Hey, Wayne! You Blew It!

LaPierre of NRA revealed a little too much to Lars Larson in this interview--specifically, that Congressional DEMOCRATS made the offer to amend their (current) attack on the First Amendment.

Larson nails LaPierre to the wall. LaPierre blew the call and it's obvious.

Frankly, it's about time that the NRA Board think about asking Wayne to retire. His "Boogeyman" pitch is getting old and worn, a bit like LaPierre himself. Yes, NRA's ILA does an excellent job, and yes, NRA has fought the good fight successfully.

But LaPierre is using the (D) talking point tactic of Scaring People. And he uses it all the time. ALL the time. He could change a few words and be the flak for AARP.

Time for a change.


Morrissey had more on the legislation (called the "Disclose" Act) which is kinda interesting to bloggers who are also NRA members.

If the Democrats in Congress wanted to ensure that the FEC would not investigate political speech by bloggers, they would have written their exemptions to include bloggers instead of just traditional media outlets. The purposeful lack of exemption for bloggers looks ominous indeed — and could be used to harass smaller, unfunded bloggers out of the realm of political debate.

Well. The Act has been pulled, temporarily. Seems that the NRA deal derailed it--for the time being.
