Larry Pratt, the executive director emeritus of Gun Owners of America, often blames mass shootings on a lack of armed “good guys with guns” ready to take down a shooter, saying that the ideal situation is for everyone to pack heat when they go to church, school, a political event or a bar. Pratt was questioned about this vision on CNN yesterday during a discussion of the recent mass shooting at a Florida gay club, which Pratt persisted in calling a “gun-free zone” despite the fact that shooter was met by an armed guard. After Pratt criticized Florida for... MORE >

Larry Pratt, an official with Gun Owners of America, suggested last week that Congress eliminate the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in response to the court’s recent ruling that the Second Amendment doesn’t protect the right of individual citizens to carry concealed firearms in public. Pratt joined Sam Bushman on his “Liberty Roundtable” program on Friday, where Bushman called the ruling “psychotic” and accused the Ninth Circuit judges of being “King George clones” responsible for “the destruction of the Second Amendment.” Bushman...

Conservative South Florida radio host Joyce Kaufman, who briefly served as chief of staff to former Republican Rep. Allen West, said today that she did not believe that the terrorist who killed 49 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando this weekend targeted the location out of animosity toward gay people, but instead because he knew that club-goers would be unarmed. “How long does he have to be the president before he figures out that what we had happen in Orlando was a terrorist act?” Kaufman asked of President Obama, who called the massacre an “act of terror and an act of...

Larry Pratt, the former executive director of Gun Owners of America, reacted yesterday to a Ninth Circuit ruling that there is no constitutional right to carry concealed weapons outside of the home, saying that the court was displaying a “totalitarian mindset” like that of King George III “and we know how that turned out.” “The Ninth Circuit clearly is showing the mentality of a totalitarian mindset,” Pratt told WorldNetDaily’s Radio America. “And they were the very kind of people that our forefathers objected to and sent letters of remonstrance...

Larry Pratt, the former executive director of Gun Owners of America, added Hillary Clinton this week to the list of public officials who he has warned will face violence from gun owners if they impose regulations on guns. Pratt, who said last month that if conservatives lose at the “ballot box” they might “have to resort to the bullet box,” said in an interview on the “Crosstalk” radio program on Tuesday that Clinton’s support for some gun regulations may be an attempt to disarm civilians so that she can impose tyranny. The Second Amendment means, he... MORE >

Larry Pratt, the executive director emeritus of Gun Owners of America, said on his “Gun Owners News Hour” radio program this weekend that if a Democrat wins the White House and the Supreme Court starts issuing decisions in favor of gun regulations, conservatives may turn to the “bullet box” to rectify the situation. Pratt was interviewing Robert Knight, a senior fellow at the American Civil Rights Union, who warned that “if a liberal Democrat is elected president, then there goes the Supreme Court, it could be two, three, four justices, and I think the Second...
