Fox News Takes On The NRA

Wayne LaPierre’s interview today on Fox News Sunday got pretty heated today. Chris Wallace pressed LaPierre on his opposition to background checks as well his now infamous video attacking President Obama’s children.

The Huffington Post has a partial transcript:

At the end of an already tense interview, Wallace asked LaPierre to explain the NRA’s video accusing President Barack Obama of wanting armed security for his own children but opposing it for others. Wallace pointed out that the president’s children face a larger threat than most.

“Tell that to the people at Newtown,” LaPierre replied, referring to the town where an armed shooter killed 20 young children at an elementary school in December.

“Do you really think that the president’s children are the same kind of target as every schoolchild in America?” Wallace asked. “It’s ridiculous, and you know it, sir.”

Lets all take a minute to remember that even Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch supports the assault weapons ban.

  1. Wallace brings up the point I’ve been saying from the start. The Obama children face everyday threats that most other children don’t. Therefore they should have a security detail. I’m glad Wallace puts him in his place. The administration has never said it will take away shotguns. Feinstein’s bill DOES NOT say so. It’s sad this guy represents the NRA.

    On another note, glad you got Paperblog to work (or at least the logo on your blog).

    I thought at first the title was a joke.
    This LaPierre is the closest thing i can think of as ‘evil.’ I’m not even American and it’s difficult to just watch this wanker.

    • I really thought he’d soften up after Newtown. For something like that not to shock the conscience… That’s cold. I’ve always been more on the side of gun rights but that changed me…

        I can understand the 2nd Amendment in the context of when it was written. Strict Constitutionalists though come across as being mildly insane to me. All constitutions are organic documents. To think something is “sacred” is just in error.

  3. When even Fox thinks your mad, you know you’ve crossed a line
