NRA spokesmodel Wayne “Pepe” LaPierre told the Senate Judiciary Committee, “Law-abiding gun owners will not accept blame for the acts of violent or deranged criminals.” Did any senator bring up Nancy Lanza? Well, I wasn’t watching, but I think I know the answer to that one.
He went on: “Nor do we believe the government should dictate what we can lawfully own and use to protect our families.” Sure, why should “government” get to decide what is “lawful”?
Actually, he answered that question later: criminals should get to decide what is lawful: “When it comes to the issue of background checks, let’s be honest — background checks will never be universal because criminals will never submit to them.” When enacting gun legislation, the NRA insists on the principle WWDSOKSPD: What Would a Deranged Sociopath on a Killing Spree Do?
