CPAC: NRA's Wayne LaPierre criticizes media, feds and White House of offering illogical solutions to gun violence
The National Rifle Association's Wayne LaPierre delivered a rousing speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington D.C. on Friday, and was given several standing ovations.
LaPierre opened by noting the NRA's strong history of gun safety education and reiterated the NRA's desire to put armed protection in America's schools.
The NRA Executive CEO then fired attacks at the Department of Homeland Security's suggestion that scissors are the answer to fighting back against spree killers. He also attacked gun control extremists suggestion that "universal" background checks are anything other than a federal database to make it possible for the government to "tax them or to take them."
Speaking of the effects of sequestration, LaPierre observed that "instead of rational belt-tightening ... the first thing the government does is let criminal illegals out of jail. It's as if insanity itself has been sequestered in Washington."
LaPierre also addressed Vice President Biden's recent suggestion that an effective answer to a home invasion would be to fire two shotgun blasts into the air on the back porch.
"That's their answer?" LaPierre repeatedly observed as he addressed each proposal. "And they say we're crazy?"
LaPierre then spent the balance of his speech providing proposals on this that actually will work to cut crime and prevent the mentally ill from gaining access to firearms.
