WASHINGTON — Two top National Rifle Association officials took aim at Donald Trump on Sunday, blasting his suggestion that armed clubgoers could have prevented the deadliest mass shooting in US history as one that “defies common sense.”
“No one thinks that people should go into a nightclub drinking and carrying firearms,” said Chris Cox, executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action told ABC’s “This Week.” “That defies common sense. It also defies the law.”
Trump fired up a Texas rally on Friday by saying if some people at the Pulse nightclub “had guns strapped … right to their waist or right to their ankle” it would have “beautiful sight” to have them shoot “the son of a bitch.”...
But Wayne LaPiere, NRA’s CEO, said Sunday that pistol-packing revelers are not a realistic solution.
“I don’t think you should have firearms where people are drinking,” LaPiere told CBS’s “Face the Nation.”Seems they're more sensible than David Leyonhjelm, too.
