LaPierre: Connecticut Gun Laws Won’t Stop Violence
National Rifle Association President Wayne LaPierre ridiculed the newly passed gun legislation — some of the toughest in the country — saying that the legislative impact will be nil in with regard to reducing violence in the State.
“I think the problem with what Connecticut did, is the criminals, the drug dealers, the people that are going to do horror and terror, they aren’t going to cooperate. All you’re doing is making the law books thicker for the law-abiding people,” LaPierre said on FOX News.
The NRA President also said that if Connecticut lawmakers were serious about protecting schoolchildren, there would have been more focus put on school safety initiatives including implementation of a plan to put armed guards on campuses.
“From the very start, my thought has been how little it has to do with keeping kids safe and how much it has to do with this decade-long agenda against firearms that… some of the political class and the media have had,” he said.
