NRA President Oliver North announced Sunday his plan to sell arms to Iran to save the National Rifle Association from financial catastrophe.
Asserting that “heroic measures” were needed to save the National Rifle Association from financial catastrophe, Mr North told reporters: “Iran needs weapons, and, Lord knows, we have a lot of weapons lying around,” he added, “This is the definition of a win-win.”
Mr North claimed he came up with the idea of selling arms to Iranian since they “were always great to deal with” and “never cared where the money was going to.”
He said that his next move was to establish new contacts in Iran. “Back in the day, I remember there was an Ayatollah there, but I think it’s a new Ayatollah now,” he said. “I wish I could take a look at my old documents, but I guess I had them shredded.”
The NRA President said that, if Iran is not interested in purchasing arms, the cash-strapped organisation would resort to other ways of raising funds, such as selling used office furniture or members of Congress.
