LaPierre: Connecticut Gun Laws Won’t Stop Violence



National Rifle Association President Wayne LaPierre ridiculed the newly passed gun legislation — some of the toughest in the country — saying that the legislative impact will be nil in with regard to reducing violence in the State.

“I think the problem with what Connecticut did, is the criminals, the drug dealers, the people that are going to do horror and terror, they aren’t going to cooperate. All you’re doing is making the law books thicker for the law-abiding people,” LaPierre said on FOX News.

The NRA President also said that if Connecticut lawmakers were serious about protecting schoolchildren, there would have been more focus put on school safety initiatives including implementation of a plan to put armed guards on campuses.

“From the very start, my thought has been how little it has to do with keeping kids safe and how much it has to do with this decade-long agenda against firearms that… some of the political class and the media have had,” he said.

    And Wayne will make sure it doesn’t by undermining law enforcement, spreading fear as he has done for the past 20 years.

      All you have to do is stop asking law enforcement to enforce obviously unconstitutional laws. Undermining law enforcement was done by politicians not the people.


    Oh that horrible second amendment. It really does create such a problem for the anti civil liberties crowd. If it were not for those old white guys and their stupid amendments the king could fix all this with a stroke of the pen.
    And now we have to put up with people like Wayne on the airways spouting common sense like we need to hear such things. It is people like him and that old civil rights organization that he works for that is holding back socialism and marxism.
    One look at the Socialist platform and you can see that he is not a supporter of said platform. Take a look at the Democratic platform and you just have to know that he would not support that either. The platforms look identical at first glance but a careful reading will prove that they are not identical.
    We received a mandate during the last election and the king must be allowed to do his will.
    America has evolved people and the welfare folk have spoken.
    As Dave has said this fear spreading must stop now.
    We all know that criminals and the insane would never violate a law.
    The solution is so simple, all we need is gun free zone stickers on the front of buildings.
    It is those rednecks that cling to religion, guns and their buddy system that would start a revolution not the king’s loyal subjects.
    We all watch in awe as common sense gun bans march on under fire.
    Armed guards of all things. My god what will they come up with next.

      That gun free zone sticker is a really good idea. I even found where to get them and the simple paperwork you need to register your zone.
