(via NRA’s LaPierre on Fox News Sunday: “‘Obamacare’ means Obama can’t be trusted on gun control” | The Raw Story)

The CEO of the National Rifle Association (NRA) says that the American public should not trust President Barack Obama’s push for new gun control laws because the administration lied about “Obamacare” being a tax and a universal background check would just be a “check on law-abiding people.”

“It’s a fraud to call it universal,” the NRA’s LaPierre told Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday. “It’s never going to be universal, the criminals aren’t going to comply with it, they could care less.”

“We ought to quit calling it right now a universal check, the real title ought to be the check on law-abiding people all over this country,” he insisted.

LaPierre showed Wallace a flyer from Obama’s 2012 campaign which he claimed said that the president was “not going to take away your rifle, shotgun, handgun.”

“And now he’s trying to take away all three!” he declared.

“He’s not taking away shotguns,” Wallace pointed out.

“Have you looked at the Feinstein [assault weapons ban] bill that he supported?” LaPierre shot back. “That’s exactly what it does. I think that what they’ll do is they’ll turn this universal check on the law abiding into a universal registry of law-abiding people. And law-abiding people don’t want that.”

Wallace, however, argued that “there’s nothing that anyone in the administration’s said that indicates they’re going to have a universal registry.”

“And Obamacare wasn’t a tax until they needed it to be tax,” LaPierre quipped. “I mean, I don’t think you can trust these [people].”
