For a little background on the political tactics and rhetoric of the NRA, check out this 6-minute speech from 2011, wherein NRA chief Wayne LaPierre claims to have the REAL reason that Obama didn’t do any regulation of guns in his term.

Completely absurd sounding, but it’s how you keep things going, when you don’t have anything specific to get your members enthused about.
