NRA's Wayne LaPierre: Buy A Gun Or You Will Be Killed

In his latest op-ed LaPierre took this argument to new levels, arguing that Americans who don't buy firearms risk death from a number of sources:

Hurricanes. Tornadoes. Riots. Terrorists. Gangs. Lone criminals. These are perils we are sure to face--not just maybe. It's not paranoia to buy a gun. It's survival. It's responsible behavior, and it's time we encourage law-abiding Americans to do just that.

Since the election, millions of Americans have been lining up in front of gun stores, Cabela's and Bass Pro Shops exercising their freedom while they still have it. They are demonstrating they have a mass determination to buy, own and use firearms. Millions of Americans are using market forces like never before to demonstrate their ardent support for our firearm freedoms. That's one of the very best ways we can Stand And Fight.

................

We will not surrender. We will not appease. We will buy more guns than ever. We will use them for sport and lawful self-defense more than ever. We will grow the NRA more than ever. And we will be prouder than ever to be freedom-loving NRA patriots. And with your help, we will ensure that the Second Amendment remains America's First Freedom.

4. Unfortunately, he's got a lot of company

in the form of swaggering idiots who aint gonna let no guvmint tell them what to do.

Doubly unfortunate, there is no greater predictor of having yourself or people close to you die of gun violence than owning a gun. Well, other than living in an active war zone.

2. Hurricanes? Tornadoes? I don't think they give a shit about bullets.

But if he wants to shoot a Tornado, I suggest he ride a house like Dorothy and shoot it form the inside.

6. Could it be any more obvious that LaPierre and the NRA are paid lobbyists for the gun industry?

Seriously, how can anyone not see this for what it is? He's trying to frighten people into buying guns. He even names businesses where they can do so. It would be interesting to see if he's received payments from Cabela's or Bass Pro Shops.
