NRA official claims Obama wants to outlaw guns

Why do conservatives get away with spouting conspiratorial nonsense and still be considered mainstream and respectable?

“All that first term, lip service to gun owners is just part of a massive Obama conspiracy to deceive voters and hide his true intentions to destroy the Second Amendment during his second term,” [NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre] said.

“We see the president’s strategy crystal clear: Get re-elected and, with no more elections to worry about, get busy dismantling and destroying our firearms’ freedom, erase the Second Amendment from the Bill of Rights and excise it from the U.S. Constitution.”

Aside from the thinly veiled sexism of claiming that every woman on the Supreme Court is anti-gun, Wayne LaFruit doesn’t have any real reason to be babbling about this beyond, y’know, OMG LIBERAL. Sure, he’s got a strong record on gun control, but there’s nothing in there to suggest he’d try to ban guns and destroy the 2nd Amendment for no good goddamn reason.
