WATCH: NRA’s Wayne LaPierre Plays The Fear Card–‘They’re Coming’

Sensing that the tide is turning against his organization and the merchants of death he represents in the gun industry, National Rifle Association (NRA) Executive Vice President resorted to the only tactic he and his despicable ammosexual cult have left: Fear.

Appearing on “Face the Nation,” LaPierre  said “we all mourn” for victims of the Orlando shooting, “but we face a terrorist challenge where they are on the verge of overwhelming us.”

Then, as expected, LaPierre tried to blame President Obama and anyone else who calls for sensible gun control legislation such as universal background checks and not letting suspected terrorists purchase weapons. LaPierre said that was merely an attempt to “divert” attention away from the real threat:

“You can’t save the country with politics. It’s all being politicized with a politically correct White House’s nose and fingers in areas they don’t belong.”

Politicizing the gun issue. Yeah, the NRA would never stoop to that level as they funnel money and lobbying favors to lawmakers as a way of bribing them to never consider any legislation that might help control the flood of guns in this country.

After that, LaPierre then pivoted back to spreading fear, saying of terrorists who might acquire guns:

“We need to look right in the face of what these people are, they don’t care about the law. I mean, these bad guys we’re facing, they don’t say, ‘Oh gosh, they passed a law. Oh gosh, I don’t think I can do it.’ It’s like what we’re doing with this debate on the hill right now, it’s like they are trying to stop a freight train with a piece of Kleenex.”

Here’s the solution the NRA chief suggested for all that ails America:

“The fact is, we need to face what’s coming. They’re trying to kill us. They’re not going to attack hard targets… They’re going to go for shopping malls, they’re going to go for churches. The fact is, we need vigilance, we need preparedness. We need a full court press on personal protection.

“Let’s get the bad guys off the street, attack the terrorists and leave the good guys alone.”

One thing I’ve often wondered about: How does Wayne LaPierre and others of his ilk sleep at night with all of the innocent blood on their hands?

Watch LaPierre turn to fear instead of logic:
