NRA Spokesperson Responds To Las Vegas Massacre By Claiming ‘Feet’ Are Just As Deadly As Guns




Hours after the nation awoke to the deadliest mass shooting in its modern history, NRA spokesperson and radio host Dana Loesch dismissed calls for common-sense gun policies by claiming fists and feet are just as deadly as automatic and semiautomatic weapons.

In a Monday night tweet, Loesch responded to a press release by the American College of Physicians labeling mass shootings a “serious public health issue” and calling for a ban on automatic and semiautomatic weapons in the wake of the mass shooting in Las Vegas.

“We must acknowledge that lack of a U.S. policy to address gun violence is the reason we have much higher rates of injuries and deaths from firearms violence than other countries,” the organization said in a statement. “Specifically, we call for a ban on the sale and ownership of automatic and semiautomatic weapons.”

Loesch retweeted the release with the comment, “Right after we ban pools, cars, cigarettes, alcohol, hands feet and fists. Lives lost due to these constitute an epidemic.”




The NRA spokesperson added: “If it’s a “health issue,” cars, then hand, feet, and fists will be banned first (also pools).”
