Feinstein Blames the NRA for Blocking Measures that Could Make Guns Safer

‘So there are a lot of things that could be done to make it safer’


FEINSTEIN: "Well, I don’t agree with that. First of all, let me say I’m delighted he’s back at work. He’s obviously a very strong man. All I can say is right on, continue, Mr. Congressman. I’m very happy. That’s one good thing this week. I don’t agree with that. There is still a lot of descent over the court’s decision with respect to the Second Amendment. Be that as it may, the court has decided, and Americans generally fall in line. So let’s say from the perspective of this decision it is legal for an American to carry a weapon. It’s legal for them to drive a car. However, they register that car. We should perhaps look, and the NRA says, you know, guns don’t kill people, people kill people. Well, cars don’t kill people. People driving them kill people. So there are a lot of things that could be done to make it safer. But every single one has been opposed by a very powerful organization that then goes out to get any congresman or senator that votes to the contrary. That’s a fact of life."
