Wayne LaPierre going full out to sell more guns...

You expected any different from this snake-oil con artist?

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

National Rifle Association president Wayne LaPierre wrote that Americans need to buy firearms in order to ensure their "survival" and urged gun owners to join the NRA and buy more weapons in an unhinged February 13 Daily Caller op-ed.

"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."

1. I wish an asteroid would fly up his ass!

There's hope. We've got 2012DA14 arriving in the vacinity this Friday. Maybe if we all whistle really loud, it my do our bidding and save the country.

Monsieur LaPierre:

Ouvrez la bouche et dites "Aaah".

2. It's the get-a-gun-or-die message

His ridiculous argument that we'll all be safer if everyone is armed at all times. I will say it's the first time I've read of anyone citing tornadoes as a reason to tote a gun everywhere they go.

4. Seriously, that may be the dumbest gun nut argument I have heard yet

I really want to see Wayne LaPierre go out tornado hunting sometime, he can bring Ted Nugent with him. Next time a major hurricane is heading towards our coasts we will have to send them out with their guns to stop it.

3. It seems to be working for them.

My husband's best friend is a gun enthusiast. He buys things like gunpowder and whatever a gun hobbyist needs all the time. Hubby accompanied him on one of his regular shopping trips to buy gunpowder after Obama responded to the Sandy Creek tragedy. They went to a national sporting goods chain to get the stuff. Sold out. Couldn't order more. Didn't know when they'd be able to order more.

The scary Obama campaign is definitely a winner for the gun makers.
