Dana Loesch, the current spokeswoman for the NRA was confronted with the anti-gun activists from Stoneman Douglas High School, which happened at the CNN’s town hall on Wednesday.
During the conversation with student Emma Gonzalez, Loesch pointed to the failure of states to submit convictions to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System as a reason people with mental illness and dangerous people are able to get guns and other deadly weapons in their hands.
“This individual was nuts. And I, nor the millions of people that I represent as a part of this organization that I’m here speaking for, none of us support people who are crazy, who are a danger to themselves, who are a danger to others getting their hands on a firearm,” NRA’s Dana Loesch said. “And we have been for over 20 years and I have been screaming about this which is why I’m here. Because I have kids and I’m not just fighting for my kids, I’m fighting for all of you. Do you know that it is not federally required for states to actually report people who are prohibited possessors, crazy people, people who are murderers?”
The student Emma Gonzalez carefully listened to Dana Loesch’s point, but most of the crowd started to make noise, after what Gonzalez asked them to be quiet.
“How was he able to pass a background check? He was able to pass a background check because we have a system that’s flawed. The Sutherland Springs murderer was able to pass a background check because the Air Force did not report that record,” Dana Loesch added.
Here is a video of the interview, be sure to watch it:
Emma Gonzalez interrupted Dana Loesch and asked he to repeat the question.
“I think I’m going to interrupt you real quick and remind you that the question is actually, do you believe it should be harder to obtain these semiautomatic weapons and modifications to make them fully automatic, such as bump stocks?” Emma Gonzalez asked NRA’s, Dana Loesch.
Dana Loesch emphasized the position of the NRA, which is allowing the federal law enforcement organization(ATF) to reconsider a ban on bump stocks. Spread this everywhere if you agree with Dana Loesch.
