Wayne LaPierre -- not a pedophile...but possibly just as bad


An abstract of the study, titled "United States Gunshot Violence--Disturbing Trends," was presented on Sunday by researchers at the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) National Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, Fla. The study also found that states with higher numbers of firearm ownership had higher proportions of childhood gunshot wounds. 

"Handguns account for the majority of childhood gunshot wounds and this number appears to be increasing over the last decade," Arin Madenci, MD, MPH, the author's lead study, said in a statement issued by the AAP. "Furthermore, states with higher percentages of household firearm ownership also tended to have higher proportions of childhood gunshot wounds, especially those occurring in the home."

Just as bad as a pedophile? No, worse, I submit. To-wit:

Even the worst, most depraved pedophile would be hard-pressed to come up with 7,500 victims a year, every year, with 500 of those victims killing themselves. Such a pedophile would be apprehended by the law, on a much-much-sooner-than-later basis.

But Wayne LaPierre? Not only does he continue to walk the streets a free man (and fly in chartered jets and wear fine tailored suits), but he appears regularly on the teevee, receiving handsome emoluments for interviews and speaking engagements. You think Westley Allan Dodd could have commanded such nauseating fawnage? Not on your nelly. Washington state hanged Dodd, a remorseless sociopathy who had the last vestige of decency to desire execution on an expedited basis.

No, unlike Dodd, LaPierre is proud of his record, revels in the attention, and seeks more every time the market products of his lobby front group perpetrate another massacre. Wayne LaPierre would have to improve considerably to be merely as bad as a pedophile.

It would be irresponsible not to ask if you have any proof that LaPierre is not a pedophile?
