Gun Lobbyist Kills Elephant In NRA-Sponsored NBC Sports Show

More NRA Caused Carnage

National Rifle Association lobbyist Tony Makris loves killing big game, and in a recent episode of "Under Wild Skies," he shoots down one of the biggest: a bull elephant.

The show, sponsored by the NRA, has aired on various networks in the past, but NBC Sports Network is now facing backlash for carrying newer episodes of the program.

In the video above, Makris, wearing the brown safari hat, can be seen tracking the elephant, taking aim and shooting it twice. The large animal trumpets, and Makris and his guide retreat to reload.

"Somebody got a little cheeky there," he says, chuckling after the elephant stormed in their direction. Makris then raises his rifle up again and shoots it "between the eyes."

Wonder how it would do on the barbecue? Imagine, just one rib would feed the whole family.
