Larry Pratt, Leader of the Religious Right’s Gun Owners of America, Falsely Claims Obamacare Will Take Away Guns
Larry Pratt, leader of the Religious Right gun group Gun Owners of America, recently falsely claimed that Obamacare will help the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to “take away your guns.”
Pratt, the organization’s executive director who has ties to white supremacists, appeared on VCY America’s Crosstalk to float a number of conspiracies” (more audio below).
Pratt alleged that the left is to blame for the Benghazi attack because of its “profound dislike of self-defense” and refusal to “believe in self-defense either personally or as a matter of national self-defense.”
Later, he also spoke to a caller about the latest right-wing conspiracy that FEMA Corps, a program dedicated to training “young volunteers to physically and psychologically handle the demands of working in hazardous areas,” is actually an armed brigade that may be used to persecute political opponents.
