National Rifle Association (NRA) executives were secretly filmed in the Al Jazeera documentary, “How to Sell a Massacre,” in 2018 coaching the anti-immigration One Nation party of Australia on how to exploit mass shootings.
The New York Times notes that NRA communications official, Lars Dalseide, advised the right wing nationalists to “shame them to the whole idea,” when fighting those who advocate for sensible gun laws after shootings:
If your policy, isn’t good enough to stand on itself, how dare you use their deaths to push that forward? How dare you stand on the graves of those children to put forward your political agenda?
NRA executive Catherine Mortensen reportedly advised the nationalists to simply “ignore” media inquiries after a mass shooting.
NRA lobbyist Brandi Graham whines about how successful gun control laws in Australia are thrown in the face of the NRA in U.S.
The New York Times reports: “Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Twitter that reports of One Nation officials soliciting donations from the American gun lobby ‘to influence our elections & undermine our gun laws that keep us safe are deeply concerning.’”
