Wayne LaPierre finally has someone who will defend him.

Surprise, it's Rush Limbaugh.

On his radio show this afternoon, Limbaugh called the NRA leader "an adult looking for real solutions," and said he was "disrespected" by Code Pink protesters who, he claimed, would never interrupt a hearing on Benghazi.


"No matter what he said, Wayne LaPierre sounded like an adult looking for real solutions, but that's not what this country's interested in right now. Sorry. The adults are not running this show," said Limbaugh.

Who is? Facebook! And the liberal media!

 "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."  It happens to be true, but you just can't say it.  Look, the ... (sigh) You can call it a stacked deck, a rigged game, whatever, but the fix is in.  The NRA is the enemy.  The NRA is hated.  Go to Twitter.  Go to Facebook.  Go to ABC, CBS, NBC. Go to any of the blogs. Go to any of the newspapers. ...

The Democrats and the liberals own the media. They own Twitter. They own Facebook.
