Lansdowne has gone on record saying: “I could not be more supportive of the president for taking the position he has. I think it’s courageous with the politics involved in this process. [And] I think it’s going to eventually make the country safer.”
He made it clear that it may take “a generation,” but new laws could eventually take all guns off the streets.
This is quite a departure from other law enforcement personnel we’ve seen around the country–particularly Sheriffs–who’ve come out firmly against any infringement on the 2nd Amendment. We’ve cheered those officials for standing with the people, and now Lansdowne has taken a position completely opposite them.
Moreover, Lansdowne has also been slamming the NRA in interviews. And he seems overtly thrilled at the money the NRA is being forced to spend to get their message out in the wake of the crime at Sandy Hook Elementary. “We broke the NRA,” says Lansdowne.
Breitbart News contacted Lansdowne’s office about these statements but received no comment.
