This one was bound to be a crowd-pleaser, what with all of the “advice” gun-control activists have been so very kind enough to dispense on our behalf lately, like our esteemed vice president recommending that we “fire two blasts” outside our homes with a shotgun in the case of an assailant, or a Colorado legislator venturing that us ladies induce vomiting to deter a potential attacker. Brilliant.

LaPierre also has a few things to say about the bill mandating background checks on all gun buyers that got the go-ahead from the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this week — they most definitely will oppose a law that puts undue burdens on and limits the freedoms of law-abiding citizens. “Our Founding Fathers knew that without the Second Amendment and that freedom, all of our freedoms could be in jeopardy… If you aren’t free to protect yourself when government puts its thumb on that freedom, then you aren’t free at all.”
