Wayne LaPierre on American Values

"Something is just not right. The core values that we believe in, the things we care about most, are slipping away." Wayne LaPierre spoke those words at the 2014 NRA Annual Meetings in Indianapolis, Indiana as he asked, "What in the world has gone wrong with our country?" LaPierre reminded that the good guys still exist, and that NRA is America's national movement to restore core American values. "We're the good guys — good, decent, honest men and women."

"I don't want to politicize an act of terrorism, but it is worth remarking upon," said David Remnick.

Editor of The New Yorker and former Washington Post reporter David Remnick suggested Monday night that the Senate gun control legislation would have made the Boston Marathon bombing “a hell of a lot more difficult to pull off.”

“I think a domestic question has to be asked is how do kids like [the Tsarnaev brothers] get guns?” Mr. Remnick asked host Charlie Rose. “Where are they getting side arms from?”

“It’s not, to me, and I don’t want to politicize an act of terrorism, but it’s, it is worth remarking upon, worth remarking upon, in that within a week’s time a very, very, very weak gun control bill gets defeated, in effect defeated in the Senate, we see yet another act which might have been a Hell of a lot more difficult to pull off with effective gun control,” he continued.

The Washington Times reported Tuesday that neither Tamerlan nor Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had valid permits to own firearms and neither of the brothers had obtained the handguns legally, according to authorities.
