Larry Pratt, president of Gun Owners of America, was a guest on Gordon Klingenschmitt’s “Pray In Jesus Name” program once again today where he amazingly asserted that those who push for gun control legislation are insane zealots who are fundamentally immune to facts.
As Pratt explained it, liberals are motivated entirely by “feelings” and therefore push for things like gun-free zones solely because they feel safer without guns around, failing to realized that gun-free zones are actually making them less safe because it leaves them vulnerable to mass shooting attacks.
“Their feelings are so intense that the string of mass murder after mass murder in gun-free zones just doesn’t seem to shake them off that conviction,” Pratt said, before asserting that conservatives, on the other hand, always ensure that their views and positions are rooted in fact and reality.
“We live in a rather ddifferent universe from those who support gun control,” he said. “And just to repeat, the facts just don’t seem to ever get under their skin. I guess it’s the definition of a zealot that no matter how many times he fails at doing something, he knows that if he does it one more time the same way, he’s going to succeed.

Then, without a hint of irony, Pratt immediately followed up that statement by declaring that it is the mission of his organization to completely eliminate all gun control laws.
“We want to see gun control legislation taken off the books,” he said. “We think ‘shall not be infringed’ means shall not be infringed, period! No other discussion is permitted by that language”:
