  • Now, we all know by now

  • that this is the craziest election

  • Americans have ever seen.

  • I mean, attack ads have been replaced by Twitter.

  • Saying terrible things now gets you more votes.

  • And, uh, we watched a man sleepwalk

  • through an entire presidential campaign.

  • But in all this chaos, thankfully,

  • there is one pillar of consistency,

  • and that is the National Rifle Association,

  • America's largest firearms lobby

  • and proud retailer of gun-shaped mailboxes,

  • for when you really want to shoot the messenger.

  • Now, every election,

  • this organization reminds us how powerful they are.

  • And last Friday, they did it again by getting Donald Trump

  • to fly to their national convention in Louisville

  • and pledge his support

  • in exchange for their endorsement.

  • And that's really impressive.

  • Because Donald Trump doesn't care about the things

  • Republican leaders are supposed to care about.

  • I mean, he supported Planned Parenthood, you know?

  • He doesn't support free trade.

  • And he won't even wear those little Reagan nipple clamps

  • that they're all supposed to wear. Yeah.

  • Well, why do you think Ted Cruz always has that creepy smile?

  • Now you know. Now you know.

  • So, a lot of politicians support the NRA.

  • But what makes this surprising

  • is that Trump himself, on multiple occasions,

  • supported gun control measures

  • and even famously tweeted that President Barack Obama

  • spoke for him on the need for more gun control

  • after Sandy Hook.

  • But that was three years and a nomination ago,

  • and so at Friday's NRA event,

  • Trump was far more on target.

  • Thank you very much. This is, uh, amazing.

  • Hillary Clinton wants to abolish the Second Amendment.

  • Just remember that. We're not gonna let that happen,

  • I can tell you that right now. We're gonna preserve it.

  • We're gonna cherish it.

  • I've been watching what's going on,

  • and I've been looking at airplanes getting blown up

  • in the air and lots of bad things happening.

  • But if you look at Paris, 130 people killed,

  • and these guys came in, boom, boom.

  • "You, over here." Boom.

  • "Boom, boom"?

  • Well, I-I don't know if that's the most respectful way

  • to explain the Paris shootings.

  • "Boom, boom"?

  • Although, to be fair,

  • Trump explains every terrible historic event like that.

  • "Hindenburg, huge balloon, boom,

  • "flames, humanity, terrible.

  • "Lincoln assassination,

  • "boring play, nagging wife,

  • "out of nowhere, boom,

  • "he gets some peace and quiet.

  • "Julius Caesar, stab, stab, pizza, pizza.

  • "You can hear all those and more on my album,

  • Now That's What I Call Tragedy."

  • (cheering and applause)

  • Now...

  • now-now, you can argue that Trump isn't pandering,

  • that he might really love guns.

  • And I'll say maybe, just maybe that's possible.

  • But the way he talked on Friday makes me think

  • he's not totally on board.

  • My sons have been members of the NRA

  • for many, many years, and they're incredible.

  • They have so many rifles and so many guns,

  • sometimes even I get a little bit concerned.

  • I say, "That's a lot."

  • Oh, oh, what happened there?

  • Oh, what happened there? Yeah.

  • A little bit of a Truth Trump slipped out, huh? Yeah?

  • Yeah, it's a Trumpian slip, when you tell the truth

  • when you're trying to pander. That's what that is.

  • I love that. I love it.

  • It's... And it almost feels like, at times, Trump is trying

  • to feel out how crazy the group actually is.

  • It's like he's testing the room. "I mean, there's, uh...

  • "th-there is such a thing as too many guns, am I right?

  • "Am I right? No? No, of course not.

  • "Yeah. What was I saying? Of course not.

  • "I mean, as long as you're mentally stable.

  • "That's the rule. N-No? Okay, not that. Whatever.

  • "Anyway... But, I mean, that's just the guns, though,

  • "not missiles... Get the (bleep) out of here.

  • "Get the (bleep)... Missiles, too?

  • Wow, we are nuts." (clears throat)

  • Now, uh, you shouldn't be surprised

  • that the NRA got Trump to fall in line with their agenda,

  • because they always get what they want.

  • At the urging of the NRA, Congress passed a law

  • that specifically shields gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

  • REPORTER: After the Sandy Hook shooting in Newtown,

  • the National Rifle Association bullied just enough members

  • of Congress to block any real action.

  • REPORTER 2: The NRA supported some of the most permissive

  • gun laws this country has ever seen.

  • You're allowed to carry a gun into a national park.

  • You can transport a gun on Amtrak.

  • And the NRA fought the handgun ban in the nation's capital.

  • Wow. That is a (bleep) ton of accomplishments.

  • Even the Illuminati's like, "Damn, you guys run (bleep).

  • Can we join you?"

  • And here's one of the craziest laws

  • that the NRA has gotten passed,

  • because they talk so much about good guys and bad guys.

  • When it comes to actually catching bad guys,

  • the NRA still takes the side of the gun over the victim.

  • MAN: This is the ATF's library of weapons

  • where feds try to help local police solve a crime,

  • figure out the exact type of gun

  • and trace where it was bought.

  • That means paperwork, and here, they are forced by Congress

  • to do things the old-fashioned way,

  • because members of Congress, backed by the NRA,

  • passed laws forbidding the agency from using computers.

  • -Are you (bleep) kidding me? -(laughter)

  • In the name of gun rights, the NRA found a way

  • to stop law enforcement from using computers.

  • Now they have to rely solely on paperwork.

  • That's like telling a teenager he can only jerk off

  • -to the Mona Lisa, that's all. That's... -(laughter)

  • "You can jerk off, but only to the Mona Lisa."

  • And the kid will be like, "What? Are you crazy?!

  • "I mean, I'll get it done, but it's just not very efficient.

  • -Oh! Oh!" -(applause)

  • "I don't even know if she's smiling. Ugh!"

  • And a lot of people think

  • the NRA has always been an extreme gun rights group,

  • but that's not true,

  • because that's actually not how it started.

  • BARRETT: This is an organization that, back in the '60s,

  • was a very tame, not particularly

  • political organization.

  • BENNETT: The NRA was a safety organization.

  • They helped people

  • teach their children and their friends and family

  • how to use and store and keep firearms safely.

  • The NRA supported

  • the Gun Control Act of 1968, for example.

  • Oh, wow.

  • So the NRA was a firearms safety organization

  • that also supported gun control.

  • What a dramatic change in goals.

  • It's like learning that the Ku Klux Klan

  • was once an organization devoted

  • to the care and maintenance of bedsheets.

  • (laughter)

  • And then one day, someone was like,

  • "Aah, there's holes in these sheets!

  • Now we have to find something else to do with them."

  • -(laughter) -So, going back.

  • During the 1960s and '70s,

  • there was a surge in riots and assassinations,

  • and because of that,

  • more gun laws and more gun control laws were passed.

  • And because of that,

  • a few people within the NRA decided to act.

  • CASSIDY: The NRA people said, "Wait a minute.

  • "We've got other things to worry about

  • than teaching guys how to shoot or how to hunt."

  • And that was the transformative period.

  • NARRATOR: It formally happened in 1977

  • at the NRA convention in Cincinnati.

  • As they got down to business, there was a showdown--

  • hunters and sportsmen, versus gun rights activists.

  • A group of hard-liners committed

  • to a no-compromises approach to the second amendment,

  • manipulated the rules of order,

  • and literally took over the NRA overnight.

  • Damn. You know, a lot of people would think

  • the last place you would expect a coup is within the NRA,

  • -'cause, I mean, everyone has a gun. -(laughter)

  • But you see, because of that,

  • they choose to solve all of their disputes

  • using a complicated system known as "rock, paper, scissors."

  • -(laughter) -That's what they do.

  • Yeah, and then one guy kept his gun, and he was like,

  • -"I win, I win. We're changing the rules." -(laughter)

  • So, after 1977, the NRA had a new mission--

  • to radically redefine gun rights in America.

  • And, to help sell that mission,

  • it brought in a professional lobbyist named Wayne LaPierre.

  • He's the guy who turned the NRA into a political powerhouse.

  • He's been the executive vice president and the main face

  • of the group for 25 years, and it's because of his leadership

  • that the NRA has prevented any serious safety legislation

  • in an era when annual active shooter incidents

  • have reached peak levels.

  • And when you hear Wayne LaPierre speak,

  • you'll understand why he's been so successful.

  • Because there's somebody else who's been just as successful

  • using the same technique.

  • Something in our country has gone wrong.

  • We don't have a country anymore.

  • The Obama-Clinton administration slashed America's military.

  • Our military, as you know, it's being decapitated.

  • Failed border policy.

  • Mexico is just killing us at the border.

  • Drug cartels, carjackers.

  • They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime.

  • Knockout gamers and rapers and haters and campus killers.

  • And gang members who prey on civilians.

  • We will take back our country,

  • and we will help restore America to its rightful place.

  • We are going to make America great again.

  • -Ah! -(laughter)

  • I love the smell of demagoguery in the morning.

  • (laughter)

  • And when you think about it,

  • Donald Trump and the NRA are a match that was meant to be.

  • Although, they both used to be fairly moderate

  • and even pro gun control,

  • they rose to their current heights of political power

  • by stoking apocalyptic fears with deranged rhetoric.

  • Plus, one way or another,

  • the NRA and Trump both make everybody think,

  • "You know what? Maybe I should get a gun, just in case."

Now, we all know by now
