The only thing he cares about is representing those who manufacturer guns, he could care less about sportsmen,or the private citizen, he doesn't represent them he only wants to "sell more guns". Public safely is irrelevant when your big fat paycheck comes from gun makers selling more and more guns.

that's because the NRA has been growing more and more extreme over the past decade.

Even as the senators were debating gun violence on Capitol Hill, another mass shooting was taking place in Phoenix, Arizona. that says it all to me!

Thanks Carrie for the link to the video. I just wonder if Mr. LaPierre ever thinks of himself as being an accomplice to murder? Viewed and noted.

LaPierre is like a brick wall...he doesn't get it - or he doesn't want to get it! Watching him is a lesson in frustration! I think HE is responsible for countless deaths! "Karma" is a bitch - he will have to pay a huge price, somewhere along the line! The tragedy is that so many innocent others are also paying a huge price...death by guns of kids, parents, siblings, loved ones! Everytime I turn on my TV or computer, there is news of still more gun deaths. Today I read about a Chicago teen who performed at the Obama Inauguration, killed by drive by shooting! God, it makes me SICK that some our ELECTED officials are putting up roadblocks to those that are trying to do something about this tragedy!

Just AS sickening I found what that $%& Gayle Trotter had to say! ( ‘Guns make women safer’) In fact, I'm going to post this-for all who missed.

Isn't it just amazing how short his memory is? Or does he have political Alzheimer's? I know people's opinions can change over time, but that isn't a change. It is a world class sell out to the weapons manufacturers.

May he be like his name and sink to the bottom of the ocean.

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. Jon Stewart did a bit on this that was great. This excuse-for-a-human-being that talks out of both sides of his mouth needs a reality check. Nothing he says makes any sense to anyone except fanatics and those who are mentally ill. The sooner the media ignores him the better.
