"I was basically under presidential threat without presidential security in terms of the number of threats I was getting,"

At this point most rational individuals would ponder their life choices and try to figure out why so many, many people want to kill them.

But not you.

He SAYS that's why he used it - but he was using it like 6-8 months AFTER those school shootings.

In other words, it was just another lie.

His personal assistant who stole $23K from her last job also stole $40K from the NRA but they aren't going to the adverse action because she'll pay it back.

Man, imagine working at a non-profit where you know you can do anything you want and money will still roll in?

Assistant Attorney General Monica Connell said in opening remarks that LaPierre's use of "Illusions" was a clear conflict of interest and violation of rules surrounding the NRA's nonprofit status. LaPierre did not disclose his free trips aboard the boat, owned by Hollywood producer David McKenzie. Meanwhile, the NRA continues to pay McKenzie $1 million a month for media projects, Connell said.

For anyone else who was wondering what the story here is.

Those threats were so scary that he waited like six months for peak summer yachting season to hide on that luxury yacht with a full crew to sail, clean, and cook for him.

You could almost feel something. But they did this to themselves. When your job is protecting gun rights, and gun owners think your assholes. You've gone to far.

It wasn't the gunfire that had him running and hiding out on a yacht in the middle of nowhere.

It was the subpoenas and depositions.

ZeroPly: Natalie Portmanteau: Wayne Lapierre is a massive piece of shiat.

He's basically that one lawyer who's the most wretched evil remorseless soulless son-of-a-biatch on the planet, except when he's YOUR lawyer, and then you're good with how things have worked out.


He seems like the type of lawyer that if he's defending you, you're already a piece of shiat.

Curious to know whether he's ever been photographed with either Weinstein or Epstein.

Gee, you'd almost think that LaPierre was worried that other folks might think *he* was the bad guy.

And think about that religious saying, "he who lives by the sword..."

McKenzie, an Emmy-winning producer and president of the production company Associated Television International Inc., is a prominent figure in James' lawsuit. The producer is not explicitly named in the lawsuit but is the "principal stakeholder in several businesses that have business relationships with the NRA" that received over $100 million from the NRA, accordingto reporting from the Wall Street Journal last summer.

You also have to wonder about who he was afraid of.

Remember, he at first issued a press release that sounded like the country needed gun reform ... and then walked it back and said we needed to arm teachers.  He might've been afraid of the gun manufacturers afraid he'd slip up like that again.

A gun is all he needs to defend himself. He can be the good guy with a gun and all will be safe.
