LaPierre Sets Gun-Banners Straight On Terror

posted on June 21, 2016

On CBS News’ “Face The Nation” Sunday morning, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre made a strong case against gun-banners who believe taking away the rights of law-abiding citizens through gun bans and tighter restrictions is the best method for curtailing terrorism.

“What we’re doing with this debate on the Hill right now, it’s like they’re trying to stop a freight train with a piece of Kleenex,” Wayne LaPierre told CBS’ John Dickerson. Speaking of terrorists like the one who killed 49 in Orlando, LaPierre said, “They don’t care about the law. Laws didn’t stop them in Boston. Laws didn’t stop them in San Bernardino, where you had every type of a gun-control law you could have, and that didn’t stop them in Paris, where people can’t even own guns.”

LaPierre said Americans must have the means to fight back against those who have vowed to kill us. “The fact is we need vigilance, we need preparedness, we need a full-court press on personal protection,” he said. “We need to be able to protect ourselves.”
