Skip to comments.NRA's LaPierre: 'Fast and Furious' Was Plot Against Second Amendment
Posted on 10/17/2011 9:02:54 AM PDT by neverdem
The government-sanctioned gunrunning operation Fast and Furious was a plot to undermine Second Amendment rights in the United States, National Rifle Association officer Wayne LaPierre charged on Friday in an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV.
Its the only thing that makes any sense, LaPierre said. Over a period of two or three years they were running thousands and thousands of guns to the most evil people on earth. At the same time they were yelling 90 per cent of the guns the Mexican drug cartels are using come from the United States.
That was a phony figure from the very start. Even the Wikileaks cables from our own State Department prove they are coming from Central America, they are not coming from the U.S. Every police officer will tell you that theyre coming from Russia, theyre coming from China, most of them are coming from Central America and a lot of them are coming from defections from the Mexican Army, said LaPierre, the NRA's executive vice president and CEO.
But LaPierre said that President Barack Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were determined to make it appear that most weapons used by the Mexicans came from north of the border, so they could stick more gun legislation on honest American gun owners of the United States.
Our job is to protect the Second Amendment and that means that every gun owner, every Second Amendment supporter needs to do everything they can to make sure that President Obama does not get a second term so that he can destroy the Second Amendment.
This is the most dangerous election in our lifetime for the Second Amendment freedom that American citizens have. A second term by President Obama will break the back of that freedom in this country.

The Hildabeast is thuggish.
And those are just her cankles...
Kenny, the only ones with real programs are Cain, Newt, Michele to some extent, and, of course Sarah - but she's not running. I too want concrete proposals and yes, we have to get every Ma and Pa out to vote!
Oh, and why he has any approval beyond his 20% base is a total mystery to me. As I say too often here, there's some negative news every day about Obama, any of which would cause one Not to vote for him. If we added them all up, what would it be, a thousand or so reasons? I lost track a long time ago. I just shake my head and think how could Anyone vote for Obama given all we know about him and his 'comrades.'
I just figure with something every day, maybe most Americans will 'get it' by November 6, 2012. If not, it's on to Phase II as it will be our duty.
Preparing for Phase II, I remain your obdt svt,
“...And while I am in a condemning mood, where TF are the Republican CANDIDATES ON THIS?...”
Worrying about attacking each other.
It’s what we do, evidently.
I hope Herman Cain brings it up, but I’m not optimistic. Maybe Gingrich will.
Somebody needs to...especially in front of a CNN audience.
When you think you need to put the popcorn machine in the closet, that may be the time you need to keep it close at hand...;-)
And to Wayne...As so many have already iterated...
“Welcome to the party pal!!!”
I see donation mailers on the upswing.../sarc
But then again, being a life member, takes all the fun out of getting a dig or two into the process...
In the defense of Wayne LaPierre, he's been reporting on the BATFE Project Gunrunner and Fast and Furious going back to at least February 2011, and consistanly since then. Check out the Standing Guard article titled "BATFE Set Sights On Wrong Target" in the February 2011 edition of the American Rifleman, page 12. You may not have heard him publicly, but he's been out there preaching to anyone who will listen. Unfortunately in this administration, that would be equivalent to talking to the wall. But in the public domain, we're listening. Come November 2012, we'll make our case.
