In are response to comments and urging of a number of Republicans Senators and Representatives Wayne La Pierre, leader of the N.A.R. has issued the following statement:
The Second Amendment is the center piece of freedom and American values. We are the longest standing Civil Rights organization in the United States. We fight for your freedom. If you must fight, don’t lose. Good guys carrying guns can and do make a difference. The best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. You can’t tell the difference between the lions and the lambs. I am defending and protecting your right to purchase the largest clip and rounds of bullets that are presently available. Therefore, today I am announcing that we, the N.R.A. will begin a new membership drive in all states, and readily available to all. We soon will be setting up N.R.A. kiosks outside all movie theaters, and stadiums to add new members and educate the people to the importance of high capacity magazines and assault rifles. We want them to discover that like Wyatt Earp, they too can enjoy their version of the gunfight at the OK Corral, Batman movie or any other venue they choose. Stadiums are even better since attendance there is huge. We want as many bodies riddled with bullets as possible.
He then went on to reiterate his comments from May, 2012, as reported by The Onion, http://www.theonion.com/articles/nra-sets-1000-killed-in-school-shooting-as-amount,28352/?ref=auto. As they apply to “soft-targets etc. I was impressed with his passion for higher body counts. He continued:
Government policies are killing us. In response, along with my previous statement, we are planning to be the “bookmobile: for assault weapons and ammunition, as much as you want. There are those who say the I have the charisma of an unflushed toilet. I do not fear them. Our future is bright and bloody. I will not stop protecting our civil rights and freedom.
This will only end when they take my assault rifle from my blood drenched, dripping hand.
