On the heels of the tragic Newtown, Conn. school shooting which left 26 people dead, this evening "Piers Morgan Tonight" invited Larry Pratt to the program to share his strong perspective on the firearm debate.
"Since we have concealed carry laws in all of our country now, people can get a concealed firearm. And yet, we have laws that say not in schools," the Executive Director of Gun Owners of America said. "And so in the very places that have been sought out by monsters such as the murderer of these adults and children, we're saying, 'no, we don't want you to be able to defend yourself. It's better that you just sit there and wait to be killed.' And we find that morally incomprehensible."
Pratt says he's deeply disturbed by the anti-gun supporters. It's "deeply disturbing, that the desire to defend life has been so cast aside. And to whatever political correctness views guns as the ultimate evil. Evil's in our hearts. Not in the guns."
The staunch defendant of the Second Amendment tried to explain that the gun problems in America occur solely where guns aren't allowed. "The problem occurs, sir, in those areas precisely where we have said no guns. The problem doesn't occur where the guns are allowed freely to be carried to be used by people. There we have very low murder rates."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Pratt tries to explain why he said lawmakers have 'blood on their hands.'
