Using a series of clips from past confrontations with the press and speeches over the years in which he predicted the course of the gun control effort that has become a gun prohibition movement, LaPierre threw punch after verbal punch.

While speaking at the National Rifle Association (NRA) convention on Friday, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott spoke his mind about the “true source of gun violence.”

Abbott pushed back on gun control advocates arguing that “the answer to gun violence is not to take guns away, the answer is to strengthen the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.”

Friday’s meeting was the first convention since the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, as well as the resulting activism in favor of gun control.

Can we not have both?"

Yet in a span of 48 hours in March, the three were responsible for gun safety lapses that put students in danger. The school police officer accidentally fired his gun in his Virginia office, sending a bullet through a wall into a middle school classroom.

They also won’t have to take 16 hours of firearms safety training currently required before carrying a gun in public.

Train WRECK: Alyssa Milano’s Terrible, Horrible, no Good, Very Bad NRA Protest had MUCH Fail

For some reason, Alyssa Milano took it upon herself to take part in a ‘protest’ of the NRA by the ‘No NRA or NoRA’ group at this year’s NRA Convention site, and it didn’t go so hot. Between a shockingly small turnout (some shots look to show a few dozen people, others show maybe 100, half of whom were journalists) and a good deal of missteps like Alyssa bringing armed security to the event, this group protest was a serious dumpster fire.
