LaPierre: They’re Coming For Our Guns No Matter What They Say

EVAN MCMORRIS-SANTORO FEBRUARY 3, 2013, 10:54 AM
National Rifle Association leader Wayne LaPierre said on Sunday that despite what pro-gun control politicians say or have written in draft legislation, the push for universal background checks is really a veiled step toward the government tracking law-abiding American citizens, most likely for nefarious purposes.

“I think what they’ll do is turn this universal check on the law-abiding into a universal registry of law-abiding people. And law-abiding people don’t want that. My God, that’s the last thing they want,” LaPierre said on “Fox News Sunday.”

After host Chris Wallace pointed out that post-Newtown firearms proposals from President Obama and other Democrats don’t call for a national registry or a confiscation of weapons already in private hands, LaPierre said he wasn’t buying it.

“Obamacare wasn’t a tax until they wanted it to be a tax. I don’t think you can trust these — I mean my gosh, Dianne Feinstein said, ‘If we could go door to door and pick ‘em up, I’d do it,’” he said.

The two sides of the universal background check debate were laid out fairly cleanly on “Fox News Sunday,” with Mark Kelly, husband of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), advocating for it. Though an assault weapons ban was discussed — and largely dismissed as a legislative possibility — the focus was on universal background checks, the top goal of the gun control community after the school massacre in Newtown, Conn.

14. Wayne LaPierre got a Vietnam draft deferment for mental illness! It's his gun he's scared about.

Back then he must have been very unstable, they didn't hand out many of those deferments.

9. The more I hear from LaPierre et al, the more I DO want to confiscate their guns

All their threats of insurrection and civil war have convinced me that gunowners are a clear and present danger to the security of the USA and its citizens.

10. The only strategery is to buy more guns!

Quick! Everybody go out and buy more guns than "they" can carry.

It's the same great plan that Czar Nicholas used to win WW1: send out more soldiers than the Germans could shoot.

13. I bet he has to look under the bed for monsters 100 times before going to sleep each night.

Interspersed with armed searches of the closet.
