“[N]ot only is [LaPierre’s op-ed on reasons to own guns] crazy stuff — and it really is outright, flat-out committable stuff — but worse, it has heavy racial overtones… so much so that I think it’s incumbent upon the Republican Party leaders, such as they are, to stand up and disavow Wayne LaPierre now, disavow the statement, says, It’s against everything we believe in, we do not scare people with images of Latino gangs and — and looting by looters after a storm, things that conjure up nothing but racial overtones.”
