NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre appeared with Sean Hannity tonight to discuss the ongoing conversation in the U.S. about gun control following the Las Vegas shooting.
LaPierre lamented how the “other side” has been trying to politicize the matter, though he did note the NRA’s statement today on bump stocks and how they believe “we ought to take a look at that.”
On the subject of liberals expressing anti-gun sentiments, LaPierre railed against the “elites” and said most Americans want to be able to protect themselves.
At one point Hannity brought up how “the NRA gets a bad rap” and asked LaPierre about how they teach gun safety. LaPierre didn’t take long to invoke Hollywood in his answer:
“This Hollywood crowd makes billions a year, every single day, teaching gun irresponsibility to the American public. The hypocrisy is beyond belief. They criticize me for saying people ought to be able to protect themselves from murders, 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.”
