Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, April 28, 2021

Wayne LaPierre has cultivated his image as an exemplar of American gun culture, but video of his clumsy marksmanship -- and details regarding his Rodeo Drive shopping trips -- tells another story.

After LaPierre's first shot wounded the elephant, guides brought him a short distance from the animal, which was lying on its side, immobilized. Firing from point-blank range, LaPierre shot the animal three times in the wrong place. Finally, a guide had the host of "Under Wild Skies" fire the shot that killed the elephant.

LaPierre would have performed better in a classroom full of first-graders.

It's hard to pose beside a dead whale?

"Who wants to kill an elephant and why?"

A killer, and because they are a killer.

Getting rid of these kinds of people sure seems impossible, doesn't it?

For those that don't understand the appeal of killing an elephant it is the largest animal on land and that in itself is the appeal.

For the record I'm opposed to hunting elephants for sport.

"...and that in itself is the appeal."

Only if you are a disgusting POS.

Apparently weirdo claiming to be a dad brags about his modest Dong size and how mediocre the weight of the fish he caught is.

Killing an elephant is worse than killing a puppy.

Too bad for the elephant there wasn't some rich ------ yacht it could go and hang out on until the sniveling bwana bozo with those penile insecurities stumbles into his next p.r. disaster.

Elephants are intelligent, loving animals. Killing them for sport is disgusting and is exactly what I would expect from a ghoul like LaPierre who has no respect for life.

Seriously, all such trophy hunts should have a world-wide ban...

If you are so bored and have to get your rocks off by shooting a
'non-game (for food) animal', then play a damned video game...

It's disappointing there are no gun lovers weighing in on this.

Sitzkrieg isn't even making his usual argument that killing elephants helps save the elephants.

I've often thought to make it fair; they should offer safaris to hunt the elephant hunters. Elephant hunting is disgusting; they are fascinating, intelligent, beautiful creatures with strong family bonds. They display human emotion when they lose a parent or a child. They are more human than the bloodthirsty monsters who hunt them.

The GOP is a Death Cult.

Truly interested to hear which Democrats (recently) have been big-game hunting?

No wonder Wayne doesn't trust a firearm to protect him when he doesn't know how to use one.

I have noticed a lot, here and other places, that lefties tend to know more about firearms and firearm safety than righties. Trumpers in particular seem to be the least competent regarding firearm safety measures.

Which makes sense, because a firearm is just a prop for the common Trumper. Just like their flags and Jesus.

I just don't know if you can call it hunting when a guide takes you out and says "there you go"

What he and his wife did is not hunting.

It's murder with a dose of sadism.

They probably busy rubbing one off on the extension of their manhood.
