Gun Owners' Pratt: Teach Kids That Guns Are 'Just As Much Fun' As Water Pistols

Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt appeared once again on conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ radio program last week to discuss his work to stop gun violence prevention legislation.

Jones told Pratt that the gun lobby needs to “get on the offense culturally, because they’ve got the kids in their clutches right now.” Pratt agreed, saying, “I think we have to push back in whatever smart way we can do to make sure that kids see, yeah having a gun is just as much fun as you thought it was when you were shooting your buddy with a water pistol yesterday.”

Earlier in the interview, Pratt and Jones were discussing their endless admiration for Texas senator Ted Cruz. Pratt reminisced about the infamous exchange between Cruz and California senator Dianne Feinstein, in which Cruz condescendingly “explained” the Constitution to Feinstein and she responded, “I’m not a sixth grader.”

Calling Feinstein a sixth grader, Pratt said, “would be an insult to sixth graders.” Jones agreed, saying Cruz “was so polite and calm with the logic, that’s why that witch got so upset.”
