“This is a game that is about people’s rights,” says Rush Limbaugh
In August, Rush Limbaugh announced that he would be leaving The Rush Limbaugh Show, citing health issues and an inability to continue his radio show in the wake of an exposé.
His departure came just two months after he was sued by the National Rifle Association for making disparaging remarks about women.
Now, on his radio program, Limbaugh has said that the NRA has been wrong and that he is no longer a supporter of the organization.
“We’re just not going to be able to continue to say this stuff because the NRA doesn’t care about you,” Limbaugh said, adding that the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) “has taken over” The Rush L. Limbaugh Show.
“I’m not going anywhere.”
Limbaugh has been outspoken in his opposition to gun control.
In the wake to the mass shooting in Las Vegas, Limbaugh said that he and his show are “not for gun control.”
“I can’t say it anymore: I’m not a fan of gun control,” Limbaugh told his listeners in a May 23 appearance.
“This has nothing to do with the Second Amendment.
This has nothing whatsoever to do to anything I’ve said in the past.
If you believe in gun control, then you are not going into this discussion.
The NRA has not commented on Limbaugh’s comments, and The Rush was unavailable for comment.”
You’re not getting any kind of respect from the NRA.”
