Fox Anchor to NRA’s LaPierre: You’re ‘Ridiculous’
Fox, criticizing the NRA? The beloved of the RNC criticizing another beloved?
With Mark Kelly renewing his call for stricter gun control, LaPierre even took heat from Fox’s Chris Wallace, who blasted LaPierre’s contention that American children face the same dangers as President Obama’s daughters as “ridiculous.” “Tell that to the people in Newtown,” responded the NRA chief. LaPierre also took aim at universal background checks, saying, “it’s a fraud to call it universal. The criminals are never going to comply.” Over at ABC, Paul Krugman chimed in, calling the NRA “an insane organization.” “They have this vision that we’re living in a Mad Max movie and that nothing can be done about it, that America cannot manage unless everybody’s prepared to shoot intruders.”
One expects Krugman to call a spade a spade but not Chris Wallace. Not Fox. Maybe it is the end of the world as we know it. But I feel fine.
