Choking Back Tears, N.R.A. Leader Marries Gun
Mr. LaPierre grew emotional as he reminisced about meeting the firearm at a gun show in Alabama in 1991.
“The chemistry between us was amazing,” he said. “Our first weekend together, all we did was shoot.”
Marriage between a human and a gun is not legal in most states, a situation that Mr. LaPierre bemoans: “For a lot of N.R.A. members it’s the only intimate relationship they’re capable of.”
The wedding ceremony was attended by twenty-five of Mr. LaPierre’s guns and over two hundred members of Congress.
