Freedom Hating NRA Bodyguards-Manhandle Journalists So LaPierre Couldn't Be Questioned or Filmed

NRA Takes Congress

Dana Milbank:

"When he and his colleagues stepped off the elevator in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Wednesday morning and found TV cameras waiting in the hallway, LaPierre's bodyguards swung into action. One of them, in blatant violation of congressional rules, bumped and body-checked journalists out of the way so they couldn't film LaPierre or question him as he walked. 'You don't have jurisdiction here!' a cameraman protested as an NRA goon pushed him against a wall. After the melee, congressional officials informed the NRA officials that, in the halls of Congress, they had to follow congressional procedures -- which prohibit manhandling. This must have come as a surprise to the gun lobbyists, whose swagger seems to suggest that they are, in fact, in control of Congress.

3. And yet some pro-gun posters wonder why we refer to NRA THUGS?

Why the hell didn't Capitol Police throw this vermin out?

4. They are in control of Congress. Check out the pledge of allegiance to protect NRA markets abroad

for assault weapons, which Rand Paul was pushing during the 112th Congress and is now in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10022252598
