David Keene, the unhinged leader of the National Rifle Association not named Wayne LaPierre, knows that guns don’t kill people, meany black presidents kill people.
Just listen to all the carnage
President King Obama nearly caused Keene and his family by letting his loose lips, instead of high capacity clips, shoot wildly all over place.
Via Think Progress:
On a right-wing talk show on Thursday, David Keene, the president of the National Rifle Association, blamed President Obama and the left for what he says have been hundreds of death threats made against him and his family.
What this reflects are two things. One is the uncivil way in which idealogues on the left in this country go after their enemies. The second thing it shows is the reflection of the left and the President of the United States’ attempt to demonize and blame those who disagree with them for everything that he doesn’t like.
Well, what else can you expect from a secret Muslim Terrorist Socialist HITLER from Kenya??
But please, David Keene, by all means elaborate on this NOBAMA feller’s evil plot to massacre your family by enacting four perfectly sane, reasonable proposals to prevent crazed madmen (like yourself) from murdering Kindergartners with enough Rambo-sized firepower to make Sylvester Stallone cower in fear.
Obama, in an emotional White House ceremony, outlined four major legislative proposals aimed at curbing what he called “the epidemic of gun violence in this country”: universal background checks for all gun buyers, a crackdown on gun trafficking, a ban on military-style assault weapons and a ban on ammunition magazines holding more than 10 bullets.
I, for one, do not want to live in a world where crazy people and violent criminals cannot easily access military style assault weapons that mow down scores of people in the blink of an eye. Because the only thing worse than actual death by guns is fake death threats by internet, amiright?
But don’t worry America because David Keene is not done there!
Keene also appeared on NBC’s Today Show on Thursday, where he told host Savannah Guthrie that an NRA video advertisement which accused Obama of being an “elitist hypocrite” for opposing guns in schools while allowing his own children to be protected by Secret Service “wasn’t about the president’s daughters.”
“We believe that every parent ought to be able to be comfortable, knowing that their children are safe, and if that requires armed security, it’s as good for the working man as it is for the president.”
And who would know more about concerned parents keeping their children safe than the proud, loving father of a tried-and-convicted road rage shooter?
NRA President David Keene’s son, David Michael Keene, was convicted and sentenced to 10 years in prison for a 2002 road-rage incident in which he fired a handgun from his moving vehicle at another car on the George Washington Memorial Parkway in Virginia. The round fired shattered the rear window of the victim’s car, lodging into the driver’s seat, coming within inches of hitting him, according to police reports.
Oh, now I remember! Guns don’t kill people, sons of NRA presidents do.
