NRA fires back, takes shots at Obama and Clinton

President Barack Obama

No matter which side one sympathizes with regarding the issue of gun control and the Second Amendment, the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) video on how to fight back against gun violence will stir emotions.  In the strongly worded 4:50-minute video, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, Jr., says no organization has been clearer in its stance that federal gun laws must be enforced.

Although the video, entitled “How to Stop Violent Crime,” does not address the subject of domestic terrorism and large-scale shootings,  it was released several weeks after the mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Ore. that left nine dead and nine injured.  Both President Barack Obama and Democratic Presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton use each new mass shooting as a platform to advocate for additional gun control legislation, including the most recent shooting in San Bernardino Calif., that left 14 dead and 21 injured.

LaPierre chastises Obama and Clinton for suggesting that more gun laws are needed when current federal gun laws are not being enforced.  He claims that if the current laws were enforced, gun violence would drop significantly.
