Henson Ong at Gun Violence Prevention Public Hearing - Hartford, CT

This link was forwarded to me by a reader who commented: "If Wayne La Pierre had been this well prepared and eloquent, he wouldn’t have had his ass handed to him on Fox News."

This man has no need to apologize for his English. He has a better command of it than a lot of people born and raised here.

Fire Wayne LaPierre and replace him with Henson Ong. LaPierre has been a drag on the organization for decades. I for one am sick and tired of his dull witted, inarticulate and ineffective leadership.

He has the charisma of cardboard and the leadership qualities of a Chamber of Commerce secretary. I have wondered for years how this guy maintains his leadership position. I know that I have never voted for him.

It is humbling to see someone who HAD to learn their civics lessons in order to get citizenship, to see them exhibit such a clear understanding of the value of their own individual liberty, American history and juris prudence, and of the Constitution.

This article, with background information about Mr. Ong, is definitely worth a read.

A far better American than many who were born here.

I think it pertinent Mr. Ong is a "volunteer patriot" that chose to accept the obligations and complete the requirements for citizenship. His testimony serves as a strong lesson for so many of us "natural citizens", too often taking what this man had to learn for granted.

He prepares because he values liberty since where he came from there probably was none.
