NRA Puppet of the Week- Texas Governor Rick Perry

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

NRA_PotW_lg_RickPerry
 
You are famous for jogging while armed which sounds neither safe or smart. Your safety-less Ruger .380 has been known to discharge when dropped, say critics, and if you’re really out for snakes, why load hollow-point bullets instead of pellet-based snake shot? Speaking of neither safe or smart, you attended TrackingPoint’s debut of the first Precision Guided Firearm last year, a sniper rifle “capable of 1,200 yard precision shots” with which a “novice shooter can become an elite long-range marksman in minutes.” Why would you support a “can’t miss” sniper weapons with no defensive use ready made for insurrectionists, terrorists and hate groups? And you’re thinking of running for (gulp) president?
 
Shoot first, think later governor,you, RICK PERRY, are the NRA Puppet of the Week.

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

NRA_PotW_lg_JoniErnst
 
In light of the students, family members and even politicians who have died from gun violence since May, do you regret your gun-themed “Give me a shot!” TV ads? With three school-related shootings in two days and White House assailants, are the six rounds you fire in the ad, as you promise to “unload” on the Affordable Care Act, funny or respectful? Or sane? Even as the nation is horrified by the killers obtaining guns, you vow to oppose universal background checks if elected to the Senate. What?
 
Sleazy showoff trying to bring your “one trick” to Washington, YOU, JONI ERNST, are the NRA Puppet of the Week.

NRA Puppet of the Week–Chris Christie, New Jersey Governor-

Friday, September 12th, 2014

NRA_PotW_lg_ChrisChristie

 
It “simply defies common sense to believe that imposing a new and entirely arbitrary number of bullets that can be lawfully loaded into a firearm will somehow eradicate, or even reduce, future instances of mass violence,” you said while vetoing a bill to reduce the size of ammunition magazines this summer. Instead, you suggested a series of changes to New Jersey’s mental health system to help prevent future shootings. Right. It was James Holmes’ mental illness not the 50 to 60 shots a minute he got off that caused the Colorado movie theatre massacre!

NRA Puppet of the Week- John Snow with Outdoor Life

Friday, September 5th, 2014

NRA_PotW_lg_JohnSnow
 
There was a time when sportsmen resisted the NRA’s paranoid “urban warfare” rhetoric as anathema to outdoor life. But not anymore. This week, you railed against “those who seek to take our guns. And, believe me, if they could they would take them all.” There was also a time when outdoorsmen allowed animals respectful fair chase and relied on their skill. But not anymore. This week you lauded Safari International, which promotes killing of elephants and rhinos, for its use of the “can’t miss” TrackingPoint sniper rifle. Nice.
 
“Shooting editor” who has lost all outdoor ethics, You, JOHN SNOW, are the NRA Puppet of the Week

NRA Puppet of the Week- Kelly Riddell with Washington Times

Friday, August 29th, 2014

NRA_PotW_lg_KellyRiddell
 
Many do not consider your newspaper, the Washington Times, a valid news source given that it was founded by the Unification Church to fight Communism. But our quibble is with your article this week about crime in Chicago dropping due to more guns. First of all, 5 dead and 42 wounded by guns last weekend in Chicago, where NGVAC is located, is not exactly crime falling. But if it were, crime has fallen in Europe, Canada, Asia including Japan and China and even Estonia, which are devoid of “carriers.” Do U.S. sheriff wannabes stopping “bad guys” take credit for crime falling in the rest of the world too?

NRA Puppet of the Week- Kasey Hansen

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

NRA_PotW_lg_KASEY_HANSEN
 
You are pretty darn proud of your pink-plated Cobra 380 handgun, “Lucy,” which you carry to each of 14 different Salt Lake City schools where you teach special needs children. “I think every teacher should carry,” you tell the press, even though you admit “Iʼm not the best shot.” Of course if a shooting situation developed,”Lucy” would likely kill children in the process of “protecting” them thanks to panic and your lack of training. We won’t even talk about accidents that occur with children and the message children receive from a classroom with lethal weapons.
 
Clueless, irresponsible teacher who thinks she’s a cop, You, KASEY HANSEN, are the NRA Puppet of the Week

NRA Puppet of the Week- Marion Hammer

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

NRA_PotW_lg_Hammer
 
Most people think of you as the architect of Florida’s Stand Your Ground law that emboldened vigilantes like George Zimmerman and Michael Dunn. But you are also the brains behind Florida’s “Docs vs. Glocks” law recently deemed to be constitutional by a federal appeals court. “Physicians interrogating and lecturing parents and children about guns is not about gun safety. It is a political agenda to ban guns,” you explain.”Parents do not take their children to physicians for a political lecture against the ownership of firearms; they go there for medical care.” Yes including medical care for accidental shootings from the guns it is illegal to ask about.

NRA Puppet of the Week- Larry Pratt

Saturday, August 9th, 2014

NRA_PotW_lg_LarryPratt
 
Even though you’re with Gun Owners of America, you help the NRA by playing “bad cop” to its “good cop.” Examples? You say the Aurora shooting was an inside job and Justice Department officials prosecuted George Zimmerman to “build their own communist society.” Your group says Obamacare is a ruse to confiscate guns. So are mental health regulations which, you say, amount to “see a shrink, lose your guns.” What? You are even OK with assassination threats! When asked if politicians should fear that your members will shoot them you said “I’m kind of glad that’s in the back of their minds. Hopefully they’ll behave.”
 

Undisguised insurrectionist who makes the NRA look moderate, you LARRY PRATT are the NRA Puppet of the Week.

NRA Puppet of the Week- U.S. Circuit Judge Gerald Tjoflat

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

NRA_PotW_lg_GeraldTjoflat
 
“The act simply codifies that good medical care does not require inquiry or record- keeping regarding firearms when unnecessary to a patient’s care.” That is what you said this week in declaring Florida’s “Docs vs. Glocks” law restricting what doctors can ask patients about guns constitutional. No matter that organizations representing 11,000 state health providers, including the Florida chapters of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Family Physicians oppose the pro gun ruling.
 
Judge who thinks guns are none of doctors’ business–until their services are needed for gunshot wounds, you JUDGE GERALD TJOFLAT are the NRA Puppet of the Week.

NRA Puppet of the Week- Missouri State Senator Rob Schaaf SECOND AWARD

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

NRA_PotW_lg_RobSchaaf
 
In February you were NRA Puppet of the Week for blocking mandatory reporting of stolen guns. Why? It would amount to “telling law enforcement that I own it to begin with” you thundered and hence a registry. (“We are just a few Supreme Court justices away from losing our Second Amendment rights…and then they will come knocking on your door to come take away your gun,” you added at a public forum.)
 
Your anti-government paranoia has also made Missouri the only state in the union without an opioid drug registry to flag abusers and suppliers. “I’m protecting other people?s liberty,? you explained. Physician-trained lawmaker accepting gun and drug deaths as “the price of liberty”.
