1. NO! Obviously, the US government already decided once

that he shouldn't be carrying a gun. And if anyone thinks he's better now, just listen to any of his speeches.

14. He was up to 9/11 and then somewhat disassembled trying to support the Iraq War.


Lots of his media friends warned him but he just became obsessed about it.

I would have to say that Hendrie always gave credit to vets and loved lambasting paper tigers like the rest of the guys on the list.

27. I was shocked by Phil Hendrie's addition to the list, too.

Even if he changed his stance a bit, putting him on a list of folks like that seems a tad extreme.
But, I (like many I'm sure) haven't listened to him in some time.
Love his work, though!

8. Yeah, I bet lots of people were nervous about going to war.

They keep arguing that it's not the guns but people with mental illness. So why doesn't someone confront him with his OWN mental illness. And to me, someone with a nervous disorder (translation: itchy trigger finger) shouldn't be anywhere near a gun.

12. I think it is a shame whoever wrote that decided to lump Chris Matthews in with the right wing nuts

He may not be the most liberal of commentators at there, but he sure isn't anything like the list of people he's included in.

16. Media Whores was a site that operated in the Bush yrs

They were quite good, at the time Chris Matthews was not a good friend to Progressives.
MSNBC was slanted right like the rest of the media, I think Keith Olbermann had a huge hand in changing things.

The network learned quickly there was a market for liberals, and thing started to change. It was pretty awful during Bush yrs.
I think once Kieth opened it up, it gave Chris freedom to become a way better pundit.

As far as Meida Whores, I think allot of the people probably went to work for Media Matters.

19. Take his guns, he's "mentally ill" and he's told us clearly they should be registered

 

and not have guns. Ruining it for everyone, they are. (rude gesture to LaPierre)

21. Wayne LP is really a piece of work ...

at least Charlton Heston served. Much as I disliked Heston's NRA advocacy, it's really not fair to cite the Michael Moore interview b/c Heston was clearly in advanced stages of Alzheimer's by then. God help anyone ravaged by that disease!

Another Alzheimer's sufferer who seemed to believe that he served - when he didn't except in fantasy - was St Ronnie of Raygun.

Scalia did attend a Catholic military school. He likely believes that was the same as serving. In some ways, it might have been. http://www.biography.com/people/antonin-scalia-9473091

22. Actually, Reagan kinda sorta served. He was a Culver City Commando who made training films...

during WWII. He never left the states and saw combat, but he did fly a make-up table. I guess he would not be classified as a REMF (Rear Echelon Mother Fucker), but as a RMF (Revlon Mother Fucker)

should be declared mentally unstable and therefore denied access to guns.

28. From a legal perspective, no only if he meets the criteria for a "prohibited person".

National standard is adjudicated incompetent by a court or involuntarily committed under fort order.

I think to judge anyone in the present for a long-past mental health issue is extremely unfair. People can and are successfully treated, recover, and move on. I personally know several people, one a prominent DU member, who have overcome far more serious symptoms than LaPierre and live very fulfilling lives, almost "transparent" in their mental health issues, virtually no one around them has a clue. The same applies to me, even though I'm only months down this road, the only people who know are those I choose to tell. A few people obviously at the outset knew something was up, but not what - it was kinda hard to cover up the locking myself in the office and crying/puking thing.

ALL of that being said, LaPierre is a vile man, a hypocrite of the worst kind. I hate the NRA with a passion, the entire post-Newtown thing has upset me tremendously, and old Wayne deserves whatever bad comes to him for the pain he has caused others through his "work".

29. Chickenhawk Republicans are a veritable Plague upon the nation

These Republicans all need to take a long, hard look in the mirror to detect the deranged, fear-driven quiver that perpetually pulses up and down their spines.

30. Does anyone have a good source for this?

I would love to add the draft deferment information to LaPierre's bio in Wikipedia, but the awolbush website isn't sufficiently mainstream to satisfy many Wikipedia editors. Besides, although awolbush links to sources for some of its assertions, it has no backup for that one. If the information is valid it must have come from somewhere.

I did a quick skim of the first couple pages of Google hits but didn't turn up anything.

Surely someone dislikes Wayne LaPierre enough to dig up the dirt on him?
