On the heels of a fiery CPAC speech by Wayne LaPierre, on Friday evening "Piers Morgan Live" invited David Bossie and Margaret Hoover to share their insightful opinions and political perspectives within the context of gun safety, and potential legislation.
"The polling across the country is not for an assault gun weapons ban, or the implementation of it," said Hoover, a Republican consultant.
Referencing LaPierre's divisive rhetoric which called for armed females being the strongest defense against a potential rapist, Hoover was inclined to suggest that the NRA's stance more closely mirrored the country's, than it does Piers Morgan's:
"The polling is much more aligned – not with every woman owning a gun – but people are closer to Wayne LaPierre's position than they are to yours."
Following up on LaPierre's point, Bossie offered his explanation for resisting any form of firearm ban:
"A rapist has to think that the woman may be armed. That's all it takes," said the president of Citizens United. "If you disarm everyone in America, they do know that you're not armed. That's the one fact that you [Piers Morgan] can't get away from. What they don't know is if you are armed. There's no sign on your back saying 'I'm armed.' There's the potential for you to be armed and that's what stops crimes."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Morgan and his two guests further debate the merits of LaPierre's CPAC words, the NRA's firearm position, and the general stance of gun safety in America.
