NRA Head LaPierre on Meet the Press: “Call Me Crazy”
You’re not going to hear any surprises here, as NRA bigwig Wayne LaPierre just continues parroting his “more guns are the only solution” talking points, utterly rejects any and all forms of gun control, and advocates for armed guards in every school classroom.
The right wing has been advocating for cutting funds to schools and teachers, and destroying teacher’s unions, but they have no trouble spending as much money as possible on MOAR GUNZ.
I love how LaPierre pretends to be very concerned about improving mental health care — and at the same time repeatedly calls mentally ill people “lunatics” and “monsters.”
But perhaps the most telling moment: when LaPierre says, “If it’s crazy to put more guns in schools, then call me crazy.”
He’ll get no argument from me. He’s not just crazy, he’s batshit insane. If we ever do create a mental health registry, his name should be first on the list.
