NRA Now Preaching Way Beyond Gun Rights With Right-Wing Talking Points
[su_right_ad]Wayne LaPierre says he wants to reach people who believe “America is off the rails,” and so the National Rifle Association’s message has gone way beyond gun issues.
The gun lobby’s campaign, launched in the last 10 days, uncharacteristically delves into issues far beyond the Second Amendment to explore the IRS scandal, media elitism and security vulnerabilities, with a call to return “good guys” to power.
“This campaign is a gathering of shared values that gives a sense of right and wrong,” NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre told The Washington Times in an interview. The collection of issues the ads confront are representative of the conversations Mr. LaPierre said he has had throughout the country with NRA members and concerned citizens.
Now, there’s a representative group: NRA members, who already agree with LaPierre on almost everything, and “concerned citizens” who are “concerned” because they don’t like the direction the country is going. Uh, that would be NRA members and people who already agree with Wayne LaPierre. Soon, we’ll be hearing from the NRA on taxes, gay rights, abortion and Benghazi.
