(CNSNews.com) - Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says the National Rifle Association (NRA) is “bad, really bad” and the group Gun Owners of America is “even worse than bad.”
Speaking on the Senate floor earlier this week, Reid claimed Americans want stricter gun control.
“More than 80% of Americans want to close so-called terror loopholes, preventing people on terror watch lists from purchasing firearms,” Reid said.
“Yet in spite the public’s demand for action Senate Republicans continue to cower - cower before the NRA and the Gun Owners of America. The NRA is bad, really bad. Gun Owners of America is even worse than bad.”
“These two organizations are competing - seeing just how extreme they can be in pushing for more guns and fewer protections,” Reid said.
