What is Wrong with People? (GOA Edition)
Larry Pratt of the Gun Owners of America:
“The Second Amendment was designed for people just like the President and his administration,” Pratt told radio host Roger Fredinburg. “And yes, if the New York Times and the Rolling Stone, and whoever else wants to have a hissy fit, yes, our guns are in our hands for people like those in our government right now that think they wanna go tyrannical on us, we’ve got something for ’em. That’s what it’s all about.”
“The Second Amendment’s not about hunting, it’s not about target shooting, it’s about Democrats who want to take our rights,” Pratt said.
One could say a lot of thing about such a quote, but the one that leaps immediately to mind: Pratt needs a remedial political science course focusing on what real “tyranny” looks like.
Of course, Pratt is head of an organization that thinks the NRA is too compromising on gun control, so that puts his ideological bent into perspective.
