Dana Loesch: Monsters Exist and Millions of Americans Want to Protect Themselves
On Thursday, the NRA called for a federal review of "bump stocks," which were used by the gunman to alter his semi-automatic weapons to fire in an automatic fashion.
"Despite the fact that the Obama administration approved the sale of bump fire stocks on at least two occasions, the National Rifle Association is calling on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to immediately review whether these devices comply with federal law," the organization said in a statement.
Loesch said it's up to the ATF to do its job and be consistent no matter what Congress implements.
Loesch pointed out that Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) would ban all semi-automatic weapons if she could. She said there is a long history in mass shootings of the gunmen having mental health issues that were not addressed sufficiently.
"This idea that we're going to politicize something before an investigation is concluded just hurts the heart even more," she said, noting that little is known about 64-year-old Stephen Paddock's motive or state of mind.
"Monsters exist. It's a scary thing to realize evil is among us. ... Our members and millions of innocent Americans just want to know what they can do to protect themselves from those monsters," said Loesch.
Meantime, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said yesterday that she hopes a ban on "bump stock" will lead to a "slippery slope" for further gun control.
