3. Nervous disorder? At first, I thought perhaps bone spurs? ...

Ha! He still looks like he has a nervous disorder. Lottery number of 97? Gee Whiz, I wonder how he ever got out of that, being such a low number.

I remember sitting around the TV and watching these drawings. Very scary for a lot of us and our childhood friends back then (for those not in the know, drafts weren't voluntary back then, only if you had a physical deferment or going to school/college, could you get a deferment.)

I guess that this guy and tRUMP must have been childhood friends?

Those of us who were genuinely against the war had no problems with so called "draft dodgers." It's when those same guys turned around and became "chicken hawks"...Politicians vigorously defending or advocating senseless wars when somebody else will fight them, is completely deplorable.

30. My number was 301 in '71

The estimate that year was up to #125, so in #97 in '69 would have been called.

When I saw my number pulled on TV, refused to celebrate until I saw it confirmed in the newspaper the next day. Dropped my student deferment and was immediately reclassified as 1-H for "holding" until my target year passed.

Yes, very scary to be a lottery target where 1/3 or more were "winners".

62. I watched as well....

I was 20 years old, and I took a year off from College just to bum around for awhile. They said the first 125 numbers drawn in the lottery were certain to go. I watched in incredible anxiety. All young men did. I made it through the first 125! Yippee! Number 126..........November 13, my birthday. I went for my pre-induction physical and they found an irregular heartbeat. That saved me. I haven't had any trouble from it, and I take medication to keep it that way. I'm actually thankful they found that, but I'm more thankful I didn't have to attend the University of Southeast Asia. I went back to College the next semester.

According to Snopes that is still unproven! And for some reason the Selective Service System has failed to provide Wayne LaPierre’s archived draft registration documents.

8. Wayne's not in it for the guns -- he's in it for money and power.

SHERYL GAY STOLBERG, The New York Times:
Wayne LaPierre is the NRA. He built the NRA into what it is today.

NARRATOR:
In the 1970s, he started as a lobbyist.

RICHARD FELDMAN, Former NRA Lobbyist:
If you’re a political junkie, like Wayne or like myself, it was a wonderful job. You’re working with all these people and having these fights. And you’re cutting your teeth.

NARRATOR:
But LaPierre was no one’s idea of a glad-handing lobbyist.

WARREN CASSIDY:
He was a very quiet man. I was amazed he was a lobbyist because he did not have the “hail fellow well met” attitude or personality that I associated with politicians or with lobbyists.

NARRATOR:
And surprisingly for the NRA, he was not a gun enthusiast, more comfortable on K Street than in a duck blind.

JOHN AQUILINO:
The safest place you could be with Wayne and a gun back then was in a different state because he really did not know anything about guns. Politics, yes. Guns, no.

NARRATOR:
And inside the fractious politics of the NRA, LaPierre was skillful, navigating between the sportsmen and the gun rights activists.

WARREN CASSIDY:
Wayne could put a finger to the wind and see which way it was blowing, and he would position himself so that neither side would be offended and might even think that he were, in fact, on that side.

TIM DICKINSON, Rolling Stone:
In an organization that is so beset by factionalism, his being unmoored to any particular point of view is actually very helpful for him in terms of being able to ride the torrents that have occasionally swept through the NRA and emerge always on top.

https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/film/gunned-down/transcript/



Those last two paras sound disturbingly Trumpian.

Is there a single elected official who has or will change their support of the NRA's positions because of this met?

I'm of the age to have gone through the draft lottery (a bit younger than LaPierre). I'm trying to think of I know anyone who went to the trouble of getting a medical deferment when they could have a student deferment.

My brother, who had Rheumatic Fever as a child could not at the outset get a medical deferment, so went for the student deferment. He was not a particularly good student and it did need renewing often. Kept trying for the medical and once he did get it, dropped the student deferment.

81. Limbaugh may have had a student deferment

A lot of guys my age (I'm 66) were still in school during the years of the draft lottery - that started in 1969 as I recall. Male students may have gotten a low number in the lottery but they still kept their S-1 deferment as long as they stayed in school. A lot of guys my age actually graduated college and enrolled immediately in graduate school in order to keep their S-1 deferment. That didn't always work though.

I've no idea what Rush Limbaugh did, but it would have been a common maneuver. By about 1974 they weren't drafting so many guys because the war was winding down and Uncle Sam had volunteers and re-ups to fill spots. There were other strategies, as we all know. Some guys were able to get a 4-F for a medical problem, others got out on a CO - conscientious objector. Some guys got married and had a baby, and Uncle Sam gave them a pass. If you were a teacher you got a deferment, and some split for Canada. It wasn't a good time to be a young male in America.

58. On the list of cos. that support the NRA

I saw some author's Web site and he had written a Christian book about his anxiety disorder.

59. He went to school at my alma mater!

I looked this up on Snopes and he apparently graduated from Siena College, a year before my freshman year, so I never met him. They list the deferment as unproven yet he did score a 97 in the lottery and was not drafted so there's a question as to why.

60. Just another fake "tough guy"

followed by legions of fellow fake "tough guys." A loser who could go nowhere in life until he discovered the grifter's paradise on K street.

64. We should keep this post very visible for a long time.

Be nice to see an ad around election time - which has begun.

66. Nope. Never wondered.

I always figured he was a chickenshit, like Trump, Dumbya, Cheney, Limbaugh, and the rest of their ilk.

67. As a veteran, I don't care WHY LaPierre wasn't in the Army

And I'm actually glad he was not...you know a guy like that would have been one of those lieutenants who got his entire platoon killed out of utter stupidity.

What's important is his actions now, and he seems to be fine with everyone else's kid getting blown away for no good reason.

68. Still crazy after all these years...

And still a liar and a traitor to the USA. Give him a pardon and let him go live in Moscow.

71. I don't know if this is true or not.

If it is, he shouldn't be around guns.

72. Come on, show some compassion LaPierre has suffered WPOS syndrome since 1969

There is no known cure. WPOS syndrome is known medically as Worthless Piece Of Shit syndrome.
It can be as debilitating as bone spurs...

79. He had a legitimate worry

In Vietnam, he would have had to face a whole lot of people who didn't agree with him--and they all had guns, too. Gun nuts do not like being confronted by other people with guns, especially if there are superior in number. The transition from gun nuts to numb nuts can sometimes be faster than the eye can see.

83. Another right-wing hypocrite!

Although it's not been verified, with facts, that his deferment was of the medical nature—it could have been a student deferment…

the fact that he did not serve makes him as much of a hypocrite as our draft-dodging "president". All talk, no action! Whatever rakes-in the big bucks.

86. And he does make "the big bucks" as I recently learned

Approximately $5 million a year - all from spoils from the NRA! And for what??

84. Add him to my list of people who if the enemy had

not taken him out, his own men would have and WE would not have to DEAL with him now.

There are many other names that apply here, Limpdick, Trump, Cheney, etc.
