Lynch: ‘As a Prosecutor I Deal with the Aftermath of’ No New Gun Control

‘My view is always if we can get past talking about each other maybe we can talk to each other about how to manage the firearms in our society’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

MITCHELL: "The president said recently it's been the most frustrating example. He feels stymied by the failure to accomplish his goals on closing the loopholes, the gun show loophole, the things that are most obvious." 
LYNCH: "Well, certainly I share his frustration because as a prosecutor I deal with the aftermath of that. But you know, it's a very -- it's a very -- some say divisive issue. It has been divisive in many parts of our debate. It's an issue that brings forth a lot of strong opinions. I think all of those opinions should be heard. They should be at the table. My view is always if we can get past talking about each other maybe we can talk to each other about how to manage the firearms in our society."
