NRA boss says he retreated on borrowed yacht after avalanche of threats

Wayne LaPierre, the head of the National Rifle Association, said after school shootings in recent years that left scores of young students dead, he had to seek shelter on a friend’s borrowed yacht fearing for his safety, a court filing revealed. In the document, LaPierre said, ’I was basically under presidential threat without presidential security in terms of the number of threats I was getting.’

Geck...you have no idea what you're talking about. Automatic guns are not available nor legal to own for the general public. Get your terminology straight.

NRA exec fears for his life after he became the most recent target of the tolerant & unifying left. This “new normal” seems to be unfolding at a rapid pace. Operation Mockingbird & their crisis actors are working tirelessly to dismantle our right to bear arms. Global news reports show China is openly bragging about infiltrating the U.S Government including the current administration.

Hey Silence Dogood, You may want to check it out yourself. https://coloradosun.com/2021/03/24/assaults-weapons-ban-colorado-boulder-shooting/ Connecticut’s definition of an assault weapon includes a semiautomatic shotgun that can accept a detachable magazine. (A semiautomatic gun is one in which the trigger must be pulled each time a bullet is fired. Automatic weapons, in which users only have to hold down the trigger to continuously fire, are generally only legal in the U.S. if they were manufactured before 1986, though they are relatively rare and neither cheap nor easy to purchase.) https://www.boisestatepublicradio.org/post/automatic-weapons-are-legal-it-takes-lot-get-one-630000-us According to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), as of 2017, there were 630,000 machine guns in the U.S. That, however, is a fraction of the roughly 400 million guns in America.

Hold on. We're supposed to feel sorry for an NRA executive because he had to flee to a yacht over the vague notion of a threat following a mass-shooting? Is this for real? LOL I think his fear of retribution, delusional or otherwise, boils over only because he knows he's a merchant of death. Guilt comes from within, LaPierre. Suck on it. Oh! And did anyone read to the end of the the WT article...? he says he stopped using the yacht in 2019 after the NRA decided to "self correct" - HAHA! Hilarious, this guy! I think you mean bankruptcy, LaPierre. Multiple charges of corruption lead to your exit from NYC, LaPierre. The NRA exists at the behest of gun manufacturers. The NRA are gun runners. They exist for profit. They do not exist to defend the spirit in which the 2nd amendment was written: “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Pro-gun enthusiasts focus on the latter half of the amendment, but what about the the first clause: a well-regulated militia....a well-regulated militia became state national guard which were meant to represent & defend the people of the state in case of an oppressive federal government. My interpretation is that the militia (aka state national guard) are the representation of the people in the eyes of the federal government, and they "the people" should be armed.... Not to mention the fact that the weapons available at the time of the original signing of the amendment are significantly more dangerous, like 100X more dangerous, than the muskets and bayonets they had back then....I doubt our founding fathers felt every individual citizen should have super easy access to an arsenal of weapons unimaginable at the time. Our 2nd amendment needs updating, and the majority of our population is in favor of stricter gun control laws. The right wants to boycott Coca-Cola for speaking out against racist legislation in Georgia. In a just world, we would spend our energy boycotting gun manufacturer's for creating all these little machines that kill people super easy. I mean, how does one justify a citizen's need or "right" to a weapon of war? I get self defense as an argument, but how many people truly fear an multi-pronged attack on their home? In a just world, we would also spend our energy boycotting our federal & state governments for not funding equal & easy access to mental health care.

Then maybe you should stop the NRA from involving itself in politics. Let the NRA go back to being about safety and learning.
