“You Can’t Make This Crap Up”: It’s Official, The NRA President Loses His Ever-Loving Mind

From the you-can’t-make-this-crap-up files, David Keene, the president of the National Rifle Association (NRA), is blaming President Obama and “the left” for death threats against him and his family and:

What this reflects are two things. One is the uncivil way in which idealogues on the left in this country go after their enemies. The second thing it shows is the reflection of the left and the President of the United States’ attempt to demonize and blame those who disagree with them for everything that he doesn’t like.

This from the group who released an ad that targeted the president’s daughters.

Oh, and about all that blaming and demonizing? Here’s what Obama said about the NRA when he announced his proposals to curb gun violence:

If you want to buy a gun — whether it’s from a licensed dealer or a private seller — you should at least have to show you are not a felon or somebody legally prohibited from buying one. This is common sense. And an overwhelming majority of Americans agree with us on the need for universal background checks — including more than 70 percent of the National Rifle Association’s members, according to one survey. So there’s no reason we can’t do this.

Yes, how dare the president blame and demonize the NRA by pointing out they’re ignoring the gun owners they claim to represent?

As for the “hundreds” of death threats Keene claims to have received? Well, there are probably police reports somewhere.
