NRA Chief LaPierre: You Can’t Trust This White House (Video)

Chief Executive of the NRA, Wayne LaPierre, told Chris Wallace today on FOX News Sunday that you can’t trust this White House:

Chris Wallace: There’s no indication. There’s nothing anyone in this administration has said taht indicates they’re going to have a (gun) registry.

Wayne LaPierre: “And ‘ObamaCare’ wasn’t a tax until they needed it to be a tax. I don’t think you can trust these people.

Good point.

The Hill has more on LaPierre’s comments.

When pressed by host Chris Wallace on the fact that the White House has said nothing about a universal registry, LaPierre responded, “And ‘ObamaCare’ wasn’t a tax until they needed it to be a tax. I don’t think you can trust these people.

LaPierre was referring to the administration arguing the healthcare law amounts to a tax before the Supreme Court â?? an argument the high court agreed with in upholding the individual-mandate portion of the law as a valid use of taxing power.

On Sunday, LaPierre continued his efforts to stem momentum for new gun-control legislation in the wake of the school shooting in Newtown, Conn. He contended that a universal background check would not be workable, in part because of the lack of digitized mental health records and the fact that criminals would not seek out guns in that fashion.
