Was Wayne LaPierre given a draft deferment because of mental disorder...?

It was mentioned in a couple of posts here on DU, but I can't track it down.

Did anybody research?

(Yes, my Google works fine. Not so with my brain. Flu...no, wait....FLU!)

2. I don't know if it's true . . .

I don't know if it's true, but it sure does sound about right.

4. He was said to have drawn lottery #97 and wrnt to his doctor who said he had

A nerve problem. Maybe this is why he does not want background checks, he would be on the No Buy list.

6. He was born in 1948 same as I was and there was no lottery

when I was of draft age. I was drafted in 1968 maybe if he somehow got a deferment until
December 1969 he was included in the lottery.

9. Yes. A "nervous disorder"

Just another dodge from a fucking coward. If that's true, he shouldn't be allowed to own a gun.

10. yes, and that's prob. good, because he's a menace with a gat, i guess

LaPierre did not come from gun culture. He wasn't a hunter, a marksman, a military man or a Second Amendment activist. "He's not a true believer," says NRA biographer Osha Gray Davidson. "He's the first NRA chief you can say that about."

According to NRA legend, LaPierre is actually a menace with a gun. NRA's PR team once thought it would be sexy to film LaPierre at a firing range. "It was a nightmare," an NRA staffer told Davidson. LaPierre was aiming downrange for the camera when an engineer called for a sound check. To answer the man, LaPierre swung around, but he failed to lower his rifle, aiming it directly at the engineer before someone took the gun away from LaPierre. The incident, terrifying at the time, became a dark joke at NRA headquarters. Staffers behind on their projects were threatened that they'd have to "go hunting with Wayne." (The NRA's press office did not reply to Rolling Stone inquiries.)
