Dear Wayne: Sorry I couldn't make it to the annual meeting. I'm a Life Member and I try to get there every year. But this year is different. If I showed up you'd tried to get me to help you fight a "culture war." But if there is a war going on, you represent the wrong side.
I just watched your speech. I think it's time you dropped this nonsense about protecting our "rights." Be honest and tell it like it is. The reason you're opposed to background checks has absolutely nothing to do with the Second Amendment. It's about making it as easy as possible for everyone to own a gun. More guns means more profits for the gun companies, and that's who you really represent.
In 2011, Ruger's stock was trading at $21 a share, now it's at $51. Smith & Wesson's stock was three bucks a share, today it's almost nine. I remember after the 2010 elections when it looked like the Obama administration was going to be toast, gun dealers like myself couldn't give away the inventory. Now we can't keep anything on the shelves. You keep referring to the president as an enemy of the gun industry. The truth is that Barack Obama is the best salesman the industry ever had.
Ending sentences that say it all:
For all your talk about defending liberty Wayne, I'll give you something more important to defend: the young children whose lives always seem to take a back seat to how many guns you can get Americans to buy. I'm talking about children at Sandy Hook, a 4-year-old in New York, a 2-year-old in Kentucky. There's something immoral about denying any connection between the deaths of children and the explosion in gun sales that you claim show how much we love our freedom. I'd rather have those kids alive, even if it costs me more than a few bucks in gun sales. MORE HERE: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mike-weisser/open-letter-to-wayne-lapi_b_3219807.html
I had to make a new video of "GOP and NRA Do A Victory Dance" because the copyright gestapo at youtube said THE CHURCH BELLS in the previous video was COPYRIGHTED. That's right, church bells apparently are owned by "Slavia-Integrity", sound recording administered by: 7:20 The Orchard Music ???

Even though I don’t believe violent video games are solely responsible for the mass shootings that have become an almost monthly occurrence in the U.S I do think that they play a part.

"... what I'm asking for is (that) you consider a stronger assault weapons ban, elimination of the sale of semi-automatic weapons, restrictions on the size of magazine clips, number of rounds, extend background checks and also please let us do some gun research that's real... Allow me as a medical doctor, when I see a patient or when my colleagues see a patient, when I educate them on the effects of alcohol or tobacco, safe sex, motor vehicle accidents, can I please talk to them about the risks of gun violence? Please?" Dr. William Begg
An emotional Begg also told the families of those who were killed in the massacre, "On behalf of the ER, we tried our best. We tried our best."

The mentally challenged weapon enthusiasts, among us, are ablaze with paranoia pertaining to delusions that their guns will be taken away. Of course IT'S NOT TRUE, yet they are all over the media threatening that if the only tool that makes them feel important and all powerful (their weaponry) is taken from their pathetic, cold hands; they will start to SHOOT PEOPLE. These Fear Monger types are like a cancer upon society and they wish to spread their malignancy far and wide across this country of ours. They HATE (or they pretend to hate) and they have something to sell that will make them in their misconceptions, either famous or rich or both (unfortunately, it sometimes works, as in the case of Alex Jones). Their hope is to get others to HATE because it can blind the weak-minded enough to buy their nonsense and join them in kind of a, blaze of glory, fallacy. This video shows four examples of some of the worst of the worst whose desire is to have their egos massaged and they accomplish this, by using FEAR! thinkingblue

Down the Rabbit Hole With Fox News’ Latest Obama Gun Conspiracy By: Sarah Jones
Wondering why you can’t go anywhere without bumping into a ranting, screaming crazy person nattering on about Obama taking their freedom away? It’s Fox acid.
Come down the rabbit hole with a recent Fox News article titled, “UN gun control treaty will reveal gun laws Obama really supports” to break down the anatomy of the Fox News Obama’s coming for our guns lie. Turns out, the very narrow ledge of “reality” they preach over is buttressed on nada but “feelings” that lead to vague conspiracy theories.
John Lott starts off badly with these faulty assertions:
"The Obama administration is undoubtedly the most hostile administration to gun ownership in US history, with Obama having personally supported bans of handguns and semi-automatic weapons before becoming president. And remember the recent scandal where the Obama administration was caught allowing guns go to Mexican drug gangs, hoping it would help push for gun control laws."
Okay, so wow. If you believed all of that, you’d be paranoid too.
Trouble is, this is a lie upon a lie upon a lie. The first link “proving” Obama is the most hostile administration on gun ownership goes to a John Lott blog post titled, “President Obama’s Anti-Gun Agenda Shows No Sign of Stopping.” Only Lott shows no signs of Obama’s actual policy-based anti-gun agenda. He can’t show policy because it’s not true.The mentally challenged weapon enthusiasts, among us, are ablaze with paranoia... more

Once Upon A Time, on July 27, 1981, a little boy went shopping with his mother at the Sears store in the Hollywood Florida Mall and never came home.
A beginning of a story that could have been my story; you see, I shopped at the Sears store several times a week. I lived in the neighborhood, as did Revé, John and Adam Walsh; my son was also in the same class as Adam at the St. Mark's Lutheran school. The news of Adam’s kidnapping and murder hit me very hard. I would look at my son and feel so grateful that this, the most horrific, devastating fate that a parent could ever endure, did not happen to me. That feeling didn’t make me feel lucky or special; it just made me realize that in this life, with a blink of an eye, you can be hit with a devastating blow that will alter the path of your short existence for the remainder of your days on this Earth.
After the abhorrent and gruesome incident that took place on December 14th 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Connecticut, my thoughts turned back to the time when Adam, a little boy, who because he became separated from his mother for a few short moments, was projected into defenselessness in a world full of demons and monsters. As with the children of Newtown but instead of a separation from safety to horror they were already subjected to terror just by living in a Nation who allowed weapons of war to be bought and sold by its citizens like so many pieces of candy.
I have been blogging on these dangerous laws that our lawmakers pass with hardly a thought, for some time now. A few examples below:

The only reward I get in trying to spread the word-- that semi-automatic weapons or concealed weapons or guns in general that can be waved around with little or no regulation, GUNS, WEAPONS that can cause devastating misery through massacres in which many people can be murdered at once within minutes-- is that it allowed me to voice my anger but nothing else, it's like spitting in the wind.
Deaf Ears, so the saying goes, is what all the opinions against gun violence, fell upon. A gnawing gut question keeps circling my brain… “WHY?” A WHY, that no one seems to want to answer, not truthfully anyway.
In the case of Adam Walsh, his dad John Walsh did not allow the “WHY?” to linger on, he was angry that there were no mechanisms or databases in place for the immediate search and rescue of kidnapped and exploited children, he set out to change it.
After hearing the convoluted thoughts of Wayne LaPierre (CEO of NRA) on TV the other day, I believe that he and the many others who share such a mindset are the reason for the gun violence in our country. He and his fellow 5th column co-conspirators (I label them this, not because they deliberately want to destroy Democracy but because they don’t care if it is destroyed, money is the bottom-line) are responsible for the deaths (indirectly or maybe not so indirectly) of so many 'innocents' (all of us who want only to live in peace). Please watch the video '26 Bells' from NBC, without a doubt the saddest reflection of how our American Leaders have turned their backs on our precious children.
Terrorism is well-established here in America, not by suicide bombers but by maniacs with blood on their minds, who can get ahold of a semi-automatic weapon with no effort WHATSOEVER and that is frightening. thinkingblueOnce Upon A Time, on July 27, 1981, a little boy went shopping with his mother at the... more
As I see these faces, hear these voices, read these stories over and over again, I am not overcome by sadness, which would seem rational, I suppose. No, instead, I feel anger. I am angry that this could happen in the first place. I am angry that these innocent lives – children and adult alike (though admittedly the “children” aspect seems to add far more weight to the subject) – were taken at all, let alone in the manner of desperate anguish and unfathomable fear of which they must have experienced in their final moments, while at the hands of an individual whose empathy-less, fractured mind was allowed the means to do so.

They did all they could to stop the carnage.
Brave educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School risked everything and gave their very lives to stop crazed shooter Adam Lanza and shield innocent children from the hail of gunfire.
Lanza had arrived with murder on his mind at 9:30 a.m. Friday, but found the doors locked.
The 20-year-old would not be deterred and unleashed a barrage of bullets, seemingly at random to shatter a front window and climb inside.
Two of the teachers — Victoria Leigh Soto, 27, and Anne Marie Murphy, 52 — actually turned themselves into human shields to protect their young students after Lanza invaded their classrooms and cruelly opened fire.
The fusillade began when school administrators were just starting a morning meeting. Suddenly, they heard the sick “Pop! Pop! Pop!” of gunfire.
Principal Dawn Hochsprung reacted like a lioness protecting her cubs. She ran out of the office and lunged at Lanza — and died when he trained his gun on her and opened fire.
