Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference Thursday, the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre challenged President Barack Obama to a one-on-one debate on the issue of gun control and gun rights.
LaPierre denounced the CNN “so-called” town hall Obama gave in January. The NRA was invited to that town hall, but declined the invitation. Instead, LaPierre invited Obama to a debate with “no pre-screened questions and no gasbags answers.”
“You know, President Obama, he’s never going to debate me on guns,” LaPierre said. “His knowledge on that issue couldn’t fill a thimble and he knows it. I would clean his clock and he knows it.”
“So he’ll keep hiding behind his podium in rigged appearances, like all the other truth-dodging politicians, and then he’ll lecture us on what’s wrong with our rights,” LaPierre said. “While day by day all over this country, more and more people grow more and more disgusted, enraged and determined to just throw them all out.”
