- There are many politicians willing to sacrifice the Second Amendment as the first step in the homogenization of American culture.
- In American Rifleman magazine in 2000 (Swenson, Michele (2004). Democracy Under Assault: Theopolitics, Incivility and Violence on the Right. Sol Ventures Press. p. 149. ISBN 9780976678809. ; Grossman, Arnold (2006). One Nation Under Guns: An Essay on an American Epidemic. Fulcrum Publishing. p. 64.

- During the second Obama term, however, additional threats are growing. Latin American drug gangs have invaded every city of significant size in the United States. Phoenix is already one of the kidnapping capitals of the world, and though the states on the U.S./Mexico border may be the first places in the nation to suffer from cartel violence, by no means are they the last.
The president flagrantly defies the 2006 federal law ordering the construction of a secure border fence along the entire Mexican border. So the border today remains porous not only to people seeking jobs in the U.S., but to criminals whose jobs are murder, rape, robbery and kidnapping. Ominously, the border also remains open to agents of al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations. Numerous intelligence sources have confirmed that foreign terrorists have identified the southern U.S. border as their path of entry into the country.
When the next terrorist attack comes, the Obama administration won’t accept responsibility. Instead, it will do what it does every time: blame a scapegoat and count on Obama’s “mainstream” media enablers to go along.
A heinous act of mass murder—either by terrorists or by some psychotic who should have been locked up long ago—will be the pretext to unleash a tsunami of gun control.
No wonder Americans are buying guns in record numbers right now, while they still can and before their choice about which firearm is right for their family is taken away forever.
After Hurricane Sandy, we saw the hellish world that the gun prohibitionists see as their utopia. Looters ran wild in south Brooklyn.

- ...there's no telling how far Obama will go to dismantle our freedoms...reshape America. And when he's finished, he intends to go out with the coronation of Hillary Rodham Clinton. Yeah, I have to tell you eight years of one demographically-symbolic president is enough.

Quotes about LaPierre
- Hard to believe this is real. Every GOPer should read and decide if this delusional person will call the shots.

- I don’t know where to start…yeah, it’s responsible to own a gun; it’s responsible to protect your family; it’s responsible to have a handgun in your house; it’s responsible to have a shotgun; it’s responsible to have a hunting rifle, but Wayne LaPierre is suggesting if you are against Americans being able to own assault weapons with 30-round, high-capacity magazines…and he said, Hispanic drug gangs are coming to America. And those terrible people in Brooklyn. Don’t go out after dark. I mean, this is so laced with racial overtones…the Republican Party, if they were smart, their leaders today would condemn it, but they’re not smart; they’re scared, and if they keep running scared they’re going to lose more votes, they’re going to get hammered in future elections if they allow this clown to continue to lead them around by their nose. They’re shameful; they need to be leaders.

- Perhaps we know Wayne LaPierre is wrong about good guys, and bad guys, and guns. I’m sure many of us find him hard to trust given his obvious use of racial demonization to spread fear that will lead to buying guns.

- Maybe at one time, the NRA was a legitimate nonprofit dedicated to the interests of sport-oriented hunters. Whether that is your cup or tea or not, the NRA had a legitimate function. Now, it is defending an imaginary version of Second Amendment rights against imaginary threats. It is not serving the interests of hunters or even most gun owners. Instead, it is serving the weapons manufacturers. And under LaPierre, it has turned into a nutty, survivalist organization drawing on incendiary imagery and fears. The NRA’s time is over, and LaPierre’s time has definitely come and gone.
- Yeah. Racist. Not even something up for argument. Plus, what the fu*k is that supposed to make Hilary Clinton if she were to become President? A demographically symbolic public representative of the majority demographic in our country? Poor Wayne LaPierre and his expensive crap-looking suit. A charlatan, a misogynist, and a racist to boot.
- Walter Einenkel, April 13, 2015, at Daily Kos (Einenkel, Walter (April 13, 2015). "Wayne LaPierre just called President Obama a 'demographically symbolic' president". Daily Kos. ; Jaffe, Alexandra (April 15, 2015). "NRA's Wayne LaPierre: Obama, Clinton 'demographically-symbolic'". CNN. )
- Wow, I guess your dog-whistle wasn't working, and you just went with a regular whistle.
- Maybe, conservatives are done with dog-whistle politics. After all, NRA chief Wayne LaPierre traded his dog whistle for an air horn at a recent gathering of the gun faithful in Washington, D.C.
- LaPierre can try to reframe the NRA’s history, but he’s not fooling anyone. We know the NRA’s history. We’ve taken notes. Those who call out the NRA’s racism are right on the money.
