“There’s nothing about an insane criminal committing a horrible act that should lead to the government taking guns away from law-abiding citizens. That will only make us less safe. Yet that’s exactly what we’re seeing right now: a highly orchestrated effort to disarm American citizens.
“It’s an effort to destroy the NRA, to defame our millions of members. Let’s fight to make sure no madman, or billionaire, or elitist politician ever takes away our God-given right to protect our lives, our homes, and the people we love.” – Wayne LaPierre, in a new NRA video.
The El Paso gunman’s manifesto used the same language the NRA routinely uses to demonize immigrants in an attempt to scare its members. That fact was not included in a new unhinged NRA video about the El Paso and Dayton shootings. https://t.co/qGDAIFqsIo
