‘You Missed That Point Completely’ - Durbin Hits Back At NRA’s Wayne LaPierre



LaPierre said. "We don't even prosecute anybody right now that goes through the system we have. So, we're going to make all those law-abiding people go through the system and then we aren't going to prosecute any of the bad guys if they do catch one. None of it makes any sense in the real world. We have 80,000 police families in the NRA. We care about safety. We support what works."

After a brief interlude by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT), the committee chairman, Durbin went after LaPierre.

"Mr. LaPierre, that's the point," Durbin fired back. "The criminals won't go to purchase the guns because there'll be a background check. We'll stop them from original purchase. You missed that point completely. It's basic."


Durbin's remarks drew applause from some in the audience, prompting Leahy to call for order.

1. I love my Senator Dick Durbin

In my opinion he's the best we have in Congress and he never backs down when its comes down to life or death

4. I'm expecting any time for the gun nuts to claim he's a Liberal plant since his name is French.
