Keith Ellison: Wayne LaPierre Doesn’t Want to Talk About the Blood on His Hands
ELLISON: "Well, he’s trying to use fear to manipulate people, but, look, you know, the last thing he wants to talk about is the 17 dead students in parkland, 20 dead children and seven more dead teachers at Sandy Hook. He doesn’t want to talk about the fact that since the assault weapon ban in 2004, there’s been an increase in gun-related deaths. He doesn’t want to talk about blood spilled all over his hands because of the left policies he’s pushing. He wants to make people afraid, and he wants to tell people lies and distortions rather than deal with the fact that he is entrapped in fear in order to line the pockets of his clients and gun manufacturing industry. It’s really horrendous, and yet, you know, we’ve got to challenge him. We got to confront him, but keep the focus on the families wolf. He calls me a name, I call him a name, no, it’s about the families, and that’s where we keep our focus."
