George H.W. Bush Resignation Letter to NRA
This is fascinating. In 1995, George H.W. Bush resigned his membership from the NRA. NRA (then) vice-president Wayne LaPWayne justified attacks against federal agents. This was after Ruby Ridge, Waco and the Oklahoma City bombing. It is good to remind property just how heartless LaPierre truly is.
I was outraged when, even in the wake of the Oklahoma City tragedy, Mr. Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of N.R.A., defended his attack on federal agents as "jack-booted thugs." To attack Secret Service agents or A.T.F. people or any government law enforcement people as "wearing Nazi bucket helmets and black storm trooper uniforms" wanting to "attack law abiding citizens" is a vicious slander on good people. Al Whicher, who served on my [ United States Secret Service ] detail when I was Vice President and President, was killed in Oklahoma City. He was no Nazi. He was a kind man, a loving parent, a man dedicated to serving his country -- and serve it well he did. In 1993, I attended the wake for A.T.F. agent Steve Willis, another dedicated officer who did his duty. I can assure you that this honorable man, killed by weird cultists, was no Nazi.Think about this for a moment. The current head of the NRA called federal law enforcement officers Maxis and defended their killers. Wayne LaPierre is a morally depraved man.
