  •  I really do think this behavior will backfire (24+ / 0-)

    on LaPierre and the NRA.  I don't mean this appalling stunt with the consultant.  I mean his public pronouncements.

    Remember when a certain half-term governor got her own reality series?  It backfired, especially with her core constituency, when she went hunting.   For caribou, was it?  She was with her father and a hunting guide.  Aside from the frivolity of paying for a helicopter and hunting guide, she demonstrably didn't know how to handle her weapon, she hadn't checked the sight before shooting at game, she shot at an animal on a ridgeline, etc.  I'm no expert on hunting, but it was great fun reading the comments of dedicated hunters who were disgusted she would shoot at an animal on a ridgeline -- with the real possibility that the wounded animal would go the other direction, suffering, and with the hunter unable to find and kill it "humanely."  

    This quitting governor was outed as a fraud in what she thought was her big Hollywood close-up.

    In the same way, LaPierre is speaking and acting very unlike a true hunting sportsman.  Assault rifles and all that crap.

    A 47% return on investment--that's pretty doggoned good!
