Giving the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre all the respect he deserves

CNN: Responding to criticism from the National Rifle Association over Connecticut’s new gun laws, Gov. Dan Malloy argued the pro-gun group’s executive vice president, Wayne LaPierre, is simply blowing smoke.

“Wayne reminds me of the clowns at the circus - they get the most attention. That’s what he’s paid to do,” Malloy said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

The Democratic governor on Thursday signed into law some of the nation’s strictest gun regulations, following the state’s devastating school shooting in December in Newtown, which left 20 children and six adults dead.

The new Connecticut laws include the addition of more than 100 weapons to the state’s list of banned assault weapons - including the semiautomatic Bushmaster rifle, one of the firearms used in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. The law also bans the sale of magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, as well as armor-piercing bullets. Buyers will need a certificate to buy ammunition.

It also requires background checks for all gun purchases.
See, this is the way you deal with political bullies — you smack them right straight in the nose in front of everyone, to demonstrate how powerless they really are. Wayne has no answer for this, the law’s getting passed despite his best efforts. It’s over in Connecticut and LaPierre’s just going to have to shut up and take it

Here’s hoping the weakling dems who roll over every time LaPierre casts a sideways glance get the message; the man is a clown. You’re letting yourself get pushed around by a freakin’ clown.
