    Chris Wallace was born into the Washington elite and is as biased as his father was. He was clearly out to make the NRA look bad and interrupting sure didn't help his cause. He and Gregory could easily have changed places.

    I'm sorry, but it seemed to me like WLP could not directly answer some of the questions asked of him without going back to his talking points. He sounded exactly like a politician. I mean really, what does curbing gang violence have to do with answering a question about stopping mass shooters?
    I don't believe that reporters should tow party lines, they should ask tough questions and demand straight answers from every person that they interview, regardless of if they agree with their point of view. If the interviewee is able to succinctly answer the tough questions without straying off topic it makes them and us look much better. the best example of this that I can think of is the interview with the guy from the west virginia self defense league (or something similar to that) when he was able to answer the anti interviewer's questions very well and logically.

    WLP made US look extremely bad yesterday.
    Chris Wallace may be a chip off the ol' block, but it wasn't him that made us look like a bunch of "gun nuts." That was Wayne....

    Wallace is from a long line of liberal biased blood.

    I think that Ted Nugent, if he could maintain his relatively calmer demeanor in the Piers Morgan interview tonight, would be an excellent NRA spokesperson. He had an answer for wherever Piers went and had a lot of energy. It's hard for someone without a dog in the fight to get behind a man that is as dry as WLP. WLP has done a good job in the NRA for the past 20 years, but public speaking doesn't seem to be one of his strong points.

    Eh, maybe, but he's got a reputation that they exploit against us with alarming ease an regularity. He's far better suited as a "preacher to the choir" than doing "outreach to the masses" in my mind.

    We need a Billy Gun Graham to take on Morgan, but I don't know who. Certainly not gun grabber Mitt Romney, but somebody with hair and suits like Romney.

    And I've said it here a dozen times, LaPierre needs to be the quiet guy who shows up at the office behind closed doors and cuts deals with agencies that we need on our side to beat congress into funding them.

    A month ago everyone said I was a troll for saying this. I absolve you all.

    LaPierre is not the public face we need right now. But he's hellaciously good behind closed doors.

    So for all those other agencies that we want to begin drawing into this conversation over the next 25 years, and do *NOT* kid yourself that this isn't a 25 year struggle if not more, we really want to begin getting those federal directors looking at "gun owners" in a positive rather than a negative light. And funding for their agencies is how that happens. It's politics is Washington. Money greases those wheels.
