This jerk has the audacity to be giving advice to the NRA now? What a putz.
Mark Kelly, the husband of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (R-Ariz.), penned an op-ed calling for the ouster of NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre ahead of the group’s annual convention this weekend in Houston.In a piece written for the Houston Chronicle, Kelly says leaders like LaPierre have abandoned their previous support for safety measures like universal background checks “in exchange for cold hard cash” from gun manufacturers.
“LaPierre and the gun manufacturers he represents exploit people’s fears,” Kelly writes. “In return gun manufacturers gave LaPierre and the NRA tens of millions of dollars last year alone – and he spent almost $1 million of it on his own salary.”
You know who should be fired in all this? This idiot reporter for labeling Gabby Giffords a Republican. Meanwhile, why would the NRA dump a guy who’s helped add hundreds of thousands of new members?
Speakers at the National Rifle Association’s annual convention took pot shots at President Barack Obama, as the man who has become the face of America’s largest gun-rights group announced that the NRA had grown to 5 million members.
‘By the time we’re finished, that must and will be 10 million,’ said NRA executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre.
In a most pathetic gathering in Houston, anti-gun nuts showed up to protest outside the NRA convention. How sad.
