Just in case ... the actual text is worth recording here:
My name is Jason Selvig and I'm from West Palm Beach, Florida, and I would like to say that I am sick and tired of the leftwing media and frankly, people in this room today spreading misinformation about Wayne LaPierre. Whenever there's a mass shooting, they all say that Wayne LaPierre isn't doing enough to stop these mass shootings, and even implying that Wayne LaPierre has played a part in making it easier for these shooters to get guns, to get weapons.
You heard it after Las Vegas, you heard it after Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, you heard it after Columbine, you heard it after Parkland, you heard it after Virginia Tech, you heard it after Sandy Hook, you heard it after El Paso, you heard it after Buffalo.
You kept hearing that Wayne LaPierre isn't doing enough, and frankly, that's not true. The NRA, under Wayne LaPierre's leadership, has provided thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families. And maybe these mass shooting would stop happening if we all thought a little bit more, and prayed a little bit more.
So I'm asking everyone in this room to think. To pray. Give your thoughts and your prayers, and your thoughts and your prayers, and your prayers and your thoughts, and if we give enough of these thoughts and these prayers these mass shootings will stop.
So, I want to thank you, Wayne LaPierre, for all your thoughts all your prayers.
America, America !
What's more traditional than fireworks on the Fourth of July!
It's early yet today:
"This doesn't happen here" said an uninformed source.
It's July (7) 11. Seems like a good day to emphasize the benefits of a well regulated militia. Any reason will do.
"We also have removed the sound of children screaming as the gunman enters the classroom. We consider this too graphic.”
... and not just a billion dollars, also a billion Thoughts and Prayers!
How can anyone place the blame of gun violence upon an inanimate object? Our problem is the growing rate of mental illness in the United States. We need to face this problem and work to resolve it should we truly desire to end gun violence.
More attention being paid to mental illness would help but it's wrong to blame the mentally ill or even the guns, The blame lies squarely on gun manufacturers who have been glorifying, promoting these weapons all over the world for ages. Hey ... we're dumping these killing machines everywhere as fast as possible, don't know who gets them, so you better arm yourself with ever increasing fire power Justin Case! We give a macho man, or a weak confused nutcase ... most are men ... a way to even the score with rapid fire!
If those lethal tools weren't around so much the crazies wouldn't have access to them so much either.
but that's s another world ...
