Wayne LaPierre misses the point.

The NRA’s executive VP has been trotting out this argument that we don’t need background checks for firearms purchases because criminals will just get guns anyway – as if that’s a good reason to make it easier on them.

He tried it while testifying to congress yesterday, saying you’ll never get criminals to go through background checks.  This prompted Patrick Leahy (D-VT) to say, “That’s the point.”

Note the applause when Leahy points out the obvious.
