Wayne’s World

February 22, 2013

Wayne LaPierre, the big Kahuna of the National Rifle Association and chief shill for the firearms industry, is a frightened man living in terrifying times. Writing for the Daily Caller (an anemic little imitation of the Huffington Post), Wayne describes his world (for the full text see:

During the second Obama term, however, additional threats are growing. Latin American drug gangs have invaded every city of significant size in the United States. Phoenix is already one of the kidnapping capitals of the world, and though the states on the U.S./Mexico border may be the first places in the nation to suffer from cartel violence, by no means are they the last.

The president flagrantly defies the 2006 federal law ordering the construction of a secure border fence along the entire Mexican border. So the border today remains porous not only to people seeking jobs in the U.S., but to criminals whose jobs are murder, rape, robbery and kidnapping. Ominously, the border also remains open to agents of al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations. Numerous intelligence sources have confirmed that foreign terrorists have identified the southern U.S. border as their path of entry into the country.

After Hurricane Sandy, we saw the hellish world that the gun prohibitionists see as their utopia. Looters ran wild in south Brooklyn. There was no food, water or electricity. And if you wanted to walk several miles to get supplies, you better get back before dark, or you might not get home at all.

Meanwhile, President Obama is leading this country to financial ruin, borrowing over a trillion dollars a year for phony “stimulus” spending and other payoffs for his political cronies. Nobody knows if or when the fiscal collapse will come, but if the country is broke, there likely won’t be enough money to pay for police protection. And the American people know it.

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..

Holy Crap! EVERYBODY PANIC! And what do you know? ITS OBAMA’S FAULT! BONUS!

This is a load of claptrap, of course. For an excellent takedown on this fact-free lunacy, see the thoroughly researched and annotated analysis of Joe Nocera here:

It seems clear how we should respond to this Mad Max version of 21st Century America: Buy a gun, if not two or three. Don’t forget thousands of rounds of ammo because we all know that guns don’t kill—bullets do.

Then let’s head for the border and shoot some Mexicans! Or if we’re lucky, an al Qaeda jihadist or two! Then let’s take our little arsenals and go hunting for suspicious characters and random bad guys, George Zimmerman style! Better not be black, wearing a hoodie and armed with a bag of Skittles or you will see the business end of my Sig Saur.

I guess it should be no surprise that a paranoid, insular and endlessly self-referencing outfit like the NRA would have a Nixon-like enemies list. Until recently, this list was hiding in plain sight on the organization’s web site.

The page was taken down when it started getting some unwanted scrutiny from the Main Stream Media (by that I mean the sane media). Almost everyone is on the list, either directly or indirectly. For the complete list, go to:

I want to call your attention to some select NRA enemies:

  • American Association for the Surgery of Trauma
  • American Association of School Administrators
  • American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • American Association of Neurological Surgeons
  • American Firearms Association
  • Council of Chief State School Officers
  • National Coalition Against Domestic Violence
  • National Association of Secondary School Principals
  • National Center to Rehabilitate Violent Youth
  • National Spinal Cord Injury Association
  • Society of Critical Care Medicine

It stands to reason that the NRA would consider physicians who deal with the results of gun violence enemies. But associations of school administrators? How is that going too help with the NRA’s grand plan to put armed guards in every school? The American Firearms Association must be apostates, as far as I can figure.

Speaking of apostasy, it is worth noting the number of religious organizations on the list. It basically includes almost everyone. I guess Wayne does not believe in God, or worse yet, he considers God his enemy. What would that make Wayne? Come on evangelicals—I know you know the answer to this.

Fearful, paranoid individuals should not be in a position of influencing public policy—at least not until they get their medication dialed in.

  1. Could you please post membership statistics for these organizations, also date founded etc.? Is this post considered an “appeal to authority” ? If so please establish the authority.

    • For all 556 entries on the list? It’s not my list. Perhaps you should ask the NRA. Do your own research.

  2. Democrats and the Constitution make Wayne’s world seem very normal:

    • I do not see how the link has anything to do with the post. If you want to post replies, then you must stay on topic. This site is not for random right-wing rants.

  3. Quoting you: “Fearful, paranoid individuals should not be in a position of influencing public policy—at least not until they get their medication dialed in.”

    So what do we say to Adam Lanza, Jared Loughner and James Holmes? Why are they getting such a huge say in influencing public policy?

    • Your comment is both unnecessarily argumentative and ridiculous at the same time. You are correct, probably inadvertently so, to put the NRA and the spree killers in the same category.

  4. Wayne LaPierre has shot someone recently? Your sense of equivalency is disturbing.

    • And so is yours.The perps you referenced were not trying to influence public policy, unless you think they committed mass murder because they thought the nation needed stronger gun control laws. Wayne, however, is. We expect paranoid delusionals to to act out in violent ways, not to try to warp an important public debate with his own private dystopia that he thinks is America.

  5. Chris Dorner was outspokenly pro-gun control in his last rant. But who cares what their intentions were? These crazy psychopaths are having a stupid effect on the gun control debate. In the meantime we mock an outspoken non-criminal gun rights advocate calling him crazy. Chris Dorner was crazy. But mocking ideological opponents is what people who are insufficient in rhetoric do.
