Larry Pratt: Las Vegas Shooter ‘Thought The Same As Most Muslims’

Larry Pratt, the executive director emeritus of Gun Owners of America, joined South Carolina radio host Rocky Disabato on his podcast on Monday, where he claimed that whether the shooter responsible for the deadly attack in Las Vegas last weekend turns out to have been connected to the Islamic State is irrelevant because he “thought the same as most Muslims.”

After speculating on the weaponry that the shooter could have used in the massacre, Pratt said, “When a guy is evil, it doesn’t mean he’s stupid, it just means he doesn’t care about anybody else. And in a case like this guy, whether he was Muslim or not, he thought the same as most Muslims. He wants to kill unbelievers. He wants to kill people that he doesn’t like. Maybe he just didn’t like Las Vegas—I don’t know, and it probably doesn’t matter.”
