In a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) today, National Rifle Association (NRA) Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said that President Obama’s decision to not institute gun control is part of a “massive conspiracy," which includes members of the U.S. Supreme Court and the UN.
LaPierre said: "The president will offer the Second Amendment lip service and hit the campaign trail saying he’s actually been good for the Second Amendment. But it’s a big fat stinking lie! It’s all part of a massive Obama conspiracy to deceive voters and destroy the Second Amendment in our country.”
LaPierre added: “Obama himself is no fool. So when he got elected, they concocted a scheme to stay away from the gun issue, lull gun owners to sleep and play us for fools in 2012. Well, gun owners are not fools and we are not fooled.”
LaPierre then went after members of the Supreme Court and United Nations: “Sotomayor, Kagan, Fast & Furious, the United Nations, executive orders. Those are the facts we face today… President Obama and his cohorts, yeah, they’re going to deny their conspiracy to fool gun owners. Some in the liberal media, they are already probably blogging about it. But we don’t care because the lying, conniving Obama crowd can kiss our Constitution!”
LaPierre did not mention that Obama lifted the ban on weapons in National Parks in 2010.
