Executive Vice President and CEO of the National Rifle Association, Wayne LaPierre, told CBS anchor John Dickerson Sunday on “Face the Nation” that he opposes Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s claim that people should be allowed to carry concealed weapons in places where alcohol is being consumed.
The ongoing speculation surrounding the June 12 terrorist attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando is if shooter Omar Mateen was motivated by radical Islamic ideology, LGBT hatred or if he was simply insane and had easy access to an extremely powerful weapon.

LaPierre noted that the assailants in these shootings the country has experienced in recent years have one major thing in common: They were all committed to inflicting mass casualties and destruction.
“John, I think we to look right in the face of who these people are that we’re facing,” he said. “They don’t care about the law. Laws didn’t stop them in Boston. Laws didn’t stop them in San Bernardino, where you had every type of gun control law you could have. And they didn’t stop them in Paris, where people can’t even own guns.”
LaPierre noted that the Paris attackers had fully automatic guns, ICDs and explosives.
