Wayne LaPierre Blasts Gun Control Advocates On “Hannity”

Speaking to Sean Hannity on FOX News on Thursday, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre called out politicians who want stricter gun laws in the wake of the tragedy in Las Vegas. He also issued an even harsher criticism of Hollywood celebrities who condemn the same guns that they make a fortune off of using inappropriately in the movies.

“This Hollywood crowd makes billions a year, every single day teaching gun irresponsibility to the American public,” LaPierre said. “The hypocrisy is beyond belief.”

He added: “They criticize me for saying people ought to be able to protect themselves from murderers, rapists and robbers, and then they make billions depicting every night those same situations. The hypocrisy coming out of Hollywood is beyond belief. The American public doesn’t buy into it."
