Speaking with Cincinnati radio host Bill Cunningham on Sunday, Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt delightedly told a second-hand story about of a member of his group lobbying a congresswoman, who reportedly told the GOA member, “You want to shoot me, don’t you.” Pratt said he didn’t think this man actually wanted to shoot the congresswoman, but added, “that’s probably a healthy fear for them to have.” “You know, I’m kind of glad that’s in the back of their minds,” he said. “Hopefully they’ll behave....

Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt invited Selwyn Duke, a writer for The American Thinker , to be his guest on Gun Owners News Hour last month to discuss the death of Nelson Mandela and race relations in the United States. The discussion was just as thoughtful as you might expect coming from the author of such columns as “Obama’s America: Why Black Grievance Will Never End” and the activist who has ties to white supremacists and thinks it’s very possible that President Obama is instigating a race war. The two started off by discussing a column in which Duke... MORE >

The Christian Post reports that "Family Research Council President Tony Perkins led seven members of Congress known for their strong ties to evangelical Christians on a nine-day swing through Israel's Holy Land earlier this month, touring the country's most important religious sites and meeting with top-level Israeli officials." Larry Pratt says people are buying weapons this time of year because they’re scared of Obama. Glenn Beck is "convinced that Thanksgiving and Christmas and New Year’s are put together through divine providence, that when we... MORE >

It turns out that Gun Owners of America executive director Larry Pratt has a David Barton-esque sideline of combing through the Bible to find evidence that God is against gun laws. At a prayer breakfast in Tulsa earlier this month – which was also attended by Pratt ally Sen. Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael – Pratt went through his argument that the Bible is against gun control. We’ll spare you the bulk Pratt’s biblical scholarship, most of which can be found in this convoluted essay, and leave you with the conclusion. “I would submit that if we have gun... MORE >

One of Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt’s stock lines is about how the one exception to his anti-gun-law absolutism is that he supports banning “angry liberals” from owning firearms. The topic came up again yesterday when Pratt joined conspiracy theorist Alex Jones to discuss their joint effort to “take over the Republicans” with Tea Party leaders such as Ted Cruz and Ken Cuccinelli. Jones went off on a tangent on gun violence, claiming that “almost all” mass shooters come from “liberal Democrat families” and are “all into... MORE >

In an interview with NewsMax’s Steve Malzberg yesterday, Gun Owners of American executive director Larry Pratt said that Trayvon Martin was killed because he had a “broken family.” Pratt and Malzberg were discussing last week’s Senate hearing on Stand Your Ground laws, at which Martin’s mother Sybrina Fulton gave impassioned testimony. At the hearing, Sen. Ted Cruz dismissed Fulton’s testimony as “simply mourning the loss of your son” and asserted that Stand Your Ground laws in fact “protect those in African-American communities.”... MORE >

Gun Owners of America head Larry Pratt appeared on the Talk To Solomon Show this week to issue his usual warnings about President Obama becoming a dictator. He told Solomon that Obama is “a very dangerous man” who “really has an impulse for total control,” calling on Republicans in Congress to refuse to fund Obama-backed projects. He says that this will provoke Obama to “spend money without authorization” and that will be “the time to impeach him.” Pratt later discussed with co-hosts Stan Solomon and Steve Davis the best ways to repeal...
