Skip to comments.Chris Wallace Skewers NRA’s Wayne LaPierre On Gun Violence: ‘That’s Ridiculous And You Know It, Sir’

On Fox News Sunday, following the segment featuring Mark Kelly, Chris Wallace interviewed National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre about various issues surrounding gun control ranging from background checks to mental health concerns to armed security at schools. Pressing LaPierre on his arguments, Wallace challenged him on some of his opposition to gun control.
Wallace began with background checks, citing the 1.7 million people whove been denied because of the checks but LaPierre argued that most of those people werent prosecuted, and we cant say they were stopped from getting a gun at all.
He further argued against calling them universal. Its a fraud to call it universal, LaPierre said, because criminals wont comply. Thus its more apt to call it a universal check into a universal registry of law-abiding people. And it will only create a bureaucratic nightmare.

bidden says we can’t background check everyone now, much less prosecute the ones they find trying to lie on the background check forms.
We now have an armed guard at the entrance to our local Home Depot. In CA where CC is almost non-existent. I guess he is there to keep out the illegals who pester the customers for jobs.
Another repugnant attack by the leftist media (meaining Mediaite). Wallace was also repugnant when he attacked LaPierre for saying there is an American elite. Every one of LaPierre’s points were correct, but Wallace had to find sone way to attack him. Miserable fail by Wallace.
Urban Poverty Law Center’s Paperwork Reduction Act for BATF form for background checks to buy a gun.
Do you already have a gun? Yes NO
If yes, skip the following form you can have another gun.
Because? WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE!
If anyone wants to get the flavor of the anti-gun side of the argument, just read the comments. Makes me want to go pound my head with a cement block.
The headline has it backwards. It was LaPierre who smacked Wallace down. Wallace came across as petty and petulent. Just another Obamabot.
Fox News no longer provides for easy communications with their individual shows or commentators , like Chris Wallace .
I wanted to tell him today “ I will never be watching your miserable ,prickly , program again. “
He tried his best to demean LaPierre , he was rude and insulting ,while at the same time fawning towards Gifford’s husband , Kelly . LaPierre should have just told the little twerp off .
You should read the comments at mediaite - libtards in full-on attack mode.
“I guess he is there to keep out the illegals who pester the customers for jobs.”
I go to the HD on Sunset Blvd. What pisses me off is that OSH right across it never had one mexillegal haunting the entrance for the past 5 years. And they are the ones closing after 20 years.
The only “skewering” that takes place is Chris Wallace proving he’s an ass.
Well, this Meenal author sounds like a retarded liberal who somehow got hired by Fox News out of affirmative action.
I don’t agree with Wallace that there’s no elite class. There is one and he’s a member.
The comments are so typical, they can’t come up with a logical argument to support their beliefs so they resort to the usual vilification rather than face reality.
Wallace is a dipshit pipsqueak.
Nonsense only an elitist believes.
Doesn't matter if you allegation is true or false.
To paraphrase Marshall McLuhan, "The ridicule is the message."
Time for somebody to list his address. Past time.
Wallace is just another corrupt pundiot using the FOX soapbox to spew his agenda.
