Lautenberg: NRA’s Rhetoric ‘Disturbing And Dangerous’ [View all]

Source: TPM


DAVID TAINTOR 12:02 PM EST, FRIDAY DECEMBER 21, 2012

Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) on Friday released the following statement after the National Rifle Association's press conference:

“It is beyond belief that following the Newtown tragedy, the National Rifle Association’s leaders want to fill our communities with guns and arm more Americans. The NRA points the finger of blame everywhere and anywhere it can, but they cannot escape the devastating effects of their reckless comments and irresponsible lobbying tactics. The NRA leadership is wildly out of touch with its own members, responsible gun owners, and the American public who want to close dangerous loopholes and enact common-sense gun safety reform. It is clear that their real priority is to help gun manufacturers sell more guns—not to protect our children or Americans’ rights. The extreme rhetoric of Wayne LaPierre and the NRA is disturbing and dangerous, and will only exacerbate America’s deadly culture of gun violence."
