NRA's "Dark Secret" LaPierre "A Menace With A Gun"
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.) — The NRA vs. America | Rolling Stone

They put off an instantly recognized negative vibration that says I don't know what the fuck I'm doing and I'm liable to hurt myself and anyone around me!
The other people who scare me this much are the whackjobs who openly carry.

10. Bingo...Why He's So Beligerant
You can tell this dude isn't a hunter or target shooter or "sportsman"...all of his rhetoric is paranoid, black helicopters stuff these days. It's all around "protection" and shows what a scared, paranoid person he must be. The dude is a lobbyist...and he was installed by the gun companies to sell guns. Mission accomplished.

12. He's playing to the gun customers....
The number of people who are running out and buying assault rifles is actually small but the number of guns sold is high as people are buying up tons of them HOPING for a ban so they can resell them for 10 times what they paid for them.
Makes you wonder where these bumpkin buyers talking to God on a two way radio get the money to buy these weapons. Some of them are running around in the woods wearing more than their truck is worth. It's scary to think that some of them might even work for the government they claim they hate.
