. Love Your LW Lee xx00xx

    • You are right baby. More than half the laws on the books now were either written or dictated by the NRA after they quit being a real organization and converted to a lobbying group for the gun manuf. Those laws are ridiculous at best. We do have our rights for this country not to become a Syria or former Iraq…and its going to take aware people who know what is going on; both pro and anti gun people. I’m very pro 2nd Amendment. Nobody in the history of America has done more to erode the 2nd Amendment than the NRA. How ironic.

  2. You’re not seriously grouping LaPierre with the tyrants in Syria, Libya & Iraq, are you?
    And you can’t seriously believe that anything in the proposed legislation that the Senate is currently debating will help stave off a sicko intent of doing mass harm, can you? Every state and every authorized dealer at every gun show currently does background checks. There is only one reason the progressives want to federalize background checks even among private family transactions–so they can have record of who owns firearms. That is TMI for the federal government.
    Is the leftist gun control push good for bumping up NRA membership and gun sales? Absolutely. But hype? I’m afraid not.
    A lot of Americans never thought we would go the road of socialized medicine, either. Like England, like Australia–there goes medical care, there go your guns.

    • Am actually pro-gun, pro-2nd amendment, and at one time pro-NRA. That was back when they repped us gun owners. They can now go to hell. They represent automatic weapon manufacturers, create scare tactics for the ignorant (don’t tell me you don’t know they are catering to the ignorant)…..My guns are fine. The only people worried about their guns getting taken away are the paranoid. Notice that? No, I guess not. Maybe the ones who are worried SHOULD BE. Maybe they are not fit to own a gun. And you obviously wrote that long b4 the Zimmerman trial. Now the DOJ has packed up, left DC and is in Sanford going over every SYG case because they realize lawmakers didn’t write that law, yours truly, the ambulance chasing weasel NRA lawyers did, and guess what…you didn’t guess it. It’s unconstitutional. Don’t believe me? Watch what the DOJ does. And guess what again. I’ll still have my gun because I understand responsibile gun safety. I don’t know about you though. Thanks for your comments.
