NRA’s LaPierre Calls Out President Obama As Chicago Nears 600 Homicides

posted on October 14, 2016

“The president’s biggest lie.” That’s what NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre called Chicago as he blasted President Barack Obama for inaction in his own hometown. With just about every gun law the president can dream of already on the books in Chicago, the Windy City is rapidly approaching 600 homicides for the year—the total currently stands at 578. 

As LaPierre told an audience in Bakersfield, Calif., the president could save lives if he wanted to. “The president could pick up the phone and order his U.S. attorneys to flip that town upside-down and prosecute every felon with a gun, criminal gang member with a gun and drug dealer with a gun,” LaPierre said. 

But our commander-in-chief doesn’t seem to care about making Chicago safer. “President Obama refuses to do that because it doesn’t fit the agenda of the elite ruling class in this country,” LaPierre noted.
