The NRA is fear mongering again, coming up with more and more ridiculous conspiracy theories to get the idiots all riled up so they’ll stockpile more guns and ammo.
The question is, does LaPierre really believe this BS? I don’t think he does, but he knows selling the conspiracy theory to the gullible gun nut fools will drive up sales. And that’s what it’s all about.
National Rifle Association (NRA) Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre relied on numerous falsehoods to claim that President Obama will move to ban sales of all firearm ammunition before he leaves office, thus making “the very real nightmare of every single gun owner in this country” a reality.
In the May issue of the NRA’s magazine, America’s 1st Freedom, LaPierre wrote, “President Barack Obama is setting the table to ban your ammunition — all of it,” and claimed that “the remaining two years of Obama’s term pose the greatest threat ever to the Second Amendment and our freedom.”
LaPierre imagined a ludicrous scheme where “two fatal turns of events” would lead the EPA to ban all lead ammunition and, subsequently, the Obama administration to ban all non-lead ammunition. According to LaPierre, “The president’s bureaucrats at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are partnering with private enviro-radicals to ban lead projectiles — including all hunting bullets — as hazardous.”
Despite the fact that the EPA has given no indication that it is preparing regulations on lead ammunition, LaPierre insisted that the agency is still seeking a ban.
