Did the founding fathers really want to give criminals the freedom to buy unlimited amounts of ammunition? Were they really protecting your right to buy 6,000 bullets on a whim?
As MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell discussed his latest Rewrite, Wayne LaPierre, America's top gun lobbyist makes it easy to get 6,000 bullets. And he hasn't said a peep about our country’s most recent mass murder.
All we got was a generic press release on Friday. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families and the community. NRA will not have any further comment until all the facts are known," read the statement.
He's the head of the National Rifle Association and he wouldn't even put his name on yet another high-profile NRA press release about a mass murder.
"Even when he deserves 24-hour media attention, Wayne LaPierre is the perfect picture of modesty," said O’Donnell. "Blood-drenched modesty."
