    This fucking guy claims he didnt realize that he would be performing at a firearms industry function when its called the Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade Show, commenly called the SHOT Show.

    Statement released by the National Shooting Sports Foundation:

    NSSF Statement on Jay Leno Cancellation
    of SHOT Show Appearance



    We are clearly disappointed by Jay Leno's decision not to perform at the 2015 SHOT Show State of the Industry Dinner. He unilaterally cancelled his promised appearance due to pressure from the anti-gun lobby, which included false statements about our industry and its commitment to genuine firearms safety, which we attempted to personally correct with him, but to no avail.

    We are not deterred by their publicity seeking nor are we unfamiliar with the bullying political tactics of the gun control groups that seem to have as little respect for the First Amendment as they continually demonstrate with regard to the Second Amendment.

    We are proud of the many programs that we run that meaningfully contribute to public safety including our long standing Project ChildSafe and Don't Lie for the Other Guy initiatives in addition to our members everyday work in compliance with comprehensive federal and state laws. We will not allow the lawful commerce in firearms nor our industry to be demonized and we will continue to speak out for the Second Amendment rights of the millions of law-abiding citizens who are our customers.

    Despite Mr. Leno's cancellation, we look forward to having our biggest and best State of the Industry Dinner to date with a performer that respects the contributions of our industry and the customers it supports.

    Leno's statement. "Mistakes get made" WTF? You knew what the fuck it was, you massive vag.

    "I understand it's Newtown, and of course I get it," Leno, whose CNBC car series is slated to premiere in 2015, told Mother Jones about his decision to cancel his appearance. "It's just sometimes, mistakes get made."

    Reps for NBC and Leno's Big Dog Productions declined to comment.

    Gun organizations claiming someone else "Used false statements" is funny in itself.

    When it comes to lying they make Wiggy look honest. In the end they do more damage to gun rights than a entire House and Senate of Dianne Fienstiens ever could.
