Behold Wayne LaPierre's Nightmarishly Paranoid Vision Of America

There are few regular CPAC speakers who can match the NRA's Wayne LaPierre when it comes to peddling wholesale paranoia and nightmarish visions of the future as he did while speaking today when he warned that neighborhood streets that were once filled with laughter and freedom now sit ominously silent because Americans are in fear for their lives, which is why they are loading up on all the ammunition and weapons they can get.

"In the world that surrounds us," he proclaimed, "there are terrorists, and there are home-invaders, drug cartels, car-jackers, knockout-gamers, and rapers, and haters, and campus killers, airport killers, shopping mall killers, and killers who scheme to destroy our country with massive storms of violence against our power grids or vicious waves of chemicals or disease that could collapse our society that sustains us all."

"Do you trust this government to protect you?" LaPierre asked the crowd, which responded with a resounding "no!"

"We are on our own. That is a certainty":

Paranoia-Rama: This Week In Right-Wing Lunacy - 12/13/13

In this edition, we learn that homosexuality is as contagious as the common cold, public schools are pushing homosexual/Islamic indoctrination and that President Obama may be behind the death of a state official involved in the release of his birth certificate. And no, there is absolutely no evidence to actually support any of this.

Ted Nugent Blames Liberals And Welfare Programs For Gun Violence

National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent knows the real culprit for gun violence: welfare programs. In his latest column, Nugent that the “social welfare programs designed, engineered and promoted by liberals have wreaked havoc on black families across America” and encouraged “urban street rats.”

“Don’t hold your breath waiting for the president or any other liberal to tell you this,” Nugent laments. “That would be blowing a huge truth hole in the liberal lie that continues to wreak havoc on urban America.”

Even with the overwhelming majority of murders being committed by gangbangers, according the central planners in D.C., it surely must be the NRA that is at least partially complicit because they fight against the central planners’ “common-sense” gun control regulations.

Rarely do you hear the president or his hapless vice president blame the murders and mayhem on those who pulled the trigger. Instead, they blame the NRA, institutional racism, the GOP, global warming, Wall Street bankers, spotted owls and adrift polar bears. The ugly truth is that urban street rats are responsible for the nightly shootouts in every large urban area in America.

If Mr. Obama wants to blame something for this other than the punks who pulled the trigger, he might want to inform America that for the past 50 years social welfare programs designed, engineered and promoted by liberals have wreaked havoc on black families across America.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for the president or any other liberal to tell you this. That would be blowing a huge truth hole in the liberal lie that continues to wreak havoc on urban America.

America has been punked.

Nugent: Obama Like A Crack Addict

Ted Nugent compared President Obama to a crack addict and an alcoholic during an interview yesterday with conservative radio host Lars Larson. After attacking Obama for “violating his oath, violating the basics of America, the basics of ‘We The People,’” the NRA board member said Obama reminds him of a “criminal son or daughter asking for more allowance so they can buy more crack.”

“Their spending ways can only be described as a drunken idiot, the waste, the corruption, the fraud, the deceit, the abuse of power, it breaks my heart.”

Beck Demonstrates The NRA's Commitment To Safety

Glenn Beck broadcast his television broadcast last from Houston, TX where is he in town to speak at the annual NRA convention. Prior to telling his audience that the shooting that occurred earlier that today at the Houston airport was a false flag "set-up" tied to the "uber left," Beck was extolling the virtues of the NRA and the organization's dedication to gun safety.

In making the point, Beck pointed to a table full of historical weapons he had gotten from the NRA museum that he is going to be using in his speech tomorrow and recounted how, all day long, NRA staff had been reminding him how to safely pick up and hold a firearm, all of which Beck said he already knows because he took a NRA safety course.

In fact, the NRA is so concerned about safety that staffers even taped a large "T" on the wall of the auditorium to mark the spot at which all of the guns lying on the table were pointed, signaling that nobody should ever be standing in that area.

But when Beck went to point it out, he first had to ask one of his staff members to move ... because she was standing right in front of it:

LaPierre: A National Firearm Database Will Be Hacked by the Chinese or Handed Over to Mexico

The NRA's Wayne LaPierre spoke at CPAC today, where he was introduced by a video full of clips of people in the media calling him a radical lunatic before launching into a speech where he repeatedly called everyone else crazy for thinking that his positions and views are crazy.

And he proved how reasonable he is by saying that any effort to create a database of gun owners would either be hacked by the Chinese government, handed over to Mexican government, or used by the American government to confiscate them:

NRA: Loaded Guns Okay at Schools but Not Gun Shows

By now everyone has seen NRA head Wayne LaPierre declare that “the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun” while calling for armed guards in every American school. The NRA’s proposed solution to gun violence can be boiled down to even more guns, and the group wants concealed weapons in all public spaces – including churches, schools, bars and airports.

If there’s one place that I would expect to be able to take a concealed gun, it’s to a gun show. That’s why I was struck by the advice doled out by the NRA’s National Firearms Museum on “How to be a Gun Collector.” In the article, authored by NRA museum director Jim Supica, would-be gun collectors are directed to “practice basic gun safety” at gun shows.

Supica starts off with the most basic rule of gun safety, warning against allowing “the muzzle of a gun you're handling to point at other folks.” But then he stumbles badly off-message (from the NRA party line) with some commonsense advice that, were President Obama to say it, would hasten comparisons to Mao and Hitler.

The NRA’s Supica directs gun collectors to “keep your guns tied inoperable” (like this) when attending a gun show, noting that this is a “requirement at the better shows.” And he isn't done.

Supica then directs gun collectors to “never bring a loaded gun into a show,” even if it’s a “legal concealed carry gun.” Furthermore, collectors should never “test chamber a round in a show.” Of course, your typical armed guard or concealed carry enthusiast already has a round in the chamber, but never mind that.

Supica observes that “negligent discharges are very rare at shows.” However, when they do happen they typically involve “a concealed carry gun that was brought in loaded.”

You might be wondering why this namby-pamby Supica character hates the Second Amendment so much or whether the NRA knows it has a gun-hating pinko running its museum. But in their defense, Supica’s article bears this disclaimer: “Opinions are those of the author and not necessarily those of NRA or the National Firearms Museum.” Well, that’s a relief. Supica may be an NRA employee and run their museum, but at least his commonsense, life-saving advice can’t be pinned on the NRA.

But maybe Supica isn’t such an outlier. As Scott Keyes reported in January, gun shows typically ban attendees from carrying loaded guns. Yet the NRA categorically supports efforts to expand concealed carry to “previously prohibited places.”

The takeaway, then, is that guns should be unloaded, tied inoperable and held out in the open at gun shows. But if you’re at a church, school, bar or shopping mall, you should feel free to conceal and carry a loaded gun with a bullet in the chamber. And that is how you practice basic gun safety.
