“What we’re doing with this debate on the Hill right now, it’s like they’re trying to stop a freight train with a piece of Kleenex,” Wayne LaPierre said on CBS’s “Face The Nation.”
The Hill reports:
LaPierre said people who commit attacks like the one carried out last weekend at the Pulse nightclub won’t be stopped by laws.
“They don’t care about the law. Laws didn’t stop them in Boston. Laws didn’t stop them in San Bernardino, where you had every type of a gun control law you could have, and they didn’t stop them in Paris, where people can’t even own guns,” he said.
“These bad guys we’re facing, they don’t say, ‘Oh gosh, they passed a law. Oh gosh, I don’t think I could do it.'”
The Senate will vote Monday on gun control proposals after Democrats staged a filibuster last week to force a debate on the issue.
LaPierre said Sunday that these kinds of proposals won’t prevent attacks.
“We need to face what’s coming. They’re trying to kill us,” he said.
He said terrorists, like the Orlando shooter, will attack places like shopping malls and churches.
“The fact is we need vigilance, we need preparedness, we need a full-court press on personal protection. We need to be able to protect ourselves,” he said.
He urged Americans to create their own security plans because “they’re coming.” He said the country needs to get the bad guys off the street and “leave the good guys alone.”
“They’re going to go for vulnerable spots,” he said, “and this country needs to realize it.”
